Does John Stockton = Mike Trout
1) both are awesome players
2) both have never won a championship
Stockton is probably one the top 25 players of all-time. Trout isn't quite that high yet, but has great stats.
However, as far as value and speculation, Trout runs circles around Stockton. Trout's rookies have sold for over a million dollars.
Stockton's rookie might sale for $500 - $750.
I find the basketball-baseball comparison interesting and confusing. Lebron, Kobe, and Michael cards sale for unbelievable prices. Maybe only being surpassed by Mickey Mantle cards. But a card like Stockton gets hammered by his baseball counterpart Trout. it's like comparing a Cal Ripken 1982 topps psa 10 vs a 1982 Topps psa 10 Bob Dernier or maybe worse.
More questions than answers.
