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.

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.

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.

Thanks...I'm more old school, meaning a normal production run rookie card (i.e. 2011 Topps Update Trout vs. all the uber rare and expensive insert cards).

The gold parallels are the perfect balance of the two. Numbered to the year of the card so they're readily available but difficult to pull, if that makes sense.

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