2024 Pulse Baseball features a 60-card base checklist. It is full of prospects, including some who have already made their major league debuts. Top prospects include Samuel Basallo, Junior Caminero, Brady House, Emmanuel Rodriguez, Kyle Teel, Jacob Wilson, and James Wood as well as current major leaguers like Evan Carter and Drew Thorpe. Each base card is also available in seven different parallels: Ruby (/99), Sapphire (/50), Emerald (/25), White (/15), Gold (/10), Purple (/5) and Platinum (1/1).

There are just two insert sets, with both being short printed and tough to pull. All 60 players from the base checklist also have autographed cards, all of which are signed on-card. Autographed cards can also be pulled in all seven parallels.

I have to be honest, I had never even heard of Pulse Trading Cards before stumbling upon this product on social media. I figured it was worth a shot to feature here. This product was just released on June 28.

There is one single pack in each box, which pulls out of the box in this pretty nifty cardboard tray. 

Base cards:

Gabriel Gonzalez & Jordan Beck

Jordan Beck is currently ranked 56th on MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects list. He has split time between Triple-A and the majors this season. 

Parallels:

Brayden Taylor Ruby (5/85) & Orelvis Martinez Sapphire (13/50)

Both Taylor (59) and Martinez (61) appear on the Top 100 Prospects list. 

Autographs:

Carson Palmquist, Jacob Wilson & Kyle Teel Gold (3/10)

Palmquist is currently in Double-A and striking out almost a batter and a half per inning pitched. Wilson has been tearing up minor league pitching all season, batting .461 across three minor league levels. Kyle Teel ranks 24th on the Top 100. He is in Double-A at the moment. 

Lastly, the Jordan Beck card back. There’s not much at all going on here. 

This was a fun, quick rip. It certainly helps when you pull a rare autograph of one of your favorite team’s top prospects.

A couple of observations. The fact that autographs are all on-card is a huge plus, in my opinion. Another positive is that the short checklist is loaded with top prospects. This certainly increases the chances of pulling an autograph of a name moving up the minor league ranks. The cards are also fairly thick stock, making it feel like a premium product.

A negative: the cards seem to be inconsistently cut. The autographs look like they are a bit shorter than the base and parallel cards. Also, they are extremely plain, which I guess can be expected with an unlicensed product. 

In my opinion, it can be worth the price if you’re just looking for a quick rip. I’m not sure how much value these brand new unlicensed cards will hold, though.
