Today’s all about the Update (& Chrome). One thing to note when researching (or buying) Lindor rookies is he doesn’t have a Base Topps Chrome Update rookie. His only TCU rookie is the Rookie Debut, but by now we all know those should be avoided.
The Lindor Base PSA 10 has been between $35-$65 since the start of 2019. As we discussed a few days ago, we see Lindor as the top shortstop in the MLB. For a longterm investment, it doesn’t get much better than an Update PSA 10 RC of a superstar for under $70.
There aren’t many parallels of the Update Lindor. After the base, there is only the gold /2015, foil, and black /62. The gold and foil PSA pop reports are extremely low (under 20 10s for each parallel). There will always be a premium placed on these parallels for Lindor RCs, compared to someone like Acuña that has more #’d parallels (not saying that’s a bad thing, just lower supply of parallels for Lindor). There are barely any gold /2015 PSA 10s that have sold, leaving the ungraded more attainable.
The very last card is NOT an Update rookie. It is from the regular chrome release. Lindor’s Topps Chrome RC is incredibly short printed. There are only 191 Lindor Topps Chrome Base RCs graded by PSA, compared to Kris Bryant’s 1,601. The other thing to note about Lindor’s Topps Chrome RC is there was only a green, gold, red, and Superfractor produced (no prism, pink, refractor, etc.). This makes the already short printed base a much better investment, due to the overall supply being very low.Wanting to grade any of your raw Lindor Updates?
