Baseball Cards of the 2021 MLB 1st Round Draft Picks

Share:

By the end of the year, collectors will likely have several sets to choose from when it comes to baseball cards of the 2021 MLB draft picks. For roughly two-thirds of the first round picks, collectors can get a head start.

Thanks to Panini’s USA Baseball and Leaf’s Perfect Game lineups, the majority of 2021 first rounders have at least some cards. This includes lots of autographs and a smattering of memorabilia cards.

In particular, the top part of the draft is well represented with all five of the first selections — Henry Davis (Pittsburgh), Jack Leiter (Texas), Jackson Jobe (Detroit), Marcelo Mayer (Boston) and Colton Cowser (Baltimore) — having cards to chase.

Their first MLB cards will likely arrive with the December release of 2021 Bowman Draft. 2021 Bowman’s Best Baseball is a possibility as well.

If they keep with recent years, both Panini and Leaf should have multiple prospect products as well.

Here’s a breakdown of how the first round of 2021 MLB Draft according to baseball cards and what there is to collect.
