Question about Trout rookie cards

During his first call up in 2011, he did not hit well and was sent back down for a bit before being recalled again.

Matter of fact... I just found an old 2011 all star ballot and Trout is not listed (neither is Harper). So once again, 2011 Trout was still under the radar mid-season. I believe after the All Star game he started to tear things up and eventually became rookie of the year.
I still remember there was talk in 2012 about Trout gaining some weight in the off season and speculation that he would not be as fast on the base-paths or in the field ... and like so many ROY winners, the next year very few could fulfill the expectations. Boy, were they wrong.

I guess if I saved used tinfoil and used tea bags instead of old comic books and old baseball cards, the difference between a crazed hoarder and a savvy collector is in that inherent value.
