Going to dip my toes into baseball just a little. Wanting to bust a couple of boxes, was thinking a few hobby or maybe even a jumbo box.

I’ve come across from Basketball and spent a lot of dollars learning what product was right for me. Hoping to cut down a lot of that process by getting the right recommendation 😊 For Basketball
I’m a Prizm and Optic fan, basically I like the “popular” products and stuff that’s most in demand. I don’t want to collect those in Baseball if they’re not the popular product.

My goal is to hit a few rookies to sit on and enjoy watching them over their careers. The names I’d be looking to chase are the usual Acuna, Soto and Franco plus whatever else I hit I’ll hold and hope for the best 😊

From looking at a few breaks I seem to be a fan of Topps Chrome and Bowman 1st.. I have no idea if those are actual boxes or products I’ve just read that from the card and PSA labels 😂 Can someone educate me.

My main issue is I don’t understand what cards to chase for rookies.. is it Pre Rookie Card that is considered a true rookie or are the Rookie Cards the right ones to go with?
