Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer was valued much higher when he first entered the big leagues with his arsenal of pitches.
But it didn’t translate right away to big league success and his 2011 Bowman Chrome Draft autograph rookie card took a tumble.

The Indians, who gained tremendous momentum with the historic 22-win streak, could give a nice boost to some key players like Bauer if they go far into the playoffs.
Only time will tell. In the meantime, there are other refractor versions with lower print run that could prove to be more valuable in the future.
