On the other hand, I've enjoyed watching Christian Yelich light up pitchers the past few weeks. He's one of the hottest hitters in June.
Over the past ten days, he's raised his average from .306 to .340 by collecting a hit in eight straight games. He currently leads the MLB in home runs, slugging percentage, and WAR. Plus he's in the Top 10 in almost every other offensive category out there.
As expected... Yelich's cards have heated up as well. Back in March I decided to add his 1st Bowman card to my collection:
2010 Bowman Draft #BDPP78
Prices were already inflated after his MVP season, but I figured I'd grab a graded copy while they were still affordable.
I'm glad I did, because recent listings have closed for nearly double the price I paid. I realize this card's value will rise and fall depending on Yelich's numbers. But this is one time when I don't mind something being too hot.
Today's question of the day...
What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?
Hopefully it's more comfortable than here in the Bay Area. Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
2011 Upper Deck MLS #198
Speaking of smokin' hot... did anyone watch Alex Morgan score five goals against Thailand earlier today in the group stage of the 2019 Women's World Cup? Last week or the week before I showed off some Japanese Eye Candy. Morgan is Californian Eye Candy.
