Who to look for?
Ok so i am working on setting up a card business with my dad. We have been at it for about 2 months now and have actually been much more successful than we thought we would be this early. Only thing is we have just been selling football cards because that is our area of expertise...but we want to branch out and start selling all sports to help our business expand and we have no idea who is good to look for when it comes to baseball. Obviously Yu Darvish, Trout, Harper, Jeter, Griffey, Ruth, gehrig are names that everyone knows, but is there anybody beyond that we should keep an eye out for? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Who to look for?

Mainly go with the guys that you know. If you have any doubts about players you can always look in beckett magazine for the players that price the highest. You will never go wrong with Koufax, Aaron, Mays and Mantle.

RE: Who to look for?
Being in WA I'd go with Mike Zunino. He was the Mariners #1 pick 3rd overall and is probably the best bat out of the 2012 draft. He is also on the fast track to the majors as he came out of college and doesn't need the polishing that the prep players do. He will be the M's starting catcher when he arrives and will bump Jesus Montero to a full time Dh.
