My 10 Favorite Card Purchases of 2011: Number 9

Card #9 on my list is a 2011 Bowman Chrome Matt Moore Prospect Autograph graded BGS 9.5. I’ve got a couple of these and would love to have more. I actually pulled one from a pack too, but it wasn’t in good enough shape to send off to BGS. This card has 9.5 subgrades across the board and a 10 for the autograph grade.

Moore was the #2 prospect in Baseball America’s Rays Top 10 prospects list in 2011. He holds the top spot in 2012. He burst onto the scene late last season when the Rays made him a September call-up. He only pitched 9.1 innings in the regular season, but had 15 strikeouts and a respectable 2.89 ERA. He went 10 innings in the playoffs with 8 strikeouts and an absurd 0.90 ERA.

Moore will certainly make the Rays out of spring training this year. I cannot think of many better investments in the baseball card market right now, certainly not from a pitching standpoint. Look for big things out of him in 2012.
