Jude Bellingham

2020-20 Topps Chrome Bundesliga #31

Leading up to the World Cup, Bellingham was in the midst of an excellent season in the Bundesliga for Dortmund.  Known for his composure and ability to control play in the mid-field, Bellingham has the look of a future English national team captain.  Like most of the stars on this list, transfer rumors constantly follow Bellingham.  It is likely that he will be wearing a Liverpool or Real Madrid jersey at the start of next season.  One of Bellingham’s earliest trading cards is his 2020-21 Topps Chrome Bundesliga.  A PSA 9 copy of this card costs $20 and a PSA 10 is $60.
