While he is a great pitcher for sure, he’s just not the “it” guy like Trout, Kershaw, or Betts. But it’s a good time to stock up on his cards!
As for the relic cards, unless they’re one of the aforementioned 1st or RC cards, then they’re not really that “special”. Not that they’re valueless, but they won’t command the stratospherical prices the others will. And as for purple/orange/red numbered cards, conventional thinking is buy the lowest numbered card you can find. And 9/9.5/10 are really the only collector grades. If I’d spent a few hundred more on my ‘09 Trout rookie and gotten a 9.5 instead of a 9, it would be worth thousands more now. Live and learn.
