A big congrats to Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim first baseman Albert Pujols for hitting his 600th homerun – and that he punctuated the grand occasion with a grand slam.

There’s no dispute that when the time comes, Albert Pujols will be a hall-of-famer.
He continued to add to his impressive career statistics with his multi-RBI game last night, which put him in sole possession of 11th place according to the Elias Sports Bureau, passing the great Carl Yastrzemski.
Pujols is only 14 RBIs away from passing Mel Ott and four homeruns shy of hitting the 600 mark. Although not as dominant as he once was in the peak of his 17-year career, Pujols still has some game to him.
Not sure how many more accolades Pujols can rack up before he calls it quits, but his 2001 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie card already has great value.

2: Mike Trout 2009 Bowman Chrome Auto $2,350
We’ve reached the #2 spot, and the runner up in our countdown of the most valuable Bowman Chrome cards is Mike Trout’s 1st prospect auto card from 2009.
We have also reached the elite tier of Bowman Chrome cards to invest in, as you’ll notice that Trout’s card is currently selling for more than double of what the No 3 card on our list (Kris Bryant’s 2013 auto) is currently selling for.
However, considering that we are talking about arguably the best player in the game today, and a player who some are calling the second coming of Willie Mays, I would say that he has deserved all the attention he’s received from the collecting industry.
