We’ve had the holidays of the first baseball card sets of the year, we’ve had international games that count and we’ve had a night game, too.

But today is Opening Day.

Today is the day it all officially begins in full, so today’s the day we ask a simple question of you, the collectors.

Who is the player to watch this season?


There are many stories in MLB this year — legends such as Derek Jeter in his final season, international newcomers like Masahiro Tanaka, big names in new places such as Prince Fielder, and big-money contracts for the likes of Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout. Or, perhaps it’s a young player looking to make his mark, Michael Wacha or Nick Castellanos, a second-year showing from Yasiel Puig, or some minor-leaguer still awaiting an arrival like George Springer or Javier Baez? Or maybe it’s someone else, such as Bryce Harper?

But there can be only one — which player are you watching the most who has the most potential for making waves on cardboard this year?

    I’m most excited to see how Jedd Gyorko plays this year and if he continues to improve from his rookie year.

    Freddie Freeman had a break out 2013, and is primed to be better in 2014!

    Yadier Molina. The most underrated player in the league. Should be an MVP candidate every year.

    Billy Hamilton. Will he be able to perform as the everyday leadoff hitter for the Reds? IF so, how many steals will he get
