Baseball RCs

Post by rungunrepeat » Tue Jan 28, 2014 4:14 am

Hi folks. What is baseball's equivalent of the Young Gun? Young Guns are the most popular RCs in hockey and are loved by collectors for their clean design and affordability. Does Baseball have this as well? I know there are more companies doing baseball cards but I'm sure there's a (at least close) consensus as to what the best "common" RCs are, no?

Thanks!

My best guess would probably just a standard base rookie that comes out of Topps Series 1, 2, Update, etc. The rookies are randomly mixed into the base set, where as in hockey, the rookies have their own little "subset." That's just my 2 cents anyway.

OK. I did some searching before posting this but all it did was make things more confusing. Baseball cards are way more intense than when I was 5.

Bowman Chrome 1st Prospect cards would be considered the Upper Deck Young Guns of hockey.

Bowman Base (Hobby & Jumbo) Bowman Chrome & Bowman Draft (hobby & jumbo) all have these chrome 1st prospect cards. You want the 1st Bowman prospect chrome card of that player to make a lot of money.

Topps Pro Debut & Minor League Heritage Rookie Cards & Prospects are slowly catching up there.

With Baseball's minor league system its a bit different. Some players stay minors for 5-7 years while they work their way up to the Bigs through AAA AA and A ball. Semi-pro is before that but very few semi-pro sets are made.

RC logo cards are probably the next valuable after the prospect chromes. And of course serial numbered & color refractors are more highly coveted in Bowman products.
