Looks like the Houston Astros are firing on all cylinders, leading the league with its 41-16 record.
It certainly doesn’t hurt when the leadoff hitter is George Springer who just hit two homeruns in Sunday’s game against the Texas Rangers.
Hitting an impressive .280 with a .350 OBP and slugging 16 homeruns in 52 games played. He’s well on his way to beating his career high of 29.
We’ve already written about his potential upside before the season started and how his 2011 Bowman Chrome Draft base autographed rookie seemed to be a great buy low at $80.
Now that he’s leading off in a potent offence, his card is already up around $135. The way the Astros are hitting, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see his card value continue to climb.
