Welcome to a not-so-spooky October edition of Beckett Sports Card Hot/Cold where we have fun and take a quick look at what’s hot and what’s not in the worlds of sports cards and sports.

As the baseball regular season comes to a close, a handful of teams are making late runs for the postseason. It has made for a high-stakes teaser of what’s likely to come in the weeks ahead as the World Series picture gets a little clearer. In true fashion, there seems to be a different hero every night, particularly for teams like Seattle and Toronto.

One team that isn’t battling to make the playoffs is St. Louis. A month ago, it was looking like their season would end this weekend. But an incredible run in September changed that and they are headed to the Wild Card. One of the reasons is Tyler O’Neill. Just last month he hit 11 home runs and drove in 27. He’s worth keeping an eye on should the Cardinals pull off a deep run.

2021 Bowman Chrome Baseball continues to drive things as far as new products go. The autographs are a big reason why, but if you’re a fan of bold designs, the regular inserts have plenty of those.

The sample size for the 2021 NFL season is growing and some patterns are starting to emerge. Right now, that means some growing pains for multiple high-profile rookies. Most notable of these is Trevor Lawrence. Although he had his best game yet on Thursday, the Jaguars are still 0-4. He’s still one of the biggest names in the year’s rookie class but there’s definitely a bit of a levelling off with his cards at the moment.

This week’s Hot/Cold is brought to you by Dynasty Breaks.
