Chasing a minor leaguer
I know card companies need checklists ahead of time and we always wonder why someone is left off, but here is a case where a player, who many thought would stay with the club despite struggling, is in a set. Kouzmanoff was included in 2011 Allen and Ginter.
A short-print, no less.
I got the base card, a mini or two floating around.
But what am I supposed to do about this? The wood card.
I don't even remember what I paid for one of the 1/1 wood cards last year - for some reason he had two - but I remember it being expensive. And, oh yeah, the card isn't even wood.
Kouz is still my boy. I love that he's doing well in the minors and hopefully a team that is in need of a third baseman will trade for him soon. But how much money do I want to shell out for a minor leaguer who is not a prospect?
