A quick note, due to the fiasco that has come as a result of the "Rookie Card Logo", there are often wide discrepancies in the years from the cards collectors refer to as a player's RC and the year the MLB says is their rookie card. For the purpose of this post I will be referring to the player's first recognized card and making a note, when applicable, of the year the player's RC logo card appears.
Joey Votto- Coming off a Triple Crown caliber season Votto has the rare gift of being able to hit for average and power. A few timely hits, a couple of majestic home runs and a good team showing could push his cards up 20-30% short-term and 10% long-term.

Buster Posey- Collectors are already very high on Posey having made his pro debut earlier this season. A catcher many compare to the Twins Joe Mauer he hits for average and shows flashes of power which he is expected to grow into. With his cards already trading at a premium, collectors should expect a 25% to 50% spike in prices if Posey breaks out with a memorable post season run.
