Card of the Day: 2007 Bowman Heritage Joba Chamberlain
One of the biggest stories of spring training is where Joba Chamberlain will start the season for the Yankees.
So far most known for being "attacked" by bugs in the playoffs against Cleveland, Chamberlain is expected to be a big part of the Yankees rotation for years to come.
But speaking of Cleveland, that is what they thought about Jaret Wright after he pitched well in his first playoffs. And we all know how that went.
Nervertheless, Chamberlain's cards are some of the hottest on the market right now. I made a trade for a couple and sold them less than 30 minutes after I received them. His autographs are selling for $75+ on eBay on a regular basis. Even base rookies like the Bowman Heritage are popular among collectors.
