Voting for the 2013 American League MVP was a horse race between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout, and though Triple Crown winner Cabrera eventually collected the honor, we advanced stats geeks believed Trout was the rightful MVP. A year later, the Angels outfielder is the AL MVP in a unanimous decision, having led the league this season in runs (for the third year in a row), RBI, total bases and Wins Above Replacement. To cap off his achievement, Nike has created a one-of-a-kind pack capturing key moments of the outfielder's epic year.
Packaged in a commemorative gold box are three versions of the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout: a Red and Volt colorway that Trout debuted during batting practice on June 20, a "Trout" colorway worn during the 85th MLB All-Star Game, and a new "MVP" edition in black, gray and gold. A corresponding tee -- the California Golden Mike Trout MVP t-shirt -- is available here, and the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout debuts on NIKEiD beginning December 15.
