Jose Altuve

Astros scouts summarily dismissed Jose Altuve when he took part in an open tryout when he was a 16 because of his diminutive stature (he?s 5-foot-, six-inches tall). They?re also relieved he was determined to prove their initial assessment wrong. After convincing them to reevaluate his talent with a second tryout, the player who may end his career as the best hitter in franchise history was signed to a free agent contract for $15,000.

By hitting .327 over parts of five minor league seasons Altuve was called up to the Astros in 2011 and hit safely in his first seven games, finishing his rookie campaign with a respectable .276 average. Since then he?s led the Astros in hitting every year and is the only Houston player to hit over .300 since 2011. In 2014, he hit .341 and became the first player in franchise history to lead the league in hitting. Altuve followed that with a .313 effort and won his first Gold Glove and second straight Silver Slugger award.

Like other recent great hitters, Ichiro Suzuki and Tony Gwynn to name a two, Altuve is aggressive at the plate, but he is not a hacker; he has never come close to 100 strikeouts, and is on pace to lead the American League in hits for the third time. Make a valuable addition to your personal sports collection with the addition of genuine Jose Altuve collectibles. Consider it a wise investment as Altuve authentic autographed items increase in value as he begins to clime the career rankings.

At 26 years and 102 days old, Altuve reached 1,000 hits at a younger age than all but eight of the 30 members of the 3,000 hit club. The eight who were younger than Altuve at the time of their 1,000th hit are Ty Cobb, Al Kaline, Alex Rodriguez, Robin Yount, Hank Aaron, Tris Speaker, George Brett and Derek Jeter.
