    Best Baseball set this year?

    Hi all,

    I am a long time collector that took about a decade (or two) off from collecting baseball cards, and I am looking to get back in. What are the best baseball cards to buy now? Yes, I realize 'best' is a subjective term, but what I am looking for is mid-high end on par with The Cup / Panini Prime / Dominion from hockey, or essentially what are your favorite high end boxes to buy.

    Thanks

    I enjoyed the two boxes of National Treasures I could afford (very high price point though), I've also bought a few boxes of Triple Threads this year and although its a great set I just haven't had any luck with it.
    Looking for 2012 National Treasures on card silver (/99) rated rookie autos, 2006 SP Legendary Cuts inserts/numbered base and most Mets auto/GU.
    Also looking for Celtics Autos/GU and 2012 Totally Certified Gold

    I usually buy a box or two of triple threads (can't really afford anything higher end than that). If you're looking to build sets, I always go with Heritage. It's not too expensive and I always like the throwback look.

    Heritage has a great look and is an affordable set to complete

    Thanks for all of the replies so far.

    I noticed no one mentioned Topps Tribute - from what I have seen on eBay, they look really sweet. Thoughts?

    I like Topps Tribute, but many people have had mediocre pulls in that product. That said, I think it has a great look.

    Also, you probably already know this, but if you go with Panini stuff, you won't get any team logos or names with their stuff since they don't have a license for it from the MLB (only Topps does). So, you get a lot of cut off foreheads and airbrushed jerseys, if that matters to you.

    Personally I won't buy any cards missing the logos and team names, but a lot of people do.
