Chicago’s Youth Movement Powers a Special Playoff Edition of Panini Price Index
With baseball’s postseason nearing the final two teams, it’s apparent that youth is king and there’s one clear favorite on cardboard within this latest edition of the Panini Price Index.
The Chicago Cubs’ powerful rookies — Kris Bryant and Kyle Schwarber in particular — have been generating plenty of interest in the secondary market, particularly with their array of autographs and memorabilia cards found in boxes of 2015 Immaculate Collection.
However, the young stars on the other remaining postseason teams — and a few young stars on teams no longer in the chase — can be found in the mix, too.
After the jump, you can see recent sales of more than 80 cards for teams chasing a championship — all cards found in boxes of baseball cards from Panini America.
That’s just a small sampling of what’s been discovered in Panini America boxes and sold online recently.
