With his 20th home run this season off the Philadelphia Phillies last night, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout made history.
He became the fourth player in American League history to hit at least 20 homers before the age of 26 joining such greats as Mickey Mantle, Tony Conigliaro, and Alex Rodriguez.
Despite his earlier DL stint this season, Trout has been able to put up the numbers while healthy. His consistency is what makes collecting his rookie cards a relatively safe investment.
But as baseball fans, this generational player should be a must add to anyone’s collection.
