Cincinnati Reds’ (and OBP stud) Joey Votto chasing after Ted Williams record, rookie card garnering interest

As of last night, Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto reached on base at least twice for 20 consecutive games putting him one shy of tying Ted Williams’ MLB record.

It’s an extraordinary achievement that can often be underrated especially this year when compared to Giancarlo Stanton’s incredible home run pace.

Williams, who was a great hitter himself, accomplished his 21-game streak back in 1948, which goes to show how difficult it is to be consistently reliable in getting on base any way you can.

Votto has certainly demonstrated it in his career showcasing his great eye for swinging at only pitches in the zone and knowing when to take a walk.

Here’s hoping he ties then surpasses Williams’ record. In the meantime, here’s a great autographed rookie card (2004 Bowman Signs of the Future) available on eBay (BGS Graded 9.5/10) currently going for $595.

A BGS Graded 9/10 is going for less at $249.99 here.
