Future Watch: Trevor Story Baseball Rookie Cards, Rockies – We know it’s cliche, but what a remarkable story! Trevor Story was a relatively unknown baseball player a few weeks ago. He was one of two first round picks of the Colorado Rockies back in 2011 (compensatory). However, since that time he has been working his way up from Class A. He reached AAA last year and an invite to training camp this season. He performed well enough for the big club to start the season.
The 6′-1″ infielder is currently playing shortstop. He always had power but nothing all-world. In 2015 he had 20 home runs with two teams. A nice year but still nothing that you’d write home about.
The talented rookie started out this season like a house on fire. In his first six games he hit seven home runs. He also managed 12 RBI during that torrid start. He’s since had a slight cool down but he’s had an amazing first couple of weeks.
While in Irving High School, the freshman really wanted to play on the varsity team with his brother but the coach denied his request. Many times it takes a moment like this for a player to get that permanent chip on their shoulder. Sometimes that can lead to amazing success down the road. One thing his high school coach has mentioned this week is that “the kid showed great power back then”.
Trevor Story’s first MLB licensed autographed baseball card debuted in 2011 Bowman Chrome Baseball, card number BCAP-TS. You won’t be able to find one under $80 if you purchase it as a single.
Story currently has no baseball cards in any 2016 Topps products. You can be assured that will change soon.
Here’s a look at his 2016 homers:
According to his MLB.com draft profile:
Story has the best bat speed in the Rockies system, which helps him deliver solid pop. His power tool is greater than his hit tool right now, but he has started to make changes to his approach, cutting down on his aggressiveness at the plate some, giving him the chance to be an average hitter as well.
His time is now!
