I wouldn't put it past Topps to release an image to hype stuff up and get a few more pre-orders in. Then pull the carrot back, seems like it worked on some of us.

So confusing. The 2013 is live while the 2014 is a mock.

Does this mean the players we assume are in draft (based on their pictures) may not be in draft either?

My goodness the 2014 design is terrible.

I'd be soooooo happy if Bryant is in Draft.

Yeah, looks like Topps just sent him this card and I would guess it's not serialized at all. 2014 Bowman will be his first main chrome auto.

Yea this is just stupid. To me, this is just as good as Topps tweeting this and then retracting it. In this day and age, can't it be assumed that a new prospect would want to show off his cards that he is going to/supposed to sign?

Makes no sense to me. I didn't order because of Bryant, but it would have been a nice little bonus.

Do you guys think Appel or Gray have a better chance of being in draft??

i'm really hoping Gray is in it.

At this point, I don't feel comfortable to say anyone is or isn't in draft.

I've been an avid supporter of Topps for a while. LOTS of things happening this year that are really making me cross the line into not pre-ordering anymore, or only do it for one case. Future is bleak for case breakers right now.

Yep...this year has been awful and next year will be worse. 2013 Draft will be my last pre order. I'll stick to group breaks and singles. Time to let others deal with the risk and false advertising.

I may start joining group breaks as well for the first time. Just doesn't make sense to spend 2k on a product, only for Topps to increase production 50% and not be clear about what is even in the product.

If I pre-order at all next year, it is ONLY for products that I do not care about the return as much. Will not be pre-ordering products based on potentially making my money back.

This makes me wonder if Frazier is legit. As I was initially hinted from someone within Topps that Meadows would be draft and Frazier would be '14. But again, it was someone at Topps so who knows who to trust anymore. I'm following the rest and stopping with the pre-order crap.

God I hope Frazier is 100% in. After finding out he was in I pre-ordered a ton...

But with all those colored autos he has to be right?

Frazier is legit. Those cards are all signed.

Read Bryant's tweet. He references one (singular) card and thanks Topps. My guess is they did him a favor and created a single 2013 card for him to have as a keepsake. Also, the photo they used doesn't seem like one they'd put in a release -- isn't it more likely they'd use an action shot?

I wouldn't put money in it, but I still think the first Chrome auto will be '14 Bowman.

i take "card" as in his first card in a MLB uniform not one card given to him as a gift. the super shown also has "topps certified autograph issue". seems like a silly gift to me. these "keepsakes" cost money to create. i highly doubt topps is passing out gifts to all these players...

Here's the convo:

Draft 2 Dynasty ‏@Draft2Dynasty 22h
@TheJudge44 always good to hear. know if you have any baseball cards coming out this off season?

@Draft2Dynasty yea, I signed a lot so there should be many out this off season!

Funny I see this here as that is twitter account. Asked about the photo as well didn't get a response yet. Most likely bad timing on the question. Usually get a reply if I get him right after he tweets something

They did this with a few cards last year as well. I remember someone tweeting out an unsigned Gregory Polanco 2012 Bowman Chrome auto and, obviously, it never made it into that. That was the last time that I pre-ordered a case...
