Underrated Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon hits just like another famous CF – Joe DiMaggio

Not everyone can hit like the great New York Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio. But Charlie Blackmon of the Colorado Rockies did something for a center fielder that hasn't been done since 1937 when the aforementioned DiMaggio accomplished the feat.

Not everyone can hit like the great New York Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio.

But Charlie Blackmon of the Colorado Rockies did something for a center fielder that hasn’t been done since 1937 when the aforementioned DiMaggio accomplished the feat.

As the tweet above noted, Blackmon finished with 135+ runs, 100+ RBIs and a .300+ batting average.

For some reason though, he hasn’t gotten the level of respect in the hobby world for a player who has consistently in past seasons put up stellar numbers.

His 2009 Bowman Chrome Prospects base autograph (BGS Graded 9.5/10) is available for just $120.

Even a lot of two of his 2009 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractors with both having a pristine grading of BGS 10/10 goes for less than $1,900.

Perhaps if he played for a more historic team of if the Rockies can somehow manage to get a Wild Card berth, his rookie card value might increase to the level it deserves.
