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.

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.
