5 Notable Shohei Ohtani Sales Close in May 2018 with Cumulative Value of Over $50k

May 2018 was monster month for Shohei Ohtani sales. The following Shohei Ohtani cards sold that month with a cumulative value of over $50k. Given the volume of sales moving through eBay on a daily basis, I try to feature the super boutique stuff almost exclusively. The following 5 cards fall into this elite category of cards with print runs of 5 or less.

In recent weeks, we've seen the first Red Refractor fetch north of $30k. The second one that surfaced, which is featured here, closed at nearly $5k more. Two plates were finally listed auction style, which allowed the market to decide the final value. Additionally, both the Platinum 1/1 and a Red /5 closed with serious numbers.

Given the recent news of Shohei Ohtani's possible need for Tommy Joh surgery, we're likely to see final values fall in the coming weeks. Regardless of what happens, we can always appreciate his rookie cards while he recovers.

Here are 5 notable sales of Shohei Ohtani baseball cards that closed in May 2018 with a cumulative value of over $50k.
