The baseball card and sportscard markets have been booming over the last year or so and it has been on fire since sports returned last month. There are some New York Mets players whose baseball cards are on the rise and will make good investments.
For those New York Mets fans who do not know there are two main brands of baseball cards. There is the Topps brand, which is for current major leaguers and there is the Bowman brand, which is mainly for prospects.
Both brands are licensed with Major League Baseball and are great products depending on what you are looking for. The top five Mets baseball cards to be discussed represent both Topps and Bowman.
Baseball cards seem to be offering a great return on investment lately and even more so since the end of July when the season started. Everyone is buying up cards at a rapid clip and the prices just keep going up.
When buying these cards there is a question you need to ask yourself. Do you want the card graded or ungraded? If it is a graded card you want to focus on the top three grading agencies PSA, BGS, and SGC.
The reason this is mentioned is because the graded cards look nicer and hold their value longer.
The five players that will be mentioned are all players that are either having good seasons this year, are high profile players, or young players with bright futures.
In no way is this article suggesting any money be spent, it is just to be a fun and informative piece about the baseball card market and how the Mets players fit into it. If you choose to spend money that is up to you.
