|In 1998 Albert Pujols was playing High School Baseball for the Fort Osage Indians. A local newspaper took a snapshot of the future MLB Baseball Super-Star not knowing it would be used for a baseball card more than a decade later.
When Donruss announced that these cards would be included in this years 2009 release of Elite Extra Edition EEE Baseball Albert Pujols fans all added a new must have card for 2010. The fact that Panini took the extra step and inserted Twenty (20) Autograph Versions of this card will make this one of the hottest Albert Pujols cards before Topps starts rolling out 2010 cards.
Luckily there will be a non-autograph version for those not making the big bucks. But expect to pay hundreds of dollars for the autograph versions which are limited to #/20

|One of the most intriguing cards to make it into 2009 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Baseball will be the Aroldis Chapman Autograph Card #150. These ‘Rookie Cards’ will be a baseball prospectors dream considering Chapman defected from Cuba in 2009 and signed with the Cincinnati Reds in 2010.
Aroldis Chapman is considered one of the brightest young prospects not signed or drafted by an MLB ball club. Some rank him right up there with Stephen Strasburg and other top MLB Pitching Prospects. It remains to be seen but the hype is behind this kid and that means big bucks for his trading cards. In fact Aroldis already has some non-autographed Rookie cards on eBay that sell for decent money even for a player not in the Major Legues.
We will see how fast this young left hander will make his way through the Cincinnati Reds minor league system. Expect collectors to pay good money for his Donruss Elite EEE #150 Autograph RC on eBay and in collector circles. It will be his first certified autograph card which will help it hold value (and possibly go up) if/when he plays in the MLB.
