ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- You could own a truck driven by one of the best players in the MLB.

The first car of Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout is being auctioned off in Atlantic City.

Trout's parents bought him a pickup truck in 2007, when he was a junior at Millville High School in New Jersey.

He bought a new car after he was drafted by the Angels and sold the truck to the parents of his now-fiancee. They gave it to their youngest son, who has also been drafted by the Angels.

The families decided to auction it off at the National Sports Collectors Convention on Thursday. Trout autographed the outside of the glove compartment.

The truck is expected to sell for around $15,000.

Trout was baseball's MVP in 2014.
