Baseball Card Show Purchase #1 – Justin Verlander 2006 Upper Deck ROOKIE Card
I had no intention of buying a Justin Verlander rookie card, or any card for that matter, but when I saw this guy resting in a bargain bin, I figured that it was worth the dime that it cost me to bring home.
And after Justin’s performance in Game 1 of the ALDS, I knew that I made the right decision.
This guy is one of the Top 5 pitchers in the game right now. He has a lot of qualities that I like in my pitchers. It’s just a shame that MLB does not market their pitchers the way that they do their hitters – Verlander should be a household name!!!
