Yu Darvish sighting / Bowman Chrome

YuDARVISH

I’m kind of going into 2009 Bowman a bit blindly. I’ve not read a bunch of reviews, but given the fact that box prices are already under $60 at Dave & Adam’s, I’m guessing this product features a list of lackluster prospects. If I’m wrong, someone tell me.

Anyhow, that didn’t stop me from buying a single back at Target the other day while buying my wife’s birthday gifts. Based on the headline of this entry, you can guess what I pulled … the card on the left.

The rest of the pack was pretty un-eventful. Base cards were Cliff Lee, Andre Ethier, Mark Teixeira, Rich Harden and Chris Young; Gold parallel of Scott Kazmir; Base prospect Michael Stutes; WBC Base Alex Liddi (Italy), Chrome prospect Michael Swinson; and of course the Darvish Chrome.

For some reason this card made be extremely excited. Probably because it was one of the cards I was hoping to acquire this year. Getting it in the first pack was great.  Judging by eBay sales, it’s not worth a ton, but it’ll take a nice spot in my “rookies” box. Every time I hear this guy’s name I think of this damn Soulja Boy song. I’m not really a hip hop guy — used to be in the 90s — but this song is really catchy.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
