Where to Find the New Rookie Cards

It’s the time of year when young prospects start making their way to the big leagues and that means a heads up for card companies and collectors.

With Bryce Harper and Yu Darvish gaining most of the attention over the last couple of months, Topps has announced plans for a couple of other headline-grabbers.
