Incredible, isn’t it? Of course, Sanchez had dealt with injuries during that time but on a per plate basis, he’s hit the same average number of home runs.
So perhaps while Judge’s rookie cards are still a bit inflated by hype, there might be a good buying opportunity for Sanchez’s 2010 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie card.
Here’s an ungraded Gold Refractor of that card numbered to 50 currently going for $1,749.
A BGS Graded 9.5/10 Gold Refractor card is currently on sale here for $6,000.
Contrast that to an Aaron Judge 2013 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor autographed card (BGS Graded 9.5/10), which costs $10,990 (click link to see posting on eBay).
