ISA Highlights 2023’s Top Athlete Card Submissions: Ohtani, Jordan, and Wembanyama Lead the Pack

ISA, the leading authority in sports card grading, is proud to unveil the top athlete card submissions of 2023. This year has been filled with exciting trends, as MLB superstar Shohei Ohtani takes the lead in card submissions. Ohtani, fresh off a massive $700 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has captured the attention of collectors worldwide, propelling his cards to the top of the grading charts. In fact, Ohtani holds not one but four spots in the top 10 most graded sports cards of the year.

While Ohtani’s dominance is undeniable, basketball legend Michael Jordan continues to hold his ground in the world of card submissions. As a beloved figure in the sports industry, Jordan’s cards remain highly sought after by collectors of all ages. His presence in the top submissions serves as a reminder of his everlasting impact on the hobby.

The list of top athletes in card submissions to ISA for 2023 is a mix of legendary and rising stars. Alongside Ohtani and Jordan, other notable names include Julio Rodriguez, Trevor Lawrence, Joe Burrow, Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Ken Griffey Jr., and Victor Wembanyama. With such a diverse range of talent, this year’s most graded sports cards truly showcase the essence of the sports card collecting community.

Football enthusiasts have also shown their enthusiasm through increased card submissions. Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields leads the way with a remarkable 119% increase compared to the previous year. His impressive performances on the field have undoubtedly caught the attention of collectors, making his rookie cards highly sought after.

Trevor Lawrence, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ promising quarterback, closely follows Fields with a 98% increase in card submissions. As a highly anticipated rookie, Lawrence’s presence in the hobby comes as no surprise. Additionally, Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce has experienced a significant uptick in submissions, potentially influenced by his high-profile relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift.

Rookie cards continue to be a hot commodity in the world of card grading submissions across all sports. In basketball, Paolo Banchero and Victor Wembanyama, two rising stars in the sport, lead the pack in terms of card submissions. These young talents have captured the imagination of collectors, fueling the demand for their rookie cards.

Football’s rising stars also make their mark, with Kenny Pickett and Brock Purdy shining in the realm of card submissions. These rookies have already shown great potential on the field, and collectors are eager to secure their cards as part of their growing collections.

The realm of baseball is no different, with Elly De La Cruz and Adley Rutschman leading the list of the most submitted rookie cards. These emerging talents have caught the attention of baseball fans and collectors alike, solidifying their presence in the sports card market.

At ISA, we are thrilled to offer our top-notch grading services to these exceptional athletes and many other valuable sports cards.
