This would have been some nice RC additions:

Matt Harvey
Jurickson Profar
Mike Trout (so some people who can't afford the 2009 can get a nice Bowman on-card auto)

This is a good thing, folks.

1) It greatly increases your chances of hitting prospect autos. Many complain that's why they rip BC when they pull RC autos, anyway.
2) None of these RC autos are scrubs (and are likely to be SP'd), thus increasing the value of the product as a whole.

Hopefully we'll find out the identities of the base prospects tomorrow. I've heard Topps will be making one Bowman Chrome related announcement per day until the street date, just as they did with Bowman.

Great news for bowman chrome breakers. Bad news for bowman draft breakers (i.e me), as the added Harper and Darvish autos may dilute the market for their bowman draft autos.

So let me get this straight...Yu Darvish is going to have Bowman Chrome RC autos in 2012 Bowman, 2012 Bowman Chrome and 2012 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects?

I can see that as well. I am sure they will add some sort of twist to Draft to make the appeal be there with the rookie autos.

Miley and Chen are the most glaring omissions...to be fair, Bundy and Profar would've been tough to sneak in there. Harvey and Machado would've been excellent additions.

So will Bogaerts have a true rookie auto in 2012 chrome or was his "prospect" auto his rc auto?? I don't follow baseball enough to keep up with bowmans product.

If I am correct, he can't have an auto with the "RC" logo yet cause he hasn't played in the big league yet. I'd say his most desired auto, and what I consider a rookie auto, is the 2012 Bowman one. Its not the "true" one but I still consider it a rookie auto.

No Chen, no care.

If you guys thought Darvish auto prices were crazy when they first came out, that would be nothing compared to Chen prices if they do put him on the auto checklist. Chinese collectors be crazy, yo.

If he's not on there, then facepalm@topps.

Appreciate the insight...what about possible autos in here?? Or was 2011 bowman the only one...

So this should be Middlebrooks first Bowman Chrome auto, correct?

If his auto is truly short printed, I could see his card getting a similar treatment like Lawrie and Hosmer did in the last offseason.
