My First Mike Trout Auto!

Mike Trout is without question the best player in baseball and has been for years. I should have bought a handful of his autos when I had the chance but I distinctly remember deciding to wait. Idiot moves, we all make them. Fast forward to late last year and I told myself if the right deal came along I would finally take the plunge and add my first certified auto of the future Hall of Famer (I have one IP auto of his).

A lot of patience and an overseas auction combined to land me the above beauty! You always remember your first time, they say. It's numbered 22/50 and hails from the Supreme Stylings subset of 2013 Topps Supreme Baseball. I would have preferred on-card but eventually I'll add a hard-signed Trouty to the collection. For now I'm more than pleased with the pickup.

After a few eBay Bucks -- and a chunk of cash my grandfather gave me -- my out of pocket expenditure was less than $25 for a Mike Trout auto! Even if I had been in a position where I had to foot the entire bill I feel I got a steal for a certified Trout signature limited to just 50 copies.


  1. Yowza, very nice. That's a whale!

    Hey I sent you an email a few days ago, but I'm not sure if you got it. Would you send me your address, I just want to make sure I'm sending your prize package to the right place. After a couple misdirected packages I'm double checking with everyone to make sure I'm up to date and you haven't moved. Oh and if you have an special leanings on football teams or what not. I'll be going through your want list this weekend hopefully and getting prize packages out early next week.

  2. I would love to have one myself. Great addition my friend.

  3. Congratulations! That's a great looking card.
