New Arrival: Jose Altuve, if, Houston Astros

resized_IMG_0002

Jose Altuve is probably my favorite player in the National League–I started following him in 2009 after his .302/.387/.838 season, and so it has been neat seeing him beat the odds to become once of the best infielders in the NL. He is having a really nice year in 2015, with a .296 AVG, .345 OBP and leading the league in stolen bases with 15.  I am pretty sure he is a shoe-in for his third All-Star game appearance.

There was a private signing with him a couple weeks ago, and I missed out on it. In retrospect, it was probably for the best. They were charging $60 a pop for flats. I am a big fan, but man, that is pricey. I was able to get this card for $8, and it is essentially what I would have gotten at the signing, only on a standard card and his shorter name. I figure he will be around awhile, so I will have a chance to upgrade to something nicer later.
