Recommended Card: 2011 Topps Update #175
Trout is the best player in the game today. In 8 full Major League seasons he has been selected to 8 All-Star teams and won the AL MVP 3 times. If Trout continues his current trajectory, he will be included in the discussion of all-time greats of the game when he retires. Although it is pricy, if you can find a way to get one recommended card on this list, obtain the one on the left. Twenty years from now, it will be remembered as the iconic card of the era in much the same way Ken Griffey Jr.’s 1989 Upper Deck is today.
