Shelby Miller rookie cards are some of the hottest baseball cards in the hobby. Miller has been the lights-out starter the St. Louis Cardinals have been looking for.
Shelby Miller was selected in the first round of the 2009 MLB draft of the St. Louis Cardinals and the team always looked at him as a future ace.
While his career in professional ball had its share of adversity, Cardinals fans got a glimpse of what could be when he was called up to the big leagues in September 2012.
The Cardinals cautiously inserted Miller into the rotation as their fifth starter in 2013 and the 22-year-old right-hander has rewarded their faith with a 5-2 start over his first eight starts, pitching to a 1.40 ERA, with 57 strikeouts in just over 51 innings pitched.
Miller is a powerfully built 6’ 3” 195 pound workhorse who should work his way up towards the top of the Cardinals rotation.
