30-Day Baseball Card Challenge Day 21: Investment

While I never hoarded Mike Kelly's 1992 Upper Deck Rookie card, I did put a lot of stock in him. By stock, I mean hope- hope that he was going to be another Barry Bonds-type of impact player after being drafted 2nd overall in the '91 draft. The ASU alum had big-time power but also a propensity to swing and miss. Mike never panned out and I had a player collection that wouldn't have paid an overdue book fine, let alone my children's education.

  1. I remember pulling a Kelly hologram out of a pack of Upper Deck back in the day and feeling like I won the lottery. These days, I've seen it sitting in dime boxes on more than one occasion.
