Not a bad day's work! I've been waiting on a LaPorta chrome since I started collecting this particular set. I've pulled seven various Evan Longoria prospect cards before a single LaPorta chrome. The scanner effect on the chrome cards is pretty dope too.

I love this series and only hope that they can continue to release it in the future. It reminds me of the essence of baseball and why we collect. Sure, a large portion of these players won't storm onto the scene in the Bigs, but it's fun to watch these guys at the local minor league ballpark and even when their names pop up on the ESPN ticker. Good work, Bowman... my favorite series of 2007-08.

Boom... outta here.
