Zach Greinke Cards Continue To Skyrocket in Value
Prior to the start of the 2009 MLB Season Zach Greinke was not a name that illcited much excitement from baseball card and memorabilia collectors. Even after posting a sub 3.70 ERA in each of the last two seasons he remained under the radar, due in part to the fact that he played in one of the smallest media market in Major League Baseball.
Greinke's performance so far in 2009 has been nothing short of brilliant. He is currently sporting a 6-0 record with an anemic .40 ERA in 45 Inning of starting work. During this run he has posted a gaudy 54/8 SO/BB ratio and led his team to a 15-11 record and first place in the AL Central. Fans and collectors have taken notice of this 25-year-old flame throwing sensation, which has created a huge spike in demand for his baseball cards, memorabilia, and jerseys.
Greinke baseball cards have skyrocketed in value over the last month. Nowhere is this more apparent then on ebay. The hottest auction of them all is this 10-card lot of premium Zach Greinke rookie inserts which features two high grade PSA 2002 Bowman Chrome Gold Refractors, and four high grade PSA 2002 UD Prospect Premiers autographs. this auction - the mother of all Zach Greinke Lots.
Prior to this season this lot would have been unlikely to surpass the $100 - $200 range, especially given the current economic climate. Driven by the strength of Greinke's breakout performance this season, this lot has attracted almost 30 bidders and currently sits at an even $700.
Regardless of whether or not Greinke is able to maintain such a high level of performance, he has made a substantial hobby impact that is unlikely to be forgotten in the near future.
