In the annual referendum on the player or players who the Cardinals' organization expects to be in the most demand at Winter Warm-up for autographs, the message is clear. Rookie Michael Wacha is $5 shy of a Hall of Famer. Wacha, the National League championship series MVP and a sensation in October, has been assigned a price tag of $70, according to the costs released by the club this afternoon. Tickets for individual autographs at the annual Winter Warm-up go on sale Monday at 9 a.m. St. Louis time at cardinals.com/winterwarmup. All proceeds go to charity. An autograph from rookie Shelby Miller, who won 15 games and finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting, can be had for $25. Wacha's spike in price puts him just shy of the $75 tickets for Ozzie Smith's pre-signed baseballs, Tony La Russa, Red Schoendienst, and Whitey Herzog. All four are Hall of Famers. Matt Holliday's autograph price is $75.
Cards assign prices for Wacha ... er, Winter Warm-up
