Default If Miggy gets the triple crown again this season, his topps traded rookie auto will..

What will happen? $2k raw? Gems $6k?

You are witnessing greatness enjoy it, doesn't come around often. Should top 2k easy, dumb people are paying that kinda money on prospects who MIGHT make he has been consistent for 10 years

Way undervalued card in comparison to many, what would you rather have right now a 2001 bowman chrome Pujols or a 2000 miggy auto what still has upside?

Still living in the PED era, I get real nervous about sinking that kind of money into anyone currently playing.

Honestly I don't see it moving. It's very likely he will get the triple crown, and I don't think anyone will be surprised.

I think if he wins the triple crown again this year his cards could see a little spike. Maybe like 1200-1400 Raw. Maybe like 1400-1500 for like A BGS 9/10. I think if he wins the triple crown and the Tigers win the World Series then his prices could go insane.

Triple Crowns and MVP's and Cy Young's are cool, but a World Series is better on the resume.

I think if he gets another triple crown he will automatically get appointed President of the United States, move the White House to Detroit, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown will be renamed the Hall of Cabrera.

As for his cards, you make the mistake that cards are valued based on compiled carrer stats. They aren't. They are based on speculation and whimsy.

Citizenship isn't the bar, being a "natural-born citizen" is. But it doesn't matter. He gets full rewrite power over the Constitution if he gets another triple crown so he can just change the requirement to being a natural-born Venezuelan. And his Topps Traded RC will still be below $1500. Until he gets the Federal Reserve to buy them all up and re-issue them as $100,000 T-bills.

FWIW, in case some people forgot, he does have a World Series Win (Marlins) and 2 World Series losses on his resume already!

The guy is at his peak. Whether he wins four more triples crowns or zero, he is playing about as good as the game can be played. Generally buying things at their peak isn't a smart investment idea.

Unless he makes a run at 74 Homeruns or .400 BA I don't think he can do much to cause another spike.

Ummm...what?!?!?! Please tell me you're kidding.

ONLY 13 people in history have won a Triple Crown, and you think a WS ring is better? I'm not sure that makes sense.

And, as someone already said, he does have a WS title. So did 24 other players that year...how many of them can you name?

I just got Livan right but the team I'm talking about is the 97 one, no Cabrera then.
