Topps releases Bowman Chrome prospect autograph list

Bowman baseball will be hitting the stores sometime next month. Today, Topps released its final checklist of the Bowman Chrome prospect autographs, which will be included in the set.

Bowman issues specialize in prospect and rookie cards, and this year’s baseball set will include 38 different prospects’ autographs.

That includes the Pirates’ Josh Bell, whose picture is featured in this post. Other notables include Anthony Rendon, Danny Hultzen, Gerrit Cole and Matt Purke. The Rays weigh in with a prospect, too—Kes Carter. the team’s first-round pick out of Western Kentucky in 2011.

One never knows with a set of prospect cards. Some become stars, others never pan out. That’s the beauty of Bowman cards, though. A collector can get a player’s first card and keep it, and if that player turns into a star then it’s a plus.

Time will tell.
