Dansby Swanson, the first overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft, and Brendan Rodgers, the third overall pick, will both have cards in 2015 Bowman Draft including their first on-card Chrome autographs. Due out December 9, the prospect-product features autographs from players in the early stages of their pro careers.
Earlier this fall, Topps added Swanson and Rodgers cards as ‘mystery redemptions’ in its 2015 Heritage Minors set.
In addition to the big signers, Topps says 2015 Bowman Draft will have no redemptions. All autographs will be live on the day of release.
“We’re excited to have players of this caliber in 2015 Bowman Draft,” said Bowman brand manager Zvee Geffen. “Bowman is home to the first cards of many great players, and Bowman Draft wouldn’t have been complete this year without Swanson and Rodgers.”
Swanson, a shortstop in the Arizona Diamondbacks farm system, and Rodgers, a shortstop in the Colorado Rockies system, will both be featured in multiple Bowman Draft autograph subsets, according to Topps.
More signers will be announced later.
