Default The modern card market with Yelich as example

Yelich is off to an amazing start this year -- he's had a great three weeks LOL. I was checking out his RCs and they literally have tripled over preseason levels. The cards are abundant. I guess I just don't get it?

I make a living doing this and I love it. This is my stock market. I bought Yelich at next to nothing years ago. All comes down to supply vs demand.

Right I guess I just don't understand the huge spike in demand on the basis of a 27 year old having 3 great weeks.

He's been seen as a superstar in waiting for a long time now and has shown flashes of his potential before (2016, for example). Entering his prime years of 27 through 31, probably a good time to sell vs buy but I can understand why there's much more interest in him now.

If you want something old school, 2013 Topps Update Yelich. The Black version /62 is going to be the super premium version of that card. People will say it's manufactured scarcity but the black versions of the older, bordered cards look incredible.

The modern Chrome folks-2010 Bowman Chrome autographs for sure.

I like the Heritage but even those are way over $100 for a 10 now. Yikes.

A lot of it has to do with last season. He followed up his MVP campaign with an even better start in his encore season.

Look at Vlad Jr. Kid hasn't played in the Majors and his cards are insanely high.

I think many were waiting to see if he could continue the blistering pace he had the second half of the year, and there were many doubters. Because he came out of the box hot, people saw that as validation, hence the rise. Whether that proves accurate in the long run, who knows. I know I have picked up a number of his cards over the past few weeks at decent prices.

I also like to pick up the Chrome versions of the rookie cards too when I can. Just a nice higher end parallel to the base cards.

I have a couple of Altuves. The 2011 Update Set really does have a nice crop of stars. Goldschmidt is in there, JD Martinez too.

Still hoping that Machado works out, I bought this super rare one -- 3 9s no 10s how often do you see that for a modern card.

Thanks guys! Fun thread.

Out of all the players, Bellinger seems the most confusing to me...too many rookie cards to choose from. Wish it was more stripped down like years ago. Does he have a base Topps update?

I think he has a few Update cards, but the "proper" card being US50. That card has a standard pic and an SP (where he is crossing home plate and giving high fives).

Thanks...but what makes no sense is there's multiple cards (poses) with the same "US50" card number. Bizarre, annoying.

I didn't like the Update -- odd pose -- so got this one. I know, Beckett, thumbs down, but it was a couple of years ago lol who knew.

Great cards, Peter - that Machado is really slick. I just went with his 2013 Topps and Topps Chrome cards. I have the Altuve Update and Bowman Chrome cards. The Update is a very odd card indeed. Sort of like a Twister game being played vertically.

I love buying modern rookie cards for my collection. I try and buy a few current players every year...So far this year I've picked up some players I like - Francisco Lindor, Rhys Hoskins, Carlos Correa, Javier Baez, Jose Ramirez, Jose Berrios. Vintage is my true love but there's always a place for a few modern cards for me.

Man, starting late last year Ramirez has taken a huge dive. At one point I thought he might be the best young player out there.

He's been absolutely brutal this year. I haven't really seen him play much but looking at his stats seems like he's gotten a lot less selective and making a ton of weak contact.

All good, totally get it. I've been a Philly fan in NYC for almost 20 years now so I am used to the ribbing!

Man, I was just looking back at some sales I had a few years ago and I sold a Yelich Update Gold Refractor for $10 about 3 years ago. I even sent it PWE to the buyer at his request back then.

His cards will probably be held in check somewhat by his playing in Milwaukee. Unless he wins another MVP. I remember when Braun was juicing his cards were still relatively affordable, likely because of where he was playing.

How about Matt chapman ? His can fare has not really picked up . His rookies will be on fire soon enough. His Topps update rookie is his only true rookie card so I would keep a eye on that as well.

I picked up one of his signed Bowman cards a couple years ago. Thought I scanned a pic but I must not have?

Looks like PSA has identified a few as bat down. This won't cause any confusion AT ALL.
