Future Watch: Zack Collins Rookie Baseball Cards, White Sox – Zack Collins was selected 10th overall by the Chicago White Sox in the 2016 MLB Amateur Draft. He was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 2013 but instead of turning pro he decided to go to Miami and play some college baseball.
Collins, a noted slugger, was the first player in the history of Miami to earn consecutive nominations to the All-ACC team in 2015-16 since Jon Jay did it back in 2005-2006.
Known as one of the best players to don a Hurricanes jersey, Collins was a semifinalist for the 2016 Golden Spikes Award, as one of 25 best players in country. He was also a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy as the best player in college baseball for 2016. His .364 average, .630 slugging percentage and 52 RBI were a big reason why.
He helped his team get to the College World Series, they didn’t win, he did hit a home run and later won the Johnny Bench Award as the nation’s top collegiate catcher.
As a highly touted prospect, Collins has been on the radar of collectors and manufactures ever since being drafted in 2013. As a result he has several autographed cards in the market. You can find Zack Collins autographed baseball cards in the following trading card products:

According to his MLB.com draft profile:
One of the best all-around hitters available in the 2016 Draft, Collins stands out most with his left-handed power. He’s strong, owns a quick bat and has good loft in his stroke. He’s more than just a masher, however, as he’s patient and controls the strike zone extremely well, which should help him hit for average and record high on-base percentages. ETA 2018.
Here’s a look at Collins in action:
In A+ ball with the Winston Salem Dash, Collins hit six homers and drove in 18. He had an impressive .418 on-base percentage. This kid is a lock to be a pro and he should be an All-Star early in his career.
