Question: Stephen Strasburg, as you know, has taken baseball by storm and makes his debut this week against the Pirates. Do you think his cards are a good investment?
Answer: For those people who like to speculate and try to make money on modern rookie cards, Strasburg is certainly an intriguing player. The problem is that the expectations are so high for Strasburg, and for other prospects these days, that it is almost impossible for any of them to live up to the hype - no matter how well they perform. While Strasburg certainly seems like the real deal as a pitcher, the volatility of modern-era rookies can be risky because of the lofty expectations and chance of injury - which could later a pitcher's entire career.
