    Best set to buy graded from 2018

    Hey everyone, there's a few players I'd like to pick some stuff up from 2018. Getting back into the hobby but trying not to bust so many packs and focus on buying what I want. I'm looking at a few graded rookies from 2018 what sets would you reccomend. I'm looking at Select and Prism right now what do you think will hold value better any input welcome!

    I collect graded cards and have learned the hard way, it is in most cases (with base cards) to buy them already graded. What I have learned is I send in a few and they may come back as a PSA 9. So I spent $50 in grading for a card I could have bought for $20. The older the card the more this applies.

    Of course there is the flip side too. I have sent in cards to be graded and got 9's and 10's and paid a few dollars per card and sold them graded much higher (89 Score Aikman, 90 Score Supp Smith, 2005 Topps DeMarcus Ware)

    As for most value. What is better today may not be better tomorrow. I would pick the one you like the best. I always pick wrong. LOL

    As for rookies: Offensive players are generally more notable than defensive players, Quarterbacks over running backs over wide a generality. There are always exceptions.
