Most Watched Rookie Cards

No matter what type of baseball cards you collect--vintage or modern--rookie cards are generally the premier stock in your portfolio.  Whether you prefer a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle or a 2009 Mike Trout Bowman Chrome, a player's earliest cards are generally his most popular and valuable.

Investors typically focus on them and the biggest cash outlay--and the biggest potential return--is in high grade rookies.
