Gary Sanchez Obak Auto

I’ve been wanting a Gary Sanchez autograph for a while. He’s one of the Yankees top prospect, and easily is best positioned to be the next Jesus Montero – aka power-hitting catcher who may not have a future as a catcher.

Sanchez has not responded to any of my TTM requests, so I decided to go the way of a certified auto. He only has a couple – a 2009 Bowman, and 2010 Elite Extra, and this 2010 Tristar Obak to name a few. This one was by far the most affordable, and it’s a nice card. Sure, it’s a sticker auto and sure, the signature is cut off a little. I’ve found that to be true for many Tristar autos.

I’m glad I got in front of this and picked up his auto, as I have a sneaky feeling the price of his cards are going to skyrocket in the next year or two.

  1. He played for my hometown Riverdogs last year and, accurately or not, got the reputation among the fans for being constantly hurt and overpaid. Given that's it's SC I think that issues of race and class had A LOT to do with what I heard in the stands, but I thought I'd throw that out there before anyone else picked it up. BJ Upton got hit with those labels early on and, to my consternation, they stuck.

    My two cents: he's a heck of a ballplayer under a lot of pressure to perform with that signing bonus. He looks AWESOME.
