Default Starting a PC

I'm looking to start a PC of Zack Wheeler (Mets top MiLB prospect), and I was wondering how I should kick start it.

I already have a good amount of base cards, so I figured the next logical step would to be buying some high numbered cards, relics, and refractors. I've been searching eBay for a few days and have found some numbered and relic cards that are low priced and could hopefully compliment my bigger PC cards later on.

But, since it is the offseason and he hasn't made his ML debut, his really good cards wouldn't be priced too high.

I'm leaning towards my first though, but any response and help would be awesome. Thanks!

lol. I know, but would it be better to start off slow and gradually start to buy more expensive cards or just dive right in?

May seem like a pretty stupid question but I don't want to do anything and regret it.

I understand that, especially after Generation K, but I've met him with my uncle a couple of times in San Francisco a few years ago. I want to collect him not only because he could become very good, but I think I'd have a lot of fun collecting him.

I assume pitchers would also cost a little cheaper, no?

oh, if you have met the guy and you want to pc him because he is a great guy and player, than yes i would pc him. if you are investing in him, then i would say no. and to answer your last question.......it all matters about how good they are, i guess.

Why not collect pitchers? I have a decent size Verlander collection...

No, I get you.

Starting slow is probably for the best. Prospecting is fun, I totally see the appeal, but starting a HUGE personal collecting of just ONE prospect seems super risky. Like that eggs in a basket addage

I would say grab a couple good deals when you see them, maybe even a high ender or two that catches your eye. Keep it simple, though, otherwise you might end up with a big box of stuff you hate in two years and can't move.
