Oneil Cruz’s rookie cards were a white-hot buy heading into the 2023 MLB season. But unfortunately, in April Oneil Cruz had surgery to repair a left fractured fibula. He suffered the injury when colliding with White Sox catcher Seby Zavala, this caused his rookie cards to cool down, and now is the perfect time to buy a few and wait with a big smile on your face.
Cruz is one of the brightest youngers in the game and recently set an MLB record for hitting the hardest-hit batted ball (122.4 mph) in the Statcast era.
This kid is an absolute beast! If you thought Jordan Walker was tall check out Mr. Cruz who checks in at 6 foot 7 inches and tips the scales at 220 pounds.
In 2022 Cruz batted .233 with 17 homers, 54 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, and finished 6th in Rookie of the Year voting while only appearing in only 87 ball games.
Now is the perfect time to load up on some of Cruz’s rookie cards as the Pittsburgh Pirates don’t expect Cruz to make a return to the MLB until August 2023.
Here are our top three Oneil Cruz baseball rookie cards to buy now and laugh all the way to the bank once he continues MLB pitchers.
