In my morning jog around the internet, I happened upon an article on the Florida Marlins’ homepage praising the early returns from top Marlins prospects Michael Stanton and Matt Dominguez. We all know about Stanton’s prolific power, but this article gave a closer glimpse of what he can do. As I dug a little deeper, I noticed another article praising Stanton’s immense talents procured by none other than ESPN’s own Peter Gammons.
Currently, Stanton has several 2008 autographed RC’s on the market right now with the Bowman Chrome Draft autos selling in the greatest volumes at about $40-45 each. A considerably cheaper purchase are his ’08 Razor Autos #/1199 that sell at just $15-17 each. Stanton may very well be the best power hitter in all of the minor leagues this next season, and it is not out of the question to think that he may be in the major leagues at some point in 2010. If he continues on his pace of 40+ HR per season, we may look back on these prices and wonder why we didn’t buy more.
