Everyone knows about the tremendous first half of the 2017 season for New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge.
The hobby has probably overreacted a little with what people are willing to pay for some of his rookie cards (already in the five-figure territory).
In fact, we wrote about three cards we’d rather have for the same price of his Bowman Chrome base autographed card for roughly the same amount ($1,000).
Now this article on The Ringer website points out that Judge has become the worst player since the All-Star break. Could it be the home run derby curse?
Or could it be just a good ol’ regular slump? His .115 batting average is ugly and nine strikeouts in 26 at bats reminds of the old Judge late last season.
Surely, if this continues, a market correction on the value of his cards are in order. For those who have his cards, maybe it’s a good time to sell now at what could be the peak value.
Or again, maybe it is just a slump. And with the trade that brought in Todd Frazier and David Robertson to the Yankees, maybe Judge will get his bat going again leading this team to a World Series Championship berth.
If that happens, disregard this post.
