Undervalued? – Managers of the Year
October 3, 2017 § Leave a comment
You know that crappy backup catcher whose autograph you used to always pull fifteen years ago? What about that journeyman infielder who was lucky to even have an autographed card to begin with.
Well once these guys turn into managers they are worth something. Once they turn into managers who got their team in the playoffs, their value should skyrocket. Or at least you would think.
Currently you can buy autographed cards from the potential Manager of the Year in both leagues for under $5 each if you look hard enough. I snatched up 2 A.J. Hinch cards for $2 last weekend. Torey Lovullo’s autograph was double that at $4 so I only got one. Managers cards values have been going like hotcakes in the recent hobby environment. Try getting a Joe Maddon or Bruce Bochy autographed card. That will cost you at least $40 each.
