Default Thinking of starting a new PC, suggestions?

Hey guys, i am looking to start a new PC. I collect Kris Medlen, but he has few cards, and only one auto. I will definitely still collect Kris Medlen, but i want to start PC of a guy who has autos and patches, but isn't that expensive. I like the Braves and Marlins, so their is a starting point. Please give me some recommendations.

Andrelton Simmons? Seems to be the future SS in Atlanta, not that expensive and not that much catching up to do on older cards of his.

Current or former Marlin ? If former, I'd suggest Willingham, Uggla or Hermida. All have a ton of patches that can be had for cheap amounts.

First one that popped in my head, I think he'd be perfect. Good young player, good variety of rookies, autos and GU'd, and fairly inexpensive.

Jordan Schafer was picked back up. With Bourn leaving he could end up seeing a lot of action in center next year. His stuff is dirt cheap. Not a lot of cards of him either though. Uggla may be your best bet for lots of cheaper options.

tyler pastornicky: i saw him play in one game vs. the Phillies this summer - he has speed and gets on base. not sure how he projects, or anything, just hope he doesn't turn out to be like his father.

Uggla is not only a former Marlin, he's a current Brave.



CW52Cards, don't just pick a guy because you have to pick a guy. Wait until there's someone that meets your criteria that you actually want to collect too.



If you do go with Pastornicky, 2012 is the year of Pastornicky as far as cards go. It's raining Patornicky autos. You could probably build a case for your Pastornicky collection out of Pastornicky autos.

I don't know how many autos and relics he has, but Omar Infante is a former Brave and Marlin who I assume could be pretty cheap. Not 100% sure, though.

Freddie Freeman.

He's young and a future perennial All Star.

Fairly cheap now for what he's going to be.
