Soph Stars - Synderggaard, Franco, Swihart

Base



Veterans -- 100 paper -- no dupes - 66.6% of the base of 150



72 Bowman Prospects - 48% of the base set of 150



48 Bowman Chrome Prospects - 32% of the base set of 150

********************

Always one of my favorite issues of the new baseball year. (Suggestion for Topps --- why not make the paper for retail and the chrome for hobby stores only?) Bowman is a must for the set collector, and the prospect collector. Every year many of us go back 2, 3 or more years of cards to see who we might have that is now a shining star in the bigs. These cards are no exception. Of the 150 prospects, only a few will be really really good in the majors.

I like the number of inserts and parallels. One insert set would be really great to chase - the orange top 100 - only 25 of each -- how cool would that be to have that set? Whoever might collate that one would probably have a one of a kind!!

I also like the Turn Two chrome insert -- looks great!

The parallel collectors out there again will have one heck of a mountain to climb - refractors - labeled with the word 'refractor' and numbered!!! YES!, gold, red, blue, purple, and I am sure I left one or more out... plus the shimmer refractors.

Overall grade A+ - my favorite!!

Go buy several boxes --- I still need a few chromes to complete my set and as always - send the Rays parallels to me!

Nice break! Nice spotting the orange number to 25 in the scouting 100! I could use the Jake Bauer scouting 100 and in trade I have a TB scouting on Blake Snell for the trade. Let me know. Best regards, David

You're killing me.... giving up one of my Rays... even though I am getting one in return... you could have asked for a Rockies player.

Post the trade.... you get Jake for Blake

Duane, I like the Bowmans to . But to give them A . They put 3 sets in one box to make sure you buy a lot . And half of the numbers you have a hard time reading. Red and blue on back . They did something like this on some other past set and there were a lot of complaints. I give them a B-
But I will still collect them.

Hey Duane,

Any chance you want to trade that Turner...haven't had any luck getting hold of his RC auto yet. Let me know what you might want in return.

Thanks,
Andy
