During my trip last week I had my mail held and the Post Office managed to lose all of my held mail. I do not mind if they lose my bills and those annoying grocery store ads, but you cannot lose my baseball cards. I was determined and it only took a week, but my carrier happened upon them finally yesterday morning.
Here's what was in my mail.
I was really excited to get my hands on a Alex Bregman card. He's currently a shortstop at LSU, but has several autographs out already in USA Baseball products. I saw Bregman play for the college version of the USA Baseball team and was incredibly impressed. Others have taken note and his card prices have started to pick up. I do not think that he's going to be the first pick or anything, but I would guess he's in the first half of the first round.
I am still going to try to add a few more of his cards beyond this autograph and he will be a player you should watch this spring as the college baseball season starts. A good season and a deep run into the NCAA tournament could help his cards out even more.
Speaking of LSU, I also picked up a copy of another Bowman Platinum Mike Mahtook autograph. Mahtook was an All-American at LSU where he won an SEC batting title and was a member of the 2009 College World Series Championship team.
