Baseball Card Show Purchase #2 – 2013 Bowman Colin Moran ROOKIE CARD!!!
Sure, he is not a household name, not even in Miami. But, the expectations for Colin Moran are pretty high.
He was the 6th pick in the draft, chosen by the Marlins to be their future third baseman.
Moran had a solid career at the University of North Carolina, and he was the ACC Player Of The Year in 2013. He played in the Arizona Fall League for the Marlins this year and he did fairly well, even homering in his first at-bat as a professional baseball player.
I was very excited to see that Colin was included in the 2013 Bowman set this year, and I picked up his rookie card from one of my favorite dealers at the show.
3B has long been a hole in the Marlins’ defense. Since losing Miguel Cabrera and Mike Lowell, the ‘Fish’ have yet to truly find a replacement at ‘The Hot Corner’.
Hopefully Colin Moran is that answer!
