I like this list. At least 5 strong, obvious names, a few I like myself for prospects, and a few unknowns. As always a little crap mixed in. Like I said...I like it.

I'm 100% with you guys! Sure, there won;t be any base autos going for a couple hundred right off the bat, but this will be another year that people kick themselves for not buying early!! I'm all about this checklist!

Are there going to be rookie autos too? I always get confused.

Plus I am still aroused at upwards of 20 autos I want from this

However, that means you can do MUCH, MUCH better buying singles than breaking by the case!!!

My question is this- since I won't be breaking and alot of reputable buyers that I usually go to won't be breaking either. Are there any known good ebay sellers on sellers here that don't cherry pick for grading? There are a couple players I am going to target.

The market will be flooded at release, just like every Bowman (Chrome) release.

this is definitely a solid list...for me, there are 15 guys I wouldn't want to pull an auto (close in line with Jaypers' 8 1 star and 8 2 star guys, I'd imagine), so that's 37.5%. Not as good as 2011 Draft, where the odds were 26.5% of getting a dud auto in my book (plus the awesome color), but few products will be that good.

Regardless of Jaypers, list its a solid list. He wont even break it down for you and thats his prerogative, but you guys should form your own opinions not base it off of him especially without back up.

The main guys: Hamilton, Skaggs, Castellanos....some would put Soler and Marisnick in here. Maybe even Austin or Singleton but I would say the top 3 is set


Tier 1: Skaggs, Hamilton, Castellanos
Tier 2: Soler, Austin, Singelton, Marsincik, maybe Paxton, I would put Buckel here since I am a fan boy
Tier 3: Buckel, Santana, Campos, Guzman, Mazarra, May, Head, Villanueva, Cigrani, ODor

I mean Tier 3 is loaded cuz you got guys like Garcia and Ozuna too.

You can also follow the group breaks on here to see which members pull which players' slots, and then see if they are selling.

thankfully this list helped me pick out a few guys for houdini's drafts coming up... i am hoping the better players are NOT SSP like hosmer, ackley, turner and lawrie were the past time around.

using the topps method of SP'ing prospects that have already made it to the bigs and included in the list:

these guys should be SSP-

skaggs
rutledge

we'll see

One thing I've learned from Topps. Never assume their product strategy will remain the same from year to year.

I won't be cherry picking and I'm breaking 5 cases. I have no interested in collecting prospects. I just got done with a 3 cases break of panini prestige basketball and you can read my feedback on eBay from customers I had for that.

Is the non-auto list out yet? I'm just curious what O's will be in the prospect product since I didn't get any O's in here.

Looks like I'm just going to have to hope Bundy auto's get chaper this winter so I can pick some of those up instead.

Not yet. I've already been asking Topps about this. Hopefully we'll find out before it releases.

Billy Hamilton is by far the top auto in this group.
