Is "Price" To Invest In David Going Up?
CNBC Sports Business Reporter
I'm going to admit it. I had never heard of David Price before I watched him close out the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night, pitching the Tampa Bay Rays into the World Series.
It was weird, to say the least. When was the last time a league championship was won by someone I had never heard of. Um, how about never? But it's the perfect American League ending for the team that everyone, including Vegas, doubted.
In case you didn't know, Price is the 23-year-old, 2007 first overall draft pick who made his 12th big league appearance on Sunday night.
With Price sealing the deal against the defending World Champions, many are trying to find out if now is the time to invest in Price.
Given the grandness of the stage he was on--13.4 million viewers watched Game 7 on TBS, making it the most-watched baseball game in cable history--the buy-in on Price isn't cheap.
One of Price's Bowman Chrome auto rookie cards sold for $305 last night and a signed ball went for $71. I guess you would have been better off buying his card or autograph on Saturday night.
