Best surprise card of the year

SDS

For me it has to be Larry Walker. You know babe and Griffey, etc will be elite but going in to the year Larry walker wasn’t even a card I would ever have thought about. He has never left my lineup. He is almost a perfect card. I have Trout, Mantle, and walker in my outfield and I’m assuming mays will bump him but I’m not even sure that will happen. Based on having no expectations for the card he is definitely my mvp for 2020.

Def took me by surprise.

SDS

Jimmy Rollins. I’ve been raking with him. Probably my favorite lead off(I’m not a huge fan of Cobb- replaced him with 99 Yelich and just waiting for 99 Griffey)

SDS

John Smoltz, I was really surprised they only gave him 5 cards. Definitely deserved at least 12.

SDS

Walker, Sandoval (Criminaly underrated card) and Lou Brock (the fact that they gave him a bit of power makes him a very dangerous option and I love speed + sneaky power)

SDS

Silver Slugger Daniel Murphy. I used my CAP at 2B for quite a while until someone in Discord chat said Murph was sneaky good. I picked him up when he was around 20k I think, and he hasn't left my lineup since. Batting .370 with him with almost a 1.200 OPS in well over 500 ABs. He's easily the best value I have gotten out of a card all year.

SDS

Prime Matt Kemp has been a beast for me, I decided to go after Mantle today and that’s the only reason he will leave my Starting Lineup
