MLB Bullets is collecting baseball cards

Apparently they might be worth something!

Look, I think we all know that a rare, high-quality rookie card can be a valuable thing, but I think if you’re anything like me you assumed it would have to be one for a long-dead baseball legend like Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb.

Not so much! And now might be the time to start collecting those Topps packs again, because a Mike Trout rookie card just sold for $900,000 at auction, according to an article by Chris Bengel. Yes, you read that right. A card for a still-active player in his prime sold for nearly one million dollars.

BRB need to go order some baseball cards.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
