Default FOMO - what prospect do you NOT have any cards of?

So who's cards are maybe just a little too pricey to buy right now or maybe you are just too lazy to pick one up that you know is going to shoot up in price if you continue to NOT own one?

What's keeping you from buying?

And which cards will you regret not picking up today in preparation for the season?

I don't own anything of heliot ramos but it would bother me if his stuff continues to get more expensive.

I sold out on Vlad and Bichette, and have no intention to get back in. Too rich for my tastes.

Vlad...Was too pricey for me pretty much from Day 1.

Acuna...Did buy a few ahead of the hype, but not as much as I'd like. Also, got some IP auto 8x10s when no one else asked him to sign cause they were busy with Allard/Soroka. G

Benintendi...Not a prospect, but as a Sox fan, I try to buy an auto of every player I can in the organization. He seemed pricey right out of the gate, even compared to similar Sox prospects of the past so I missed out.

Had some Judge, but sold last spring

There's always prospects which have very poor initial buy-ins. Kevin Maitan comes to mind recently.

Last year it was Bellinger.

Always loved his power and that he played for LA and would get a shot and was way too lazy and ended up with absolutely nothing.

This year, Gleyber and Eloy. I’ve had multiple chances to put lots of money in Gleyber (never really “searched out” Eloy), but I own basically nothing (no Autos).

I had my sights set on Eloy back in 2016 before he had any chrome autos. Think his chromes would have been under 50 per base when I would have bought in, and now he's gotten very expensive.

If only they released his chrome autos in 2014...

Eloy. Would love to have a few PSA10 colors of his but way to pricey for me now.

I paid heavily on Maitan last year. Pretty much picked him up at the height of his hype. Since then his market has been fairly volatile.

I missed Glybber completely but just got in on Eloy through Heritage which had a lower buy in at the time but is growing with each release.

I cant believe nobody's said Tatis Jr. I bought into him a little and then reality hit that he is a Padre. Unless they win every game for 2 seasons or they get traded, padre prospects will never hold value.

I remember looking at COMC and thinking of buying some Tatis Jr. autos at maybe $10 or so? This would have been a few months after release. I think they were very cheap. Also remember seeing one in a $5-10 box at the LCS and passing around the same time.

I did buy a ref auto for $55 last summer. I distinctly remember also looking at a purple for $70, and some base around $45, realizing those were the last "low" listings.

In order to alleviate my prospect FOMO (to the extent I get that), I buy their autos in non-chrome releases. So, snagged some Inception Gleybers and Robles, etc.

Very Few Prospects ever hold value. In 5 years, I doubt Moncada, Tatis, Eloy, Honeywell, Whitley, Tucker, pretty much any top 50 prospect will be worth less 5 years from now. I think its safe to say at least 45/50 will be worth less 5 years from now.

My only real auto target has been Alex Kirilloff.

Got a handful of his auto's on the cheap since he was on IR and made a few PSA 10's.

Padres are about to go on a nice run here over the next five or so years

The Padres have never had anyone as good as Tatis Jr. with a bowman chrome auto. As good as he is going to be, he will play for a large market team due to salary sooner rather than later.

Acuna, I wasn't buying the hype now I'm FOMO'ing that he will be a star. I also don't have any Gleyber but I have absolutely no FOMO there.

No FOMo for me. This time around in the hobby with prices where they are and my current financial and time priorities supporting a family instead of a bachelor, I'm not doing much prospecting at all. The buy in and attention needed to react quickly just aren't "in the cards"anymore for me. Still enjoying flipping some lower priced RCs though!

I wanted in on Acuna but wasnít willing to drop hundreds on a base auto. So I did what I did with Bryant and started picking up a bunch of his Draft base/refractors/parallels. Iíve dropped around $150 for a lot that I think I can easily double my money on in the Spring.

Kind of the opposite with Judge for me... I picked up two base autos one was 9.5/10 and two refractor autos two years ago for around $275 I believe for the lot. I resold for almost $4,000. Best lucky investment I ever had

Technically I do have 1 card(Bowman Chrome Base Auto) but I'm going to say Kyle Tucker. But I'm too cheap to pick up his others. I should pick up his Base Refractor auto while it's affordable. If he doesn't get traded, I have a feeling he'll become an important player and be part of the main core for Houston.

I joke around on how I end up jinxing players I collect(For hockey but it started to happen in baseball). I chose Whitley over Tucker. Whitley with his recent suspension is proving my jinx to be real so far.

This is strictly from an auto standpoint. Here are the names that have eluded me:

Acuna
Vlad
Beni
Tatis
Senzel
Adell
Rooker

Major regret, pulled a red draft Bichette auto last year. Dumped it for 500, took the quick buck and kicked myself ever since! !
