We talk about the 'tough man' sports this week - Football & Ulitimate Fighting or UFC. That's not to say that we leave all the other sports out, as we do talk about a few prospects that have done pretty well in the minors this season.
Chris Davis This guy was 2nd in AAA in batting average with a .327 AVG in 103 games. He has seen some time in the MLB this season - and you can find rookie cards of his in the 2006 Bowman Chrome Draft Baseball Set.
Hank Conger This guy goes way back on the show - as we've talked about him at various times over the years. He did get into 5 games this season in the MLB - but did well at AAA batting .300 for the season. He is only 23 in 2011 and it might be his time to make the majors from day 1. You can find his rookie cards in the Hank Conger Rookie RC Card Checklist.
Russ Mitchell This LA Dodgers player doesn't really have much on the market for cards - but did bat .315 in 103 games in AAA this year. He has some power and probably has a shot at the MLB team next season as he has spent time on the roster in 2010.
Reynaldo Rodriguez This Red Sox 1B got hot late in the season in A ball - and ended up batting .281 for the year. He doesn't have any cards on the market - however it possible he may be included in the upcoming 2010 Topps Pro Debut Series 2 Box.
Product Discussion2010 Topps UFC 4 This is a UFC product you should find just about everywhere including the retail level. It has many debut autographs including Tapout owners Punkass and SkyScrape. You will find just about every fighter that has made a recent appearance in the UFC - so its worth checking out if you are a fan of the octagon.
2010 Upper Deck UD NCAA Sweet Spot Football This product has seen some love from collectors that are given something other than on-card and sticker autographs. The familiar 'helmet' autographs feature signatures of most of the top NFL Draft Picks and a select number of former college and NFL greats. Barry Sanders, Dan Marino along with Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow autographs highlight this set. Boxes have been going up in price - and I believe its a no redemption product from Upper Deck.
2010 Topps Platinum Football Unlike Sweet Spot Football (which is hobby only) you will find this at the retail and hobby shops around the country. The hobby boxes deliver 3 RC autographs on average - and we'll be busting a box of this later this month!! A pretty simple set that reminds me of 2010 Topps Finest and 2010 Topps Chrome Football a little bit.
