It becomes much tougher to accumulate as many counting stats when a player has an age 25 rookie season. Sure, it's still possible for him to have a HOF career but not at the same level as what Trout could potentially put together and he's the only player to exceed and maintain a base auto value above $1k.

    I could still be wrong. Like you said, there is the Yankees hype factor which is completely unpredictable. I remember thinking the same thing when his base auto was selling for roughly $600.

    No doubt, I am there with you 100%. I was just suggesting to possibly hold until the end of this season.
    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    Forbes article said he was one of the biggest position players in MLB history, I have to think over time injuries will develop as that may not be good for the joints/ligaments to be 6-7 carrying almost three spins of mass. Might have to move him to 1B or DH at some point so it's less stress on the body.

    I'm really torn. I was down on him in the off-season, as most people were, as he had shown in his brief MLB time all the power, none of the eye. I sold the few Judges I had back in April in the initial surge. Now I'd love to have some of his cards but the prices are ridiculous and I just have to wait (maybe a decade or two). Maybe just a Heritage auto. Oh wait, that's like a grand. Sheesh.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases and Grady Sizemores I don't have

    I sold what I had despite being a fan. The reality is he's having a major rookie year but he's 25 which is a year older than Harper and same age as Trout.

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.
