I often do searches on ebay for Reds Rookie cards and in the past was able to pick up young Rookies very cheap, but Eric Owens, Darron Ingram, Steve Smitherman, Kenny Kelly, Greg "Toe" Nash, Curt Lyons, Ty Howington, Chris Gruler and so on aren't exactly in the same class as what is there now. Johnny Cueto, Volquez, Bailey, Bruce, Votto, Lotzkar, Merosco, and a few others are making the Reds farm a popular place to try and look for the next great rookie to make a few bucks on.
The thing I'm most intrigued with is that when A-Rod was drafted his stuff went through the roof and after a couple years it tanked. It tanked to the degree I was at a card show and was able to trade a 95 Zenith Kordell Stewart "Slash" card for a Alex Rodriguez 94 UD SP straight up. If you were to make that offer today you would be promptly bitch slapped and escorted out of the room. My point is Bailey is having that same trend, but so did David Nied and Brien Taylor. So I'm hoping Mr. Bailey is able to harness his fastball and curve and add a change to things and hopefully he'll amount to more than just a card to stick into the spokes of my "retired" bicycle.
