The Topps Company has released two press releases about Yasiel Puig and his 2013 cards. The fever pitch probably has to do with his on field performance causing people to go crazy over these lucky redemption 4 cards from 2013 bowman. Just when you think the rookie card product market is going to suffer from the lack of a Bryce Harper or a Strasburg rookie, this guy comes along and makes everything better. Surely 2013 will be the Puig hype train year.
Here are the two press releases from Topps.
DODGER PHENOM IS BOWMAN LUCKY REDEMPTION #4
