Stanton Rookie Cards Wake Up Industry

Yes, that's right: Giancarlo (Mike) Stanton just hit 59 home runs in 2017. As of writing this, he's 27 years old, soon to turn 28 next month, November 8th. 27-hey, isn't that the "rockstar death" age?

Well, there seems nothing that morbid or dark happening in Giancarlo's life other than not making the postseason again and oh yes-the absence of friend and co-player, Jose Fernandez. Jose would have entered this season at a mere 25 years of life. That horrible loss was only a year ago, September 26th. Was his loss what kept Stanton blasting away all year? What inspired him most?

Jeter and the rest of Marlins brass will have the task of figuring out what to do with Stanton. I mean...obviously, you keep him, right? Who in their right mind wouldn't?

In eight years, Stanton has a .268 average with 267 home runs. Shower us with 672 runs batted in and a lovely 576 runs scored. This is why this card over here, is starting to creep up in value at $120 (but only when in this condition (8.5-10) and when graded). Some of his other rookie cards are starting to jump up in price too. Obviously, the time is right to invest in Stanton. Thing is, it was always the right time.
