2009 Bowman WBC Update

Posted by houstoncollector on March 19, 2009

It looks like Topps is really keeping up with the WBC, announcing that 2009 Bowman will have an exclusive 20-card insert set titled World Baseball Classic Rising Stars, which will feature the first US-published baseball card of Japanese star Yu Darvish.  All 20 cards in the subset will be released with all of the parallels of the other Bowman cards.  Currently, there’s no information on pull rates on these, but I’ve contacted Topps and hope to have an answer soon.  A full list of the stars can be seen as follows:

Yu Darvish Japan P
Phillippe Aumont Canada P
Concepcion Rodriguez Panama OF
Michel Enriquez Cuba 3B
Yulieski Gurriel Cuba 3B
Shinnosuke Abe Japan C
Gift Ngoepe S. Africa OF
Dylan Lindsay S. Africa P
Nick Weglarz Canada OF
Mitch Dening Australia OF
Justin Erasmus S. Africa P
Aroldis Chapman Cuba P
Alex Liddi Italy 3B
Alexander Smit Netherlands P
Juan Carlos Sulbaran Netherlands P
Cheng-Min Peng Taipei OF
Chenhao Li China P
Tao Bu China P
Gregory Halman Netherlands OF
Fu-Te Ni Taipei
