What’s your pick for the best baseball product of the last decade?

If you could only buy one pack of cards a day from 2000 to today — and could only collect those cards — what would it be and why?

2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces. The artwork on the cards is outstanding and the player selection is top notch. A great mix of retired and current players with a few surprises thrown in.

2009 Allen & Ginter. Although I haven’t collected this full decade, this product has amazing looking cards and great chances of good pulls.

That’s a hard decision if it’s not my money any exquesite but if I have to pay probably 2005 sterling why pedroia rookie need I say more

Allen & Ginter, any year. The artwork and style are perfect. Who would have guessed the baseball card was perfected in 1887. I have been very critical of Topps, but I must give credit where credit is due.

I’d personally lean toward 2006 Allen & Ginter myself… but don’t let me sway anything.

2005 Topps Total.

A fairly good challenge to put together because of its size — took me 6 boxes to get close to completion, IIRC — and its size also made it the best because it was the most comprehensive collection of major leaguers available.

I’m still a Bowman sucker! I love looking up the unknown players, following their minor league stats, then when they make it to the show, I feel like a proud dad. It’s like pulling for the underdog with every pack. Love it!
