One of the earliest Canadian-issued sets to include only baseball players, 1912 C46 Baseball stands out for its somewhat intricate design elements. International League players are showcased on the 90-card checklist.

Aimed largely at hit seekers and fans of classic cards, 2012 Leaf Best of Baseball is highlighted by a graded or slabbed buyback in every single-pack box. Boxes also come with either an exclusive autograph or sketch card.
Led by a clean design and the iconic Rickey Henderson rookie, 1980 Topps Baseball rings in a new decade with a solid 726-card set. While there aren’t any other top tier rookies, the checklist highlights the top stars of the time.
Driven by the first Mike Trout MLB autograph, 2009 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Baseball sees the familiar year-end return of rookies and emerging stars. The slightly revamped checklist makes room for 35 World Baseball Classic cards.
2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Baseball has one of the strongest autograph lineups in recent history. Key signers include Michael (Giancarlo) Stanton, Buster Posey and Jesus Montero. As usual, Refractors remain popular as well.
1961 Fleer Baseball features a checklist of all retired players. Boasting a gorgeous design and the likes of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Ty Cobb, this is one of the most under-appreciated sets of the era.
Autographs and Refractors highlight 2007 Bowman Draft Picks & Baseball. Focusing almost entirely on rookies, prospects and draft picks, the set combines the Bowman and Bowman Chrome brands. Get full info, including a complete checklist and buying guide.

One of the all-time great sets in the hobby, 1888 N28 Allen & Ginter Baseball helped inspire one of the modern hobby’s most popular brands. Besides baseball players, the classic set also has athletes from other sports.

1997 Bowman Chrome Baseball helped bring rookie cards back to the forefront of the hobby. Led by rookie cards of Roy Halladay, Lance Berkman and others, it remains one of the best modern baseball card sets.
Outside of Evan Longoria and Clayton Kershaw Bowman Chrome autographs, 2006 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects Baseball is an overall weak release for the brand. However, there are a couple of dark horses collectors can watch for. And, as always, Refractor rainbows remain a popular choice.
