I have written to Robertson a couple times, and last year finally got a return…but the autograph on my sweet spot card was faded (he used an old sharpie), so I have been looking for an upgrade for a while. This does nicely. Its his rookie card, but I bought it just before the trade, so I think I spent a little less than I would now. Prospectors are just the worst.
I am bummed that he was traded, but after the A’s acquired IF Franklin Barreto from the Blue Jays they could afford to move some of their upper level talent to upgrade the major league roster. Still, losing guys like Robertson and IF Addison Russell is never fun for an organization.
Robertson is one of my favorite players in the minors. He mostly plays shortstop, hits for power and walks a ton. In 2014 he had a breakout of sorts in High-A, and if he keeps up next season in AA I think he will be at the top of most peoples prospect lists come 2016.
