Fishing For Red Trout

In my last post, I showed the Carlos Correa bowman chrome autograph that I got in return for selling my Ichiro booklet. The Correa wasn't the only card that I got with the Ichiro money. I was also to pick up another autograph of one of the games biggest stars, if not the best player of the past few years. The Yankees have still been doing absolutely terrible, and there aren't many current Yankees that I want to collect. The only player that I have interest in collecting is Austin Romine, the Yankees backup catcher. A player that has spent the past 8 years fighting to get to the majors, and has really struggled previously in the majors. He's been up and down, but in AAA for the most part. Romine is batting towards .300 with a pair of home runs. Not only that, but he has also been the most consistent on the Yankees. The rest of the Yankees team has looked like trash; it's really frustrating to watch. So yeah, my favorite player on the Yankees is their backup catcher. Now onto the main card of this post...

Mike Trout 2015 Bowmans Best red refractor autograph /5! The only other Trout autograph I've owned is a Topps Supreme /5, but it's definitely not as nice as this. This card is beautiful. There's nothing else to say about this card. It's going to be tough for me to move this card, but it's in the cycle of never ending cards, and Trout isn't a Yankee. Most cards I keep are of either Nolan Arenado, or a Yankee. Too bad Mike Trout isn't on the Yankees... Maybe he'll bear pinstripes sometime in his future...
Thank you for reading!


  1. That is a fine looking piece of cardboard.

  2. I think you have to say Beltran is our most consistent.. but Romine has certainly impressed. Beautiful Trout!
