After a season in which Ronald Acuna Jr. almost joined the prestigious 40/40 club, it comes as no surprise to see many fantasy experts ranking him number 1 on their big boards.  Many would say these so-called gurus would do well to wipe the foam from their mouths and remember Mike Trout still exists.  BUT maybe, just maybe, they’re ...

  It wasn’t long ago when Alex Kirilloff rivaled the likes of Wander Franco and Luis Robert for the honors of the game’s top prospect.  Then came 2019.  In what turned out to be a disappointing season down on the farm, Kiriloff saw his powers numbers dwindle to just 9 long balls and 43 RBI over 375 at-bats.  Compare those ...

Last year, Shane Bieber showed he had what it takes to be a bonafide ACE.  In just his second season, the young righty amassed over 200 innings (214 to be precise) and racked up 259 strikeouts.  In addition to those 10.9 K’s per 9 innings, the sophomore also flashed another important trait of a true ace:  the ability to go ...

Shohei Ohtani will soon have the ball back in his right hand.  Which means, that oh so talented right arm is about to be put to good use.  And with a return to the mound, we’ll finally get to see our first glimpse of the 2-way star at full health.  Therefore, you can expect to see his rookie card value ...

Michael Kopech seems poised to break onto the scene in a BIG way.  Or maybe since he throws 105 MPH, breaking onto the scene in a FAST way is more like it.  Either way, he’s coming and the strike out’s are going to start piling up. Quickly.  That said, you may want to begin piling up some of his rookie ...

Most card collectors will have heard of Beckett in some shape or form. Launched by James Beckett in the mid 1980’s, he was responsible for many of the early industry price guides from the 70’s, and his company eventually progressing into grading in 1999. In the here and now, the Beckett Grading Service (BGS) is a leading name when it ...

The abrupt exit of Mookie Betts has created quite the void in the middle of the BoSox line up.  All signs point to Rafael Devers being ready to fill it.  In his third season (and first full one) Rafael made a BIG splash on the scene by compiling a .311/.361/.916 triple-slash to go along with 32 round-trippers (stats courtesy of ...

Last year, Willie Calhoun showed some MASSIVE potential.  Which means, there’s just as much potential in a sound Willie Calhoun rookie card investment strategy (related: Gavin Lux Rookie Cards)! In what was a breakout season for the young slugger, Calhoun posted 21 long balls to go with 48 RBI in only half a season of at-bats.  We, like many others, ...

Ken Griffey Jr. rookie cards are some of the best investments in the hobby and are hotter than hotcakes. The retired outfielder spent the majority of his career with the Seattle Mariners and Cincinnati Reds.  A living legend, he made the MLB All-Century Team, and was a 13-time All-Star over two decades. Here’s a list with five of the best ...

Kobe Bryant (aka The Black Mamba, aka KB24) was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft (talk about an absolute steal!) Kobe Bean Bryant (was born on August 23, 1978, and passed on January 26, 2020, in a tragic helicopter accident. He was an American professional basketball player and was considered ...
