Soto to Yanks; bump in card prices?

Yankees gave up potentially way too much if not able to sign Soto to a multi-year contract. However usually you have to give up something to get something. Props for going for the NON free-agent Brass Ring.

Soto is 5 years younger and less mercurial than Ohtani and may take very nicely to the Yankee Stadium dimensions. If he does sign multi-year it could be the start of an era?

Please note - I have ZERO cards of all players mentioned in this post nor will I ever have any. I do not collect non-vintage cards and will not be. For those you that do have Soto cards a NYY bump should now be in place

Unless otherwise specified my posts represent only my opinion, not fact.

    I will be stunned if Yankees don’t have him for the next decade. Great move. Will be seeing Soto and the Yankees battle Ohtani and the Dodgers for a World Series or two.

    Really wish my Cubs would have traded for him. Incredible advantage to negotiate from a place he knows.

    I think his cards should go up after the trade.

    i am glad i got this card four years ago. i just wonder if soto will be with the yankees one year or more. he should have a good year with that short right field. just hope that soto keeps doing what he has been doing his first five years.

    Would greatly help prices if he can get off to a good start. And stay injury free. A good start may result in a bump up in interest.

    Hard to believe Juan Soto is the same Juan Soto from the World Series a few years ago. His upside is huge, but I think pitchers figured him out and his work ethic is a mystery. Still, I would want him on my team, but there is risk.

    Great pickup for sure, albeit only for a year. That lineup needs him badly. Someone that gets on base at an elite clip and also has power. Not sure how much the stadium will help him as his Home Runs are not pull heavy.

    Petco Park was a bad fit for him. If you take his road numbers and double them you have over a 1.000 OPS and close to 50 home runs last year.

    He is the same guy and still two years from his prime beginning.

    Correct!

    Right field in Yankees Stadiums allows for some cheap HRs, however it eliminates what are doubles in most parks as well as a lot of singles.

    Yankee Stadium since it opened in 2009 is the 5th worst hitters park in the game! As with most things these days the facts dont align with the haters narrative.

    Soto has four homers in seven career games at Yankee Stadium. I think he will be fine

    I was in the market for Soto this offseason hoping to grab on the cheap. Then this trade blew up that idea.

    But I live in a house of die hard Yankee fans and we all got our Soto jerseys ready to go! Was at NYC MLB store a few days ago with the family and the Soto hype is huge. I am fired up for our 2023 season and I think his performance and choice of team will definitely propel prices.

    Tom,
    If you still own that lineup of Soto autos that is freakin INSANE! Just ridiculously awesome.
