    2011 Topps Update Mike Trout Rookie #US175 BGS Black Label Pristine 10. The greatest ballplayer that ever lived? It's still a bit early to make such a bold declaration, but unless this supremely talented youngster stumbles from his current trajectory, that distinction could very well become his legacy. The ultimate five-tool player, Trout has slugged in the top four for the American League in each of his nine Big League campaigns, and, at .565 for his career, is north of some names that may sound familiar--Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, etc.

    He'd run away with the American League Rookie of the Year voting upon hitting the rookie minimum in 2012, and nearly capture the MVP Award that same year, but the nineteen-year old phenom was batting just .220 with five home runs in forty games by the time the 2011 season from which this spectacular card derives was complete. Who could have possibly imagined that he'd be a three-time MVP and eight-time All-Star by the time the decade was over?

    Just like the rising megastar whose arrival it heralds, the presented trading card is unsurpassed in its quality, earning perfect 10 subgrades for centering, edges, corners and surfaces from the experts at Beckett to claim the ultimate hallmark of hobby supremacy, the fabled "Black Label." If past is prologue, the Topps debut of the game's biggest star should be one of the safest investments in the sports collectibles marketplace. Gem Mint examples of Mickey Mantle's Topps rookie are now eight-figure treasures.
