On the last day of the regular season, the Yankees can once again celebrate the fact that they will be playing baseball in October. For the 13th straight year, the Yankees will take to the field in a quest to capture the World Series. While the Yankees go into the MLB Playoffs as one of the clear favorites, this was far from the case just a few short months ago. At the end of May, the team was a lousy 8 games below .500 in second last place in the AL East. But then, on came A-Rod!
In 158 games with the team this year, the Yankee third baseman had 183 hits, hit 54 home runs, drove in an incredible 156 runs, and batted an impressive .314. He single handedly took the Yankees on his back, and into October. So after a career season like this one - and with plenty of years still ahead of him - this may be an opportune time to buy Alex Rodriguez cards. More specifically, A-Rod's rookie card is still a steal on eBay but one would expect that to start climbing significantly as A-Rod gets further into his career. This may be a great time to get your hands on one of these cards - especially if A-Rod takes the Yanks all the way to the fall classic!
