Stephen Strasburg - Circle Changeup



Stephen Strasburg and the magical circle change. The kid known as "the most hyped pick in MLB history" is coming through big time. Strasburg has opened the season 2-0 with 32K's in 3 appearances. Does he deserve a coach's selection for the All Star game? Check out our video discussing his first few starts this year.

Hey guys,
I know Topps is having a special promotion on the MCG site for people to win a Strasburg rookie, and the pic on the card is going to be from his debut,so I think his very first cards have just, or are just about to come out.But I'm not 100% on that so don't hold me to it.
Also,even though I was pretty young,I remember the hype around Gooden and Clemens being huge. My Dad actually brought me to 2 Clemens starts in '86.The first one was only a couple of starts after his 20 strikeout game! And with that...Happy Fathers Day Dad! And to all of our Dads,who I'm guessing for most of us is the person who started us in baseball.

The only card that I have and know of is his 2010 Bowman card, I'll send you guys a pic of it.

Saw Strasburg pitch here in Cleveland last week and he was very impressive. Got to see him from field level and the difference between his fast ball and his breaking stuff was knee buckling. He struck out 8 Indians, though 4 were split between Jhonny Peralta and Russell Branyan so with the exchange rate that's really only about 1.25 ks....LOL

He has his first cards in 2010 Bowman. I just pulled a Bowman Chrome out of a blaster box I bought at Target. I was psyched! I'm pretty sure he is slated to be in the rest of the 2010 releases from Topps.

You can find Strasburg autographs in 2008 Timeline, Sweet Spot, and 2009 USA Baseball all by Upper Deck and the Bowman line also

great episode!!!!!!! and MIKE LEAKE r u forgetting about him???? WOW what a great rookie pitcher and never pitched a pitch in the minors... and he should have a better record but u know how the reds are, and coco cordero leake should have at least 8-10 wins by now

Sounds like there are a few Strasburg cards out there. I hope we open one up soon so we can give it away to you all! I still can't believe that Strasburg auto card went for a million dollars on ebay!
