Nick Markakis

Nick Markakis was a guy I wanted the Mets to pick up a long time ago.He's a disciplined hitter who churns out more doubles than a lady pregnant with twins,twice.I wanted to gobble up all of his rookie cards back in '06 and '07 but at the time ,the price tag on most of his XRC were through the roof.Well,not so much through the roof,maybe like 20 bucks a pop.But still,that's a lot to be paying for a single card I think.Since then,Markakis has suffered from a recent power outage ,failing to reach double digits In home runs In over 650 plate appearances last year ,and has only 2 going into today.He's still a solid hitter and outfielder to boot,but as a result of his more down to earth numbers,his card prices have plummeted. Looks like I'm finally going to be able to pick up that '03 Upper Deck Prospect Premiers after all ;) As of now,these are the only Markakisissiz that I own.

I'm really digging the beard , though.
