2012 Bowman Baseball

Photobucket


Currently, Bowman Baseball's annual first release is considered the most important set for prospects and rookies. This years set will again revolve around Bryce Harper, as well as #1 Draft Pick Gerrit Cole. Key rookies will include Jesus Montero, Brett Lawrie, Yu Darvish, and Matt Moore. Lets see what we got!

Prospects Joc Pederson and Levi Michael start things off. Pederson hit 11 dingers and had 65 ribeyes in the minors last year. Levi Michael played 65 games for North Carolina last year, with a collegiate career BA of .306.

Here are my two chromes, both Mariner pitchers. Fernandez has been floating around a while, while Hultzen was the second overall draft pick in 2011. Not too shabby.

Some veterans in the form of Howie Kendrick and Tim Hudson.

Some more veterans in the form of JJ Hardy and Albert Pujols.

My gold card is Yankees RC Dellin Betances. A native of Brooklyn.

This is, by far, the hit of the pack. A silver ice RC parallel of Brett Lawrie. Awesome card. Will be interesting to see what these will be going for.

Pretty nice pack! I'll be reviewing more from the blaster box this came from over at my blog http://www.waxpackgeek.com
