Tim Lincecum’s dominance on the mound this season has resulted in many of his 2007 cards experiencing price jumps. He’s currently leading the majors in strikeouts and ranks among league leaders in WHIP and ERA. His 2007 Bowman Chrome Prospects #238 autograph has moved up from $100 to $120 in the past two months. His 2007 Bowman Sterling #TL and Bowman’s Best #93 rookie autographs also jump to $65. His 2007 UD Black rookie autograph #69 is one of his toughest rookies to find, serial numbered to only 99 and is one of his most attractive rookies. It jumps to $200 this month.
David Price was the #1 overall pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2007 Draft and hasn’t looked back. The 2007 Vanderbilt star was the College Player of the Year and he continues to dominate at every level in the minors. In his first 15 starts between Single-A and Double-A this season he hasn’t allowed more than three runs. In his first 91 innings pitched, he has 92 strikeouts, a miniscule 1.01 WHIP and a 1.87 ERA. If he’s not a factor for the Rays this season, fans and collectors should expect him to be with the Rays next year at the latest. Collectors are scooping up all of his key cards and they’re all on the rise. His 2007 Bowman Sterling Prospect Autograph #DPP jumps to $70 and his 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Signature Turn of the Century #5 autograph numbered to 500 rises to $75 this month among others.
