A Flyer on Fister

Speculation is always a good thing with baseball cards.  I have always liked Doug Fister and really enjoyed watching him pitch the past few years with the Tigers.  He's not a front of the line pitcher, but he's a solid middle of the rotation guy who can eat some innings.  Mix in a few strikeouts and a heavy dose of ground balls and you have the makings of a pretty good pitcher.  I was bummed to see him traded away to the Nationals this off season, but it still gives Fister the chance to pitch for a contender when he returns from a stint on the Disabled List.  This Panini Prizm card was mine for less than $2. 

While I am not a huge fan of the whole unlicensed card thing, I am willing to overlook the lack of logos for a $2 of a good pitcher.  This is Fister's only certified autograph, so if you are looking to add a copy of his autograph this card is your only choice.  Hopefully it will be a good year for Fister, but $2 is a low risk roll of the dice.

  1. This is an interesting read about Doug Fister. He was sneaky good with the Tigers. I surprised by some of the stats.
