Hottest Mike Trout Cards on eBay

Mike Trout grew up wanting to be Derek Jeter so it’s almost fitting that Trout, a New Jersey native, be the player many believe will pick up the mantle as the unofficial ‘face of baseball’.   At a couple of weeks shy of his 23rd birthday, he was the youngest All-Star Game MVP since Ken Griffey Jr.

The hottest Mike Trout 2009 orange refractor auto Mike Troutbaseball cards range from his 2009 Bowman Chrome autographs to the standard issue 2011 Topps Update.  If you bought in early, congratulations.  The good thing is, it looks like he’ll be around long enough to still get in on the action.

Trout’s early success hasn’t been a total surprise but if you thought he’d be this good, this fast and bought those early 2009 models for $40 and $50 each back then, you’re sitting on a nice little pile of cash.

Could it all come crashing down?  Maybe. 2011 Topps Update Mike Trout Anything can happen but by now, it’s pretty obvious he’s no fluke and it would take some sort of chronic injury to keep him from playing at an extremely high level.  The odds appear stacked more in the direction of Trout becoming one of the game’s all-time greats.

He was awarded his first American League MVP award in November 2014 and seems like a good candidate to win the award multiple times.

The rising value of his roookie and prospect cards have paralleled his on field success, offering one of those rare occasions when even the base card in a standard issue product can turn to gold.

Topps Update Trout rookies sell for $125-$175 in PSA 10 or BGS 9.5.  2011 Bowman Trout base cards (#101) bring $25 ungraded while a non-autographed rookie refractor in a ’10’ holder or a parallel color can bring $90 or more.

In the summer of 2013, a 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks Blue Refractor Trout autograph graded PGS 9.5 sold for $3,550.  Just a couple of months earlier, the same card had sold for $2,897.  Now that first figure seems like a bargain.
