First Taste of 2017 Bowman

I was able to swing another trade on The Bench for all of the 2017 Bowman Cardinals base cards minus the Chrome prospects.

I like the look of 2017 Bowman.  It is simple and clean, although the logo would like better if it was a solid circle.  I was surprised not to find Molina or Wainwright included in the checklist.

These 4 prospects are all ranked in the Cardinals top 10.  Flaherty is having the best season of all so far.  In his first year in Double A, he is 5-0 with a 0.69 ERA.  Alcantara has not been as effective, going 2-2 with an ERA over 6.  Dejong and Bader are both playing for the Triple A Memphis Redbirds who recently had a 10 game winning streak.  Both will most likely be September call ups.

The trader was nice enough to include this 2013 Five Star Ozzie Smith.  This card is thicker than most relic cards.  I thought this was some type of parallel, but it is a base card.  I am not a fun of the high end sets like Five Star, but it is nice to get one of the cards anyway.
