Mike Trout MLB Debut Jersey Expected to Net Over $1 Million

It doesn’t get much better in baseball than Mike Trout, and in collectibles, it doesn’t get much better than a game-worn jersey from a legend’s first game. 

The online auction house, Lelands, will be offering just that with Mike Trout’s Anaheim Angels from his MLB debut up for bidding through April 2. Trout debuted for the Angles in 2011 at the age of 19, going 0-2 in that game but has since been one of the best players in baseball history. 

When it comes to modern collecting, Mike Trout is the most coveted name in the sport. His 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Superfractor sold for $3.93 million last year, and his 2011 Topps rookie base is selling for over $5,000 as a PSA 10. 

Lelands expects the jersey, which is the same threads Trout is wearing in his 2011 Topps rookie card, to push upwards of $1 million in April’s auction. Trout is on his way to being one of the best to play the game and probably already punched his ticket to the hall-of-fame at just 29 years-old. 

Is Mike Trout’s jersey truly worth SEVEN FIGURES? We will find out on April 2nd.
