Earlier this year I added a Matt Szczur autograph. That was easy. He's not a big name or a hyped rookie.
Today's two were not as easy, as one is a big name and the other is a hyped rookie.
This would be the big name. I'm writing this before Lester takes the mound against the Cardinals in Game One. Hopefully the team gets a decent return on its $155 million investment.
Here is the hype rookie. I actually thought a week ago that I should get a Schwarber auto before the playoffs begin, just in case he does well and the prices get jacked up. Turned out to be a wise move. Jacking a ball into the Allegheny does make your card prices go up.
There are still two more extra-hyped rookies that I haven't picked up yet, Addison Russell and Kris Bryant. I think I'm going to have to wait a couple years before their autographed card prices drop into my price range.
I'm a Cub fan. I'm used to waiting. It's what we do.
