With Tiger Woods stealing all the hype due to his phenomenal season, Phil Mickelson has been lost under the radar.
Phil is probably used to this as he has always followed closely in Tiger’s shadow, but coming into the Masters, let’s remember who has won two of the four Masters tourneys.
That is Phil Mickelson.
Now Phil will always be second best unti he can’t perform anymore. But, his cards will be still be a hot seller. He won’t command $16,000 for an autograph like Tiger does, but a card like the one above will still put you back around $200-$400.
With the passing of National Baseball Card, many collectors have a new set of cards, including Yankees prospect Ian Kennedy.
The Yanks are heavily relying on their young rotation to help them to their first World Series since 2003.
However, Kennedy’s first outing of 2008 didn’t look so stellar. He allowed six earned runs on four hits and four walks over 2 1/3 innings in a 13-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
This is just one game though and collectors aren’t going to stop demanding his stuff just because he had one bad day.
