I havent bought cards in a few years but Bowman is always good for Rookies if thats something your looking for, Topps if your tyring to get a complete set at a reasonable price. Upper Deck had many diffent types of brands out there and some are more expensive than others because they cards are better and chances of high priced game worn/auto cards are there.
I was a set collecter and would collect Bowman for baseball. I liked Topps for football and Upper Deck for hockey...
I mean if I wanted to start collecting some decent ones on eBay or something, what do I look for? Say someone like Miguel Cabrera.
If you want to collect just a single player, something I use to do also, I usually start by trying to get every rookie card of them (just the base set rookie cards, which would be part of the regular set, not Autographed or Game Worn rookie cards).
Then it just depends on if you want to go just the high end Game Worn and Auto route for that player or if just want to get as many cards as possible of that player.
What I would do is pick a top prospect from this past season or this upcoming season and try to collect them, becaues a player like miggy already has 1000's of cards out there.
is a great site (as im looking around it now, something i havent done inawhile)

there are great deals on Miggy cards if that is who you want, but you can always search any player and it seems a lot of prices are reasonable priced
hope this helps
