Visit our Daily Auctions page to see the latest sports card deals on auction ending daily! And listen to our podcast Cards To The Moon!

It’s hard to believe after all the accomplishments Mike Trout has achieved so far in his career, leading some to heap high praise such as labeling him “the god of WAR”, Trout only turned 27 on Aug. 7.
If he continues at his pace, he could arguably be the best player many fans have ever seen play the game.
So today, we acknowledge Trout on his birthday with some of the best high-end  autograph cards (both rookie and non-rookie) below that are currently up for sale on eBay.
Here’s to continued success for Trout and for any lucky collector holding on to his cards where Trout’s full potential (and thus peak card value) has yet to be reached.
