With what I like to call "Prospect Season" almost over, who have you loaded up on?

Recently I've been picked up a well rounded amount of autos from Draft.

But I have been making a last minute run on some Buxton Sterling autos. Those will be held until he's a full time MLB player, with the hopes of Trout like performance.
Seems like a pretty gutsy play since Trout has basically put up the best first two seasons of any player in baseball history, but I guess if any prospect could do it, it would be Buxton. I hope it pays off nicely for you!

Well its that time of year with the Holidays over, all the final 2013 prospect sets being released, Baseball season right around the corner, BA Prospect Handbook releasing and also when all the Top prospect lists come out. With all this happening/about to happen I try to have my prospecting done well before ST begins (am just about done now, actually) as by then most prospects will have risen in price with all these factors coming into play. I know people don't like to expose their prospects before they are done loading but why not show which prospect(s) stash that you are comfortable with where you are at? Here's one of mine (prob. my biggest)

Let's just say I'll be looking for big years out of CJ Edwards and Jon Singleton.


I don't see it happening, but I also wouldn't be mad if Nick Delmonico hit 25 homeruns this year.

I loaded up on Sano a couple years back only to sell my stash at a show for marginal profit. I regretted it almost immediately and loaded back up this year. Not as many as I had then, but I have 15x 2010 Bowman Chrome Auto and 1x 2010 Bowman Chrome Refractor Auto, as well as 1x 2010 Bowman Platinum Auto. Love his power potential.

Not exactly a prospect but I used the off-season to load up. He should be back healthy and he's 8 away from 500 homers. Plus prices have dropped to tiny fractions of their peaks, and I believe they've settled at a point unreasonably low for a player who will go down as one of the greatest hitters of all time. Have another 2 at PSA with an SP Chirography Auto BGS 9.5/10 not scanned.







I was wondering if anyone would be smart enough to load up on him. Kudos to you. Wish I had the money to do it.

Thanks. With prices as low as they have been since his first few years in the league (on some of the cards... his Bowman Chrome is still a monster) and him being 8 away from 500 I thought it was a pretty low risk proposition. Also, because of the injury and the fact that many of these had sat on eBay for a long time, I think sellers were willing to move them even a little below what auction prices may have been, and with attention focused elsewhere, some of the them just slipped under the radar IMO. Obviously I hope he can return to being one of the great hitters of the generation. If he gets injured again or is only a shell of his former self, I don't think I'll get hurt too much since prices were already so low, and he's already one of the best hitters in history, but it will be a royal pain trying to move some of them. That said, it's Pujols, so there would be many worse options lol. Assuming things warm up as the season approaches (and they seem to be a little already) I hope to move a few in Spring Training, some more around 500, and then hopefully his performance will lead to big bumps in price over the season. I still have some more coming in, so I hope to update the scans going forward.

I did the exact same thing with the exception of not loading back up on him
