With the Baltimore Orioles tanking this season, there’s already talks of trading some of their better players to rebuild for future seasons.
Arguably the Orioles’ biggest trade bait is their shortstop Manny Machado. And rumors are already swirling about Machado going to their American League East rivals, the Boston Red Sox.
If that happens, for Machado card collectors, that would presumably be good for the card’s value (assuming he continues to play at a top level). Players going from small market teams to larger and more historic ball clubs build a higher profile and subsequently more demand would be there for their cards.
