Topps adds final four signers to autograph checklist in 2011 Bowman Draft

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

With Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects set to release in two months, Topps has finalized the autograph prospect list.

The four final players added to the list Monday included three of the top 10 picks from the 2011 MLB First-Year Draft.

Bubba Starling, Dylan Bundy, Archie Bradley and Taylor Guerrieri add to the long autograph checklist. Of the 34 signing for Draft Picks and Prospects, 33 of them are first-round picks, including the supplemental round.

There is one on-card Chrome autograph guaranteed per box.

In addition to the current prospects, Bryce Harper will have an on-card autograph card in the set, which was previously announced. Harper will also have a relic card from the Futures Game, numbered to /69.

Now, if we could just find out the identities of the prospect base set (all are blank on the sell sheet), as well as the AFLAC autograph insert set, we’d be good to go.

I wonder why Gerrit Cole didn’t make this list.

Only 2 of the top 7 picks? For shame Topps. The real saving grace is that this is a deep draft class. I would expect 2012 Bowman to have a majority of the remaining 5 of the top 7 that they missed and should be a pretty strong product as well.

Michael Pineda is on the box but he isn’t in the product checklist as a signer? Or did I miss something?

Attn: The Card Investor – Bauer, Bundy, Starling and Bradley will all have autos in here, so it’s 4 of the top 7, not two.

Attn: Nick Tegeler – In the past two years, Topps saved the #1 draft pick of one year for the wrappers of next year’s Bowman (see Strasburg and Harper). Cole will be no different.

How is Dustin Ackley not on the signers list? I know the Mariners are terrible, but really?

Sorry nm, I was thinking this was a regular Bowman set. Disregard.

“Attn: The Card Investor – Bauer, Bundy, Starling and Bradley will all have autos in here, so it’s 4 of the top 7, not two.”

I stand corrected. I forgot to include 2 of the just announced signers since Beckett did not add the names to the checklist below the article. I guess I’m just disappointed Rendon is not included.
