Wanted: 3 Cuban Bowman Chrome BB Cards

Sneak Peek: 2009 Bowman World Baseball Classic Rising Stars cards

JG: I want the Gourriel, Chapman and Enriquez cards, but remember, I do not have the kind of money that Felipe Sixto had when he was trying to bring "democracy" to Cuba. Since these cards will have a short print, they probably will not be cheap!

Topps announced on Wednesday the inclusion of 20 World Baseball Classic Rising Stars cards that will be included in 2009 Bowman when it arrives in early May.

Japanese pitching star Yu Darvish will be one player many collectors focus on as it’s the first card of Darvish released by an American company and he has a good possibility of pitching in the Major Leagues in the future. He has several Japanese cards produced highlighting his Japanese pro career.
