Miguel Cabrera Rookie Drives 2000 Topps Traded Factory Set

12 Jul

While Miguel Cabrera continues to light up scoreboards and stat sheets across the nation, his performance has also has been lighting up the eyes of collectors! The 2000 Topps Traded Baseball set contains Miguel Cabrera’s rookie card, #T40. Pictured as a young infielder for the Florida Marlins, Cabrera was considered a hot prospect at the time of that card’s printing. Few could have predicted the tear he has been on at the plate for the past few seasons, though. After winning the AL triple crown in 2012 (the first player to do so since Carl Yastrzemski accomplished the feat in 1967), Miguel has been equally impressive in the 2013 campaign. At the time of this article, he leads two out of the three triple crown categories in the American League (.366 AVG, 94 RBI) and trails Chris Davis by only 4 home runs (34 to 30).

With Cabrera’s hot play at the dish, it is no wonder demand for his rookie card has spiked significantly. But the 2000 Topps Traded Factory set offers more than that. In addition to the 135 traded and rookie players showcased in the set, each set contains a randomly inserted autographed rookie card.

Brandon Phillips, Brandon Inge, Carlos Zambrano, Francisco Rodriguez, Michael Young, Adrian Gonzalez, and Adam Wainwright all also have rookie cards in the set. Larry Fritsch Cards currently lists the set for sale for under $100 but prices have been climbing quickly. Don’t miss your chance at one of the hottest items going right now!

50 Years Ago Today…

22 Jan

It was 50 years ago today that we moved to the 63 acre property that today is home to Larry Fritsch Cards. At that time in 1963 it was Larry doing this on a part-time basis, but proving our company’s longevity in the hobby, we have been in that same location for 50 years, 43 of them in business full-time. In those 50 years some things have changed and some remain the same. Things in the hobby have definitely evolved. It was bitterly cold that January day in 1963. Today in Stevens Point, Wisconsin the temperature is -12 degrees. Just like the cold temperatures that are sure to hit Wisconsin in January, we will also be here, year after year.

So as things continue to change, know that Larry Fritsch Cards will continue to be here, in the same place we have been for the past 50 years, to help serve you for all your collecting needs. Ithas been a great 50 years, and we will be here for you for another 50 more. Thank you.
