Guy is a BEAST...he has been so impressive, his 3-run homer last night was a beauty. I'd like to predict him for potential ROY candidate but I'm not sure what will happen when McCann comes back. Maybe they can platoon him with McCann but even then I don't think he would be able to compile enough stats to be eligible. The guy is so strong I bet he could still smash 20 homers platooning with McCann. Give this guy the chance to play everyday and he could surpass 35 homers.

Possibly, but unless some guys pop up out of nowhere, it will be painful to watch.

That's a big part of why it will be brutal. It is the one chrome prospect product that, sans 2011 when Harper carried an otherwise terrible product, is junk year in and year out.

even without considering the quality of the auto checklist, the break value per box just in terms of number of cards you get and variety of potential hits doesn't compare to regular Bowman (or BDPP)

That has got to be the last of the prospect autos....... Unless Topps has a big surprise up their sleeve which would be nice. The last two add to what is already an impressive checklist.

He was in '12 Draft wasn't he? No auto, just a base card if I remember right.

Yes, that's correct. I had him in a massive houdini break of 2012 draft.

Correct. He also has an auto in Sterling.

First they post the big names to get the hype and prices going, then they fill it with the guys that only a few want but many will pull.

Some great names in here for sure, but 40 prospect autos on the checklist. Man that is a lot, and the RC autos to boot.

Any word if those are replacing prospect autos in a box or are they an "extra" hit?

I am disappointed by no Red Sox (I know I havent mentioned it already) but I do like the checklist and it wont deter me from buying more than the one case I already have coming.

40 is a lot, plus the rookies.

BUT the silver lining in all this is we get a relatively completed checklist before release date....who knows if Topps screws us, but its good to see a close to completed checklist

If you happen to pull any of the above, I'd be more than happy to take them off your hands.

Consider it a favor from one of "the few".

(I should point out that nearly every one of these names were on my suggestion list. Make of that what you will.)

You can take them off my hands all you want, it still won't change a thing. Going to be hard to get anything of value for when you keep pulling the "filler" guys. I don't mind guys that are raw, or 4-5 years away from sniffing the big leagues. I do have a problem with the light hitting or at best #5 starter type players. It dilutes the product and guys like you scooping up these "leftovers" doesn't change that.

P.S Not trying to attack. I believe I do follow you on Twitter and enjoy the updates. You might have suggested some of these names, and some of them might have some nice stats. Problem is those stats will plummet when there skills can't match up against some of the higher level/MLB talent.
