I recently put together two-thirds of a Paul Konerko sports card trifecta for $2.75. If you follow baseball, then you've heard of Konerko. He's a fifteen year veteran, who has been an MLB all-star five times. Here's just a peek at some of his career accomplishments:
1994 First Round Draft Pick (13th - LA Dodgers)
1997 Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year Award
2004 Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year Award
2005 A.L.C.S. MVP Award
2005 World Series Champion
396 Home Runs (MLB Career)
.282 Batting Average (MLB Career)
9 Grand Slams (MLB Career)
Are you these Cooperstown worthy statistics? Probably not. But his career isn't over yet. He's still the captain of the White Sox, who's wrapping up another solid season at the plate. And best of all.. he's affordable.
Which athletes do you consider to be underrated & affordable?
Happy Tuesday everyone. Enjoy the rest of your week. Sayonara!
