Our Vintage Breaks That Offer You The Best Chance at a Rookie Cards and Hall of Famers

Our Vintage Breaks That Offer You The Best Chance at a Rookie Cards and Hall of Famers

Pulling a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rookie card isn't as hard as you think.

.The bigger the better. While that saying may be true for certain situations, it doesn't always apply especially when it comes to sports cards. For years, card companies have been giving customers what they want: more cards. The result is massive sets that can sometimes reach 700 cards or more which makes it harder to find key rookie cards in packs. However, there have been releases that feature smaller set sizes and also have desirable rookie cards. 

We have compiled a short list of products available on Vintage Breaks that have a small set size with rookie cards of Hall of Fame players. Here are the best chances at valuable rookie cards:
