Tigers' Cabrera cashing in on Triple Crown

The SportsXchange

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera will profit greatly from his Triple Crown season.

The third baseman signed a deal with autograph memorabilia firm Detroit City Sports to inscribe baseballs with the words "Triple Crown 2012," according to an ESPN.com report.

The signed balls have been listed at an introductory price of $275, but Detroit City Sports owner Steve Graus says the cost will rise north of $350 by Monday.

"We think it's a reasonable price based on the caliber of player that he is," Graus told ESPN. "I mean, this is the Triple Crown."

In addition to the ball, Cabrera will also sign 8-by-10 inch and 16-by-20 photos of him tipping his cap Wednesday night after pulling off the achievement for the first time since 1967.
