Topps confirmed on Tuesday that Oakland A’s pitching prospect Michel Inoa was pulled from 2008 Bowman Sterling.
The move means the 16-year-old Dominican right-hander’s only officially licensed MLB card comes in 2008 Bowman Draft (above; misspelled name not corrected). Inoa was one of the 18 prospects who signed Chome cards for that product.
Inoa had been slated to appear in the Sterling Autographed Prospects set — and appears on the checklist — but the card was not produced.
Inoa has signed cards for TRISTAR (officially licensed minor league cards) and has appeared in Donruss sets as well.
