World Series MVP awarded to George Springer, 2014 Sports Illustrated cover predicting Astros victory skyrockets in value

What a series for Houston Astros George Springer who hit five home runs including in four straight games, adding up to 29 total bases.

Screen Shot 2017-11-02 at 1.17.10 AM.pngHe’s deserving of the World Series MVP. What makes this really interesting is that the 2014 Sports Illustrated issue predicted the Astros as the 2017 World Series Champ with guess who on the cover – no other than Springer himself.

That coincidence has led to a spike in value for the Sports Illustrated issue with some selling for more than $300.

For those who are looking to bid on them, here’s a few more up for grabs with auctions ending in less than 24 hours.
