Happy 42nd birthday to Vladimir Guerrero – future hall of famer

Vladimir Guerrero turns 42 today and despite just missing entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame on his first ballot, it seems just a matter of time until he does.

We already suggested his rookie card value should see an increase once he’s inducted into the hall of fame (potentially next year).

A couple of his rookie cards donning the uniform of the long-defunct Montreal Expos team, are his 1995 Bowman’s Best #2 (left) and the 1995 Bowman #90.

Both are reasonably priced currently (graded PSA 9) for $50 and $40, respectively.

screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-2-46-17-pmWe suspect one person wishing his old man a happy birthday will be his son Vladimir Guerrero Jr., currently a prospect in the Toronto Blue Jays system.

It’s far too early to call whether a hall of fame-career is in the cards for Junior (who is only 17 years old) but he certainly has the pedigree.

Junior can be found in some top 100 lists of 2017 prospects already and seems like collectors are banking that his father’s genes will help him be a successful player in the big leagues.

His 2016 Bowman Chrome rookie autographed card (BGS graded 9.5) is currently going for three times his father’s rookie at $160.

  1. When I think of Glad I think Expos. Goodness they had such an amazing team back in the 90’s. I remember hearing about him almost joining the 40-40 club as a ‘Spo. So much talent and a sure bet HOF’er. Still got his card packed away.
