But then again, Babe Ruth played in the first half of the 20th century, and nobody disputes that he was the greatest player of the 1900s... so who knows...
You'd have to be Babe Ruth to unseat Trout. I don't see much wiggle room for being even better than he is.

Going all the way back to the first post and question: I think it is a really good value comparison to the 89 Upper Deck Griffey rookie.
Both were produced in high volume, both were graded in high volume, both have produced their share of PSA 10 (or equivalent).
The market has driven up and held Griffey rookie cards in the $400 plus range in a PSA 10.
The market has already priced that in on the Trout card.
You might argue that the Trout card is "easier" in PSA 10 but you might also argue that in 2019 Trout will be more popular than Griffey is at this snapshot in time. Even more Trout buyers/fans.
Therefore my estimate is that the current price levels for Trout will hold until something changes the narrative.
Downside risk? Injury,
Upside potential? Trout gets traded to an East Coast contender. Trout wins another MVP (or two), Trout eclipses Griffey type records.
