Hello Mr. Schafer

Well the Phillies lost their season opener last night to the Braves 4-1. ¬†I guess my dream of them winning 162 games is out the window ūüôā ¬†The Phillies have lost 8 out of their last 9 season openers. ¬†The Braves played really well and their rookie Jordan Schafer sure had a great game. ¬†Schafer became the 99th player in MLB history to hit a homer during his first at bat. ¬†As you can imagine his cards have started to really take off in price. ¬†Before the game his stuff was selling well, but now its even better. ¬†Schafer’s most popular prospect cards come from the already notable 2005 Bowman Chrome Draft set. ¬†Recently he has been featured in Donruss’s 2008 Threads set. ¬†
