If you’re a veteran prospector you’ve probably ripped into a few Bowman Draft cases through the years, but the latest upcoming break from BlowoutTV is one that has to impress even the most-grizzled of hobby veterans.
It’s a 50-case break of 2015 Bowman Draft. Yep, 50 cases. That’s 600 boxes. That’s 14,400 packs. That’s a whole lot of potential.
The clock is winding down on the auction for this break (click here for the basics) but there are a few players who will grab the attention of prospectors now — and inevitably those and a few others will grab the attention of baseball fans later. (It’s Bowman Draft.)
Here are a few of the notables.
Andrew Benintendi — How many cards of this 21-year-0ld Red Sox prospect will be found? Enough that he’s among the top three in terms of bidding for the Chrome autographs. He’s hitting .297 with 22 doubles, eight triples, four homers and 52 RBI this season.
Brendan Rodgers — This Colorado Rockies prospect is hitting .296 with 17 doubles, 10 homers and 38 RBI this season. The shortstop is a former No. 3 overall pick with plenty of time on his side as he’s just 19.
Dansby Swanson — Now an Atlanta Braves prospect, this former No. 1 overall pick has been impressive at times this season with a .279 average, six homers and 34 RBI in 68 games. Those numbers aren’t as crazy as others here, but that hasn’t stopped demand for his cards in the auction. He’s clearly got a future waiting for him in Atlanta sometime soon — and bidders know it.
Carson Fulmer — Another of the Vanderbilt stars with an eye on the majors, this pitcher has 68 strikeouts in 68 innings, though his record and ERA aren’t quite big-league just yet at 3-8 and 5.82 in Double-A ball. Compared to the three top hitters, though, he’s a bargain in the auction.
Kyle Tucker — This 19-year-old Houston Astros outfield prospect is hitting .304 with 25 stolen bases this season, though that some prospectors are watching him closely — and one bidder, too.
There are inevitably other gems to be found — and who knows what kind of color or Superfractor potential there might be in 50 cases — but your first step of getting in the game for this 50-case break is clicking here to scout how things look and deciding which player in the break is for you.
