Nevermind that Grady Sizemore is a great baseball player who only seems to be improving. He is a guy with speed, power, and the ability to score 100 runs every year. You won’t get an argument from me, as I have his cards in my Stars Box. My question to you, the sports cards collector is simple: is his rookie card worth $10,000 to you or anyone you know? Here is one number that sticks out like a sore thumb when I look at his stats: 150+ strike outs in back to back season. That would be fine if he were a 40/120 guy in each season but he has never driven in 100 runs and has never hit more than 28 home runs.
I love that the guy makes an effort to compare the 2001 Albert Pujols rookie to this one but sorry, when compared to a guy like Albert Pujols stat-wise, Grady is a scrub. I understand it might be impossible to find another “PRISTINE” 2000 Bowman Draft Picks Grady Sizemore autograph but for under $300 you can buy the non-graded version of this exact card and have a lot more money left in your bank account, or Pay Pal balance.
