Jon Lester Bio-

The 2002 Upper Deck Prospect Premiers #12 Jon Lester XRC Boston Red Sox Rookie Card usually has a price around $25.

This southpaw was a three-time MVP and All-Star choice in high school, even being named the Gatorade State Player of the Year in 2000 for Washington State.  In 2002, he was a second round draft pick by the Boston Red Sox, paying him a $1 million signing bonus, the highest of any second round pick in the history of MLB.  Initially playing in the minors, he moved up through the ranks quickly, being named Pitcher of the Year for the Eastern League, the Red Sox Minor League Pitcher of the Year, and voted onto the All-Star team.  Then, both the Texas Rangers and the Florida Marlins wanted Lester included in trades but this was denied.

When the Red Sox team had a number of injured players in 2006, Lester was called to pitch his first professional MLB game in which he had a 4.76 ERA.  Thereafter, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, which was successfully treated, allowing him to get back to the Red Sox where he played in the 2007 World Series, pitching in game four for the series win.

In 2008, his performance continued to improve and in 2009, he signed a five-year contract to remain with the Red Sox.  While the start of the 2010 season was slow, he soon rocked games in which he pitched.
