Bogaerts Tracker 2018 - Into 57th Place!
Well, Xander got off to a hot start in 2018, as evidenced by the Topps NOW card above (the only one I've purchased so far this year). He spent some time on the DL a few weeks into the season though, and he's been good but not great since returning.
This post also gives me a good excuse to show off Vern's "rookie card" above. He actually began his career all the way back in 1941 with the St. Louis Browns, but due to the lack of sets released in that decade this is actually his RC strictly speaking. I landed this one many months (maybe even years) ago now, just never had a chance/cause to show it off. Beautiful card, I love the '49 Bowmans.
As promised, I'm going to show a nice new Bogaerts card each time he surpasses a new name on the list. Since this is the first post though, I've actually got two cards queued up, and they should be enough to make any Red Sox or Bogaerts collectors "green with envy" (sorry that was a terrible pun):
At current pace, Bogaerts should be able to jump up another couple of spots in the coming weeks, so I'm sure I'll be showing more Xander cardboard soon. Thanks for stopping by as always!
