Rookie Cards

Fans and collectors of the Houston Astros have longed for a contending team with young stars to lead them into the future. Although the team has still not been able to string together many wins, they are building their pool of young talent. Top prospects include shortstop, Carlos Correa, first baseman, Jonathan Singleton, and outfielder, George Springer. While Correa might get most of the publicity, George Springer has been doing plenty to boost his profile. High expectations and some great productivity have placed George Springer cards among the hottest in the hobby.

George Springer attended college and played baseball at the University of Connecticut. He spent three years at UConn and enjoyed early success as he was named to the 2009 Baseball America Freshman All-America First Team. After a stellar junior year, Springer was named 2011 Big East Player of the Year, and was selected a 2011 First Team All-American by several publications. His success in college and tremendous potential resulted in the Houston Astros selecting George Springer 11th overall in the 2011 MLB Draft.

Since he was drafted, Springer has quickly progressed through the minor league system for Astros, showcasing speed and power along the way. After a good 2012, Springer put forth a great 2013. As a member of Double-A Corpus Christi, Springer put up 19 home runs, stole 23 bases and batted .297 in 73 games. This strong play resulted in a promotion to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where Springer built on those numbers with 21 home runs and 26 stolen bases in 75 games during 2013 and 2014.

After starting the 2014 season with Oklahoma City, those who invested early got their wish in mid-April of the 2014 season when George Springer was called up and made his Major League debut. As a result, he's now got rookie cards. In addition to the rookies shown below, there are plenty of inserts, including autographs, in 2014 products.
