  1. That makes sense, I feel the same way. I identified Jazz and Trevor the first week of the season as severely underrated. I grabbed a bunch of their cards. Unfortunately no super high-end Jazz ones before the prices went 🧨🧨🧨💥
  2. Rogers is a monster. I think it’s time for me to sell his rookie card auto refractor. It’s hard for him to have more upside unless he makes it to and stays in the Kershaw, Scherzer, etc. type of tier
  3. I would have thought so. I can’t quite crack why his cards aren’t going through the roof. They’re a good bit under Acuña and Soto cards right, it seems. Aaron Judge cards have fallen off, but so has his production. Ohtani is a bit of a mystery to me.
  4. Would that mean you’re “swinging” for the fences?
  5. I got $575 for the Pujols card 🙀
  6. 🧹🧹🧹🧹🧹 🙌🙌🙌🙌
  7. Grading is INSANE right now. $50-$75 per card, waiting 1-6+ months. It may be a good time to sell, either now or when he retires. Otherwise, might as well wait until his HOF induction.
  8. I’m really excited about this listing I just put up: 2001 Topps Traded Pujols RC BCCG 10 If you are ever interested in one of my cards, just let me know. I’d rather deal with one of y’all.
  9. Hopefully the first of many honors. I bought a few really nice cards of his 2-3 weeks ago. Now I have to decide whether to hold or sell!
  10. Fan-bleeping-tastic. Feeling very happy I invested in some Jazz Chisholm and Trevor Rogers cards.
  11. Great topic, thanks for it. Reading everyone's responses has more and more memories pop up. I'll start a some honorable mentions: 2003 World Series, Game 4. Alex Gonzalez hits a walk-off homer in extras. I don't remember seeing the swing, but I distinctly remember watching the ball fly over the left field wall. Man, oh man. A September 2003 home game versus the Phillies. Probably THIS ONE. After the win, all the fans were chanting and screaming on our way out of the stadium. "LET'S GO, MARLINS!" Roy Halladay's Perfect Game. I don't think I could bring myself to applaud for him, but it was incredible to watch. And JJ threw a gem as well. I have to pick 2 all-time favorites: It's my birthday circa 1996. I forgot my lunch, and so I had to charge a ham and cheese sandwich at the cafeteria. I was embarrassed that I forgot my lunch, and I didn't really want the sandwich. Suddenly, the cafeteria doors burst open. It's my dad! He says, "I'm taking you to the Marlins Spring Training game for your birthday." 😭 Sometime between 1998-2001. I bring a Jesus Sanchez card over to the bullpen and ask for a signature. He thinks the card is so cool that he shows it to everyone in the bullpen, signs it, and gives it back to me. It's a Bowman International parallel with a map of his home country in the background. The card is also entirely in his native language, Spanish. I felt SO special that day.
  12. It’s not emotional to say he’d been sucking at hitting until the last couple of games. You could argue it was too small a small sample size.
  13. I got a 2021 Topps pack, one of the big ones with 65 cards, the other day. I pulled a numbered Topps all star rookie. I didn’t think much of it. Turns out it’s selling for ~$75! It’s Alec Bohm, # out of 499. I also bought some really cool Marins cards recently. When they come in the mail, I’ll share pics here. I think y’all will enjoy 😀
  14. P.S. How did Berti get good? He pretty much sucked in the minors until he got to the Marlins. And he’s 31, so that’s rather late to bloom.
  15. Berti’s catch was UNBELIEVABLE. One of the best I’ve seen. I am a Berti fan boi. Great efforts all 4 games. Fun series. Gotta love the result, taking 3/4 from a team that took the Dodgers 7 games last year. Rogers has star potential. This rotation looks scarier good and scarier good over time. Sandy, Rogers, Cabrera, Sixto, Meyer all with stuff to be #1s or #2s in this league. And then you’ve got Pablo, Elieser, Castano, Neidert, and Garrett. Hot diggity. Maybe Elieser becomes an ace closer or something.
  16. Floro really earned this jam. Bad pitch to Enciarte 0-2. No comment on Acuña lol. Lost Freeman after 1-2, I believe. Freeman made him work.
  17. I think that’s a little much. He’s still a fantastic fielder and takes walks. But I may not mind having Berti get regular starts at any of 3B, 2B, and SS. EDIT: fantastic “fielder,” not hitter.
  18. Love that guy. Terrific win. No matter what happens today, this was a helluva series for the Fish. With Rogers on the mound, you’ve got a real shot at the 🧹🧹🧹
  19. Garbage. This team keeps getting screwed by the umps. A miracle that Alfaro hit the ball well 😅
  20. Wooooooo Chiseled Chisholm! What a friekin catch by Duvall.
  21. I gave Jorge a new nickname... Alfar-0 and 2
