Chris Davis is this year’s comeback player of the year. His numbers at the All-Star break are simply something you will only find in a video game. Davis has 37 homers, 94 RBI and is hitting .312 and he is only a little more than half way through the young season.
These incredible numbers have collectors sifting through boxes looking for Chris Davis rookie cards that they discarded or cast aside from their collections. His rookies have been steadily going up but many collectors want to know if he is a one year wonder or will this rampage continue for season to come.
We think now is a good time to jump in and start buying Chris Davis rookie cards and autographs. Here is why.
They are Cheap
Most of Chris Davis’s best rookie cards are still very cheap. They can be purchased for less than $10 while autographed versions of his rookie are under $100. If he continues to slug home runs his cards will double if not triple in value as demand picks up.
They have a Ton of Upside
Many people may have forgotten what type of prospect Chris Davis was in the Rangers organization. The Hulk-like slugger was the top prospect in the Rangers farm system only a few years ago. He always had immense power but he always needed a lot of work when it came to plate discipline. His .312 average and amazing opposite field power show he has figured things out at the plate.
If he continues on this torrid pace he will be in the hunt for a Triple Crown title. We have already seen what a Triple Crown does for a players rookie cards. Just look at Miguel Cabrera’s baseball cards just last year after he won the crown.
The Orioles, under manager Buck Showalter are on the brink of big things in the AL East. The Orioles have a great young staff with players like Dylan Bundy, Chris Tillman and Wei-Yin Chen. They also have some hitters that will compliment Davis in the lineup with young prospects like, Manny Machado and budding superstar Adam Jones.
With all this talent the Orioles are bound for greatness. All these elements will help Davis add to his amazing numbers.
Davis is just Getting Started
Now that Davis has found his swing, and is surrounded by unbelievable talent, you will see his stats just get better and better. With some power hitters it is just a matter of getting the at-bats needed to figure out how to conquer Major League pitching. It looks like Chris has finally figured things out.
