Such a amazing ball player.
+1 on the assessment of Trout as a player, as things now stand. However, caveat emptor should an electronic umpire for balls and strikes be adopted, as has been discussed. Even though umps know or have been advised that the high fastball is the pitcher's defense against these "launch angle," low average, high strikeout guys with good homer totals,and are calling the high strike more often, they still do not consistently call it anywhere near the top of the zone. Trout is cumulatively hitting .213 on pitches in the upper third of the strike zone. Since he is well aware of his difficulties with good fastballs 3-5" above the belt, his solution thus far has been to lay off them. But that won't cut it with an electronic ump, as these pitches are clearly strikes.

Best of luck to you in your collecting,

Larry

Do you yave any examples of this? I do know the Mark Mcquire Modesto A's was reprinted after that historic year when he and Sosa were having the HR battle. Just curious what else has been duplicated from the original print plate. That is true you have to be concerned with that. I don't want to get this confused with reprints which are not authorized and you can tell a difference. The 80 Ripken, and 92 Jeter comes to mind. There are differences to tell them apart.

This is why I like the Trout Perfect Game card as having the logo on it. You don't see many if them and to my knowledge there has never been another print run. Hopefully the plate has been smashed or bleached washed lol

The Modesto McGwire and one minor league Mattingly are among those I remember having been reprinted. I think the McGwire original run was 250 or so. Once he started hitting tons of homers and becoming Bunyonesque, they were literally everywhere.

Good luck on your collecting. I too have many Griffey minor league cards, as well as Frank Thomas.

Best wishes,

Larry
