Man, not much going for the Braves in this list at all. Sadness.

I just can't get excited about BC this year. Which probably means it's going to be great.

Four is a great thing. Not sure if they'll replace a prospect auto, but I would assume so.

Btw, I have confirmed the "prospect variations" are indeed a different photo of the player.

From what I'm reading the prospect auto subjects do not have non-auto cards then? Should be good for auto subjects but not so good for breakers looking to move non auto prospects as the non auto prospect checklist isn't exactly brimming with big names.

No, it looks like the auto subjects still have non-auto prospect cards too unless I'm reading the list wrong. At least the ones who haven't had a 1st Bowman Chrome yet.

Quite an interesting propsect list, left a lot of players out in my opinion. Some of the teams with autos just took a decline, in team breaks I think those top few picks just gained a lot more value and there's a bit more separation from the middle of the pack

Many of them have previously had non-autoed prospect cards so it wouldn't make sense to give them yet another non-autoed prospect card (although, with Topps, common sense is sometimes in short supply). It looks to me like the autoed prospects who don't already have a non-autoed prospect card are in the non-autoed base set though.

I know someone who pulled only 2 base Soler autos (no parallels) in 20 hobby cases.

Probably just bad luck, but worth mentioning.

No Zunino means money stays in my wallet for this release. That's a definite plus.

There was never a chance he, or any other 2012 draftee, would have been in 2012 Bowman Chrome.

Topps needs to have a policy that the only prospects on the checklist are at least top 20 guys in each minor league.

BaseballAmerica.com: Prospects: Rankings: League Top 20 Prospects: 2010

(That would give them to 300+ prospects to choose from). Either that or make a smaller checklist and weed out a lot of these guys...

Obviously, they need to save guys for future products but there should be enough turnover every year to have at least a decent % of prospects in the checklist that people have actually heard of...

Just by guessing, wouldn't be surprised if Billy Hamilton and Castellanos were SPed too.

If that's the case, this product just went from average to very weak.

I was really hoping Trevor Rosenthal would have an auto in this. Especially now that I have seen him pitch this season and post season.

From my count there's only 4 auto prospects that have non-auto cards in 2012 BC. Of the rest of the auto subjects, 16 more w/o non auto cards already have past Bowman cards so hurrah to Topps for that. However that still leaves another 20 more auto prospects with no non-auto cards in this or any other Bowman set. Still say that the lack of the non auto cards hurts breakers as the they would be better value add than whatever 20 other non auto prospects are in the checklist otherwise.

Wondering if this means we'll see some of these guys have non-auto cards in BDPP since I seem to recall that BDPP will have a smaller rookie checklist and larger prospect checklist.
