Default Top 10 products

I put this on the bball page too. What's your top 10 rankings of current baseball brands in production. I notice the thread with heritage is like 100 pages already. Anyways top 10 based on popularity, value, interest singles generate, etc?

I agree, I don't think you could really have a coherent top 10 of most exciting brands. Base Topps and Heritage are the top two as far as breadth and depth of appeal. A&G is probably the #3 Topps brand. There are some real Ginterheads out there, but A&G has a fair amount of haters (same design every year, why are these cup stackers and air guitar players getting autos in a baseball set?). Gypsy Queen is the same but to lesser degrees.

After that, it gets harder to rank popularity. Stadium Club and Finest have their fans but less universal appeal. Mid- and high-end brands like Triple Threads, Tier One, Dynasty, or Museum all have devotees and detractors. Lots of people love sets like Archives because it's retiree-focused, but a lot of people ignore it for the same reason. These brands are all more or less niche products.

Of course, the Bowman brands get tons of attention. BDP is maybe the #3 or even #2 product Topps puts out. But they also get a surprising amount of scorn because the best cards get to be insanely expensive, and at least some of those guys in those sets never set foot on a major league field, or if they do, they don't justify their card prices (as if that's a failing of the player).

These are my favorites, but I don't do prospects. I like rookie cards and vets. I do love Bowman's Best which has a lot of prospect content, but it has a lot of nice rookie and vet content as well.

1. Heritage
2. Bowman's Best
3. Tek
4. Finest
5. Flagship
6. Archives
7. Stadium Club
8. Chrome
9. Ginter
10. Five Star
11. Tier One (love the dual auto's don't care about the rest)
12. Museum Collection (love the framed auto's don't care about the rest)

Don't care for any others really.
Please don't message me offering to buy something I posted in a pickup thread - I will post it in the buy/sell section if I am looking to move it. And unsolicited messages offering to sell something will be deleted.

Default Top 10 products

I collect in deal in RCs and rc parallels, not so much prospecting. So for me it would be:
Topps chrome
Flagship/ Update/ch update
Bowman and Bc
Bowman best
And that's about it
