Cash is back and 2021 Bowman Baseball is launching this week. The checklist has
72 players. The big issue that has people buzzing is the amount of prospects
that signed second autos. This is not new but double digit second autos is most
likely here to stay with the demand so high. Overall this checklist is solid
with a mix of international prospects that are projects and middle ranked
prospects. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
