Astros Jose Altuve is doing something this month that no player has for 105 seasons – except for Ty Cobb
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve deserves more respect for something he’s done so far in July that no other player has accomplished for the past 105 seasons (except the great Ty Cobb) – hit over .500 this month to date.
Much has been said about Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve’s small stature, standing at just five-foot six-inches.
But anyone who follows baseball knows there’s more discussion these days on what he’s doing on the field.
One article notes Altuve is on his way to the Hall of Fame if he continues his dominating performance as he has shown the past three seasons.

What’s not to like this season about Jose Altuve who might be small-in-stature but plays like a true big leaguer when he’s at the plate and on the field. High average, fast, has some pop in the bat and solid defensively.
Yet his rookie cards come at a great value.
It might be a good time to invest now as he looks to pad his career stats. Here are our favorite Altuve rookie cards.

Unlike many top prospect cards today, Altuve’s never came with an autograph, which keeps the value of this card from climbing higher than it could have.
And since it’s considered an insert, this card isn’t technically a rookie card but many collectors will treat it as such.
It’s still a nice card to have for an Altuve fan as it’s his first card in a Houston Astros’ uniform. Plus there are plenty of refractors available, which have considerably higher value.
