best recent brand/year for rookie cards?

Postby SpecialFNK » Fri Aug 03, 2007 9:30 pm

im looking to buy some packs of baseball cards from recent seasons, but im looking for the best chance at pulling the best rookie cards i can get.
i think Bowman/Bowman Crome is the best brand, but which of the past recent seasons is the best year to go after?
2007? 2006? 2005? 2004? 2003? ect

I like all Bowman stuff, any year. The ones with the higher end rookies will go for more per pack, but you could get a bunch of 2007 stuff for ~$4 a pack and watch (hope) one of the guys you pull skyrockets in vlaue like Ryan Howard or Ryan Braun and in 2 years the cost of those packs is over $10 per.

Why gamble on packs? Just buy that rookie card.
