Dustin Pedroia 2014 Panini Prizm – ‘Chasing The Hall’
I love the theme of this subset and it is one that I really need to review. Why? Because I am always interested in seeing who people/companies think will be elected into the Hall of Fame when their careers are over. For me, there is no greater conversation.
As for Mr. Pedroia, I would put him at a 50/50 right now. But, he would probably get my vote. He’s got the ROY, and the MVP, and two World Series rings. He’s got multiple Silver Slugger awards and a few Gold Gloves too. Plus, he is a team leader and face of the franchise. Now, he just needs to continue to stay on the field and contribute. His stats will build naturally, but Boston has to surround him with talent that allows him to use his in the best manner possible.
For a player in his ‘age 30’ season, he had a solid career average of .300 with more than 1,350 hits. The hits, doubles, and runs scored all have a long way to go to be ‘HOF-worthy’ but I think he has a good shot to make a run at it.
Time for me to track down the checklist of this set.
