Default Topps Signs Catching Phenom Buster Posey

TOPPS SIGNS CATCHING PHENOM BUSTER POSEY



Topps announces it has signed minor league catching phenom Buster Posey to an autograph deal. Posey, the 5th overall pick by the San Francisco Giants, is considered by many to be the most talented player selected in the 2008 Amateur Draft.



Posey will make his debut as an Autographed Base Card in the much-anticipated 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Baseball.



Each $3.00 pack of Draft Picks & Prospects includes 7 cards (4 Bowman, 2 Bowman Chrome, and 1 Parallel card). And each box guarantees 1 Autographed Chrome Prospect Card.

You can keep Donruss if there is a chrome rookie auto.

well you're right- I am sure it will be much better looking with 80-/20 centering..
Dont most of the 2007 Elite base Autos sell approximately for the same as Chrome Base Autos?Its the Bowman Chrome Parallel Autos that make teh difference and those are becoming more and more impossible to pull with overproduction

Little off-topic but why isn't Pedro Alvarez listed for either DPP or donruss? Is it that bleedin' contract issue with the Pirates?

Because Alvarez has yet to sign with the Pirates. He might end up back in the draft next year which will really hurt Pittsburgh.
