Not Yet a National: Michael Burgess


2007 Tristar Prospects Plus #26
Bio/Summary: Michael Burgess is a pretty cool prospect; picked as a sandwich pick in 07 due to having an off Senior year in high school, he’s done nothing but produce as a prospect (okay, that might be an exaggeration – last year was a bit off for him). But I think the guy has a great future; Baseball Prospectus’s seven year forecast for him puts him as a solid 20-hr guy for his career, but I’d think he’ll be higher, given his age.
How Did I Get It?: Won it on eBay auction.
Did You Know?: Burgess attended Hillsborough High School in Tampa, FL, the same school that produced Dwight Gooden and Gary Sheffield.
Rating: 6/10 – It only gets that high a rating because of the subject. These cards just aren’t that good – the pictures are too dark (made worse by the shiny background).
