Onyx Authenticated‘s first baseball card product, 2012 Onyx Authenticated Platinum Prospects, is set to ship beginning on Friday and that’s not the only news as the newcomer will have a presence at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention as well.

The company announced its plans for the show set for Aug. 1-5 in Baltimore on Thursday, and it will have a wrapper redemption program for those who open a six-box case of the product at the event.

Collectors who rip a case of Platinum Prospects at the Onyx booth will receive the following pair of cards (while supplies last):

On Aug. 2, a Rymer Liriano autograph and Jameson Taillon game-used jersey card.

On Aug. 3, a Jameson Taillon autograph and Gary Sanchez game-used card.

On Aug. 4, a Gary Sanchez autograph and Gerrit Cole game-used jersey card.

The company also will be giving away a Babe Ruth signed baseball from those who found Ruth Lottery redemptions in recent memorabilia products.

    I know not everyone likes Topps, but I really don’t understand why anyone would want these ugly cards with no logos when Topps puts out a pair of very attractive minor league (fully-licensed) sets each year.

    Has there ever been a “prospects” set like this that held its value over the long term? Some cards might get hot for a while when and if the players hit the Majors and start doing well, but then the values always drop when their first real rookie cards and Major League autos & memorabilia come out.

    Pretty cool but are they going to become a main stay in the baseball world if so think about the collector ONYX
