I think Correa and Buxton will end up doing that. They're bonus autos in 2012 Draft still go for consistently 130+. Both of their base autos might be $100 dollar cards at release.

with two top prospects currently ranked 10/13 & three autos per box prices will go way up. topps, isnt done finalizing the checklist either. darvish was announced the first week of march last year & cespedes towards the end of the month. aint too late to hear some big news. already a solid checklist, anything else will be icing on the cake.

obviously the Twins and Astros are the teams to get in group breaks. What other teams should be desired in that same regard? Indians? Pirates? Mariners?

I don’t understand why you guys are trying to convince the naysayers that this is better than last years. Let them believe what they want and let us reap the benefits.

All its going to take is a Puig, Ryu or Walker announcement to have this set blow up. Not to mention a few more RC spots left. Maybe will see a Profar? I already think its equivalent if not a tad better than last year and we have a few spots left to fill and you know Topps is going to announce another big one or two before release. They always do, that’s how they add hype.

Looks great to me. After a few weeks of research I have decided on a player to collect from the prospect auto set. I figure I will keep picking up mid end Austin Meadows auto's for my "high" end collection. Pick up player x for what I hope is a lot cheaper than what the Meadows cards I collect go for

All in all looks like a very solid release. Will break a few boxes at the lcs for sure

I hope you're right. I've bought more of this stuff than I have in previous years, I just may have to sell it if this happens.

I would give this checklist an A minus at present.

If they were to add Puig and/or Walker, I'd bump it to an A.

This one is giving 2011 BCDP's auto CL some serious competition.

If Puig or Walker gets added this could be one of the best Bowman sets to date talent wise.

Speaking of Puig, he just hit a MONSTER shot off Straily.

Anyone who still thinks the checklist isn't that great should find another hobby. This is going to be huge.

Not in the same tier as some of the others listed but a good Dodger to add nonetheless. Really nice guy to boot.

Agreed. Just posting whoever is announced so we can round out the auto checklist.
