Wanna buy a vehicle once driven by a young Mike Trout? You can—and he’s even signed it for you.
Upon getting his driver’s license in 2007, the Millville, NJ native’s parents bought him a used 2000 Ford Ranger pickup. A couple of years later he was a first round draft pick and bought his own car. Trout then sold the truck to the parents of his girlfriend, who, just like Trout’s parents, gifted the truck to their son when he got his license in 2012.
That teenager was Aaron Cox, who became a pretty good player himself and was drafted by the Angels where he’s currently in the minors. Cox, like Trout, bought himself a new car after getting drafted and decided to get his future brother-in-law to sign the glove compartment and auction it off.
It’s now at Goldin Auctions with a $15,000 minimum bid.
