Bryce Harper rookie cards have become some of the most coveted baseball cards in the hobby. Bryce has lived up to the hype while becoming one of the most feared power hitters major league baseball has ever seen. Harper terrorizes pitchers by smashing the ball to all parts of the field. His bat speed is downright incredible and among the best in the game. His age also plays a factor in his rookie cards. Bryce is only 23 years old! This means that his baseball cards are going to be on the radar of most collectors for a long period of time. Even though Harper will be competing with Mike Trout and Kris Bryant collectors you can expect his rookie cards to skyrocket in the years to come.
Card companies like Topps, Panini and Upper Deck have worked very hard on capitalizing from Harpers immense popularity. He already has over 75 different rookie cards that have been produced of him. Some of these baseball cards are limited in production while others even have Bryce Harper autographs splashed on the front of the card.

Both Topps and Upper Deck have included signed Bryce Harper cards in their recent sets. Panini has also invested in Bryce by adding his autographs to many of their new popular Prizm sets.
Some these unique autographed cards are more limited than others. Upper Deck USA Baseball cards have Red Ink autographs have been deemed scarcer than blue or black autographs. These variations are added by card companies to increase the value and demand of these cool looking cards.
