Yet Another Bowman WBC set
Recently, Topps put out the Bowman Draft Picks And Prospects set which included one more World Baseball Classic subset (don't think it could be considered an insert set - I bought two packs and got four WBC cards!). This set has 35 cards including six players from Japan - Norichika Aoki, Yu Darvish, Munenori Kawasaki, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Ichiro and Seiichi Uchikawa. All of the photos are "mugshots" like the one of Darvish above (#BDPW2). I think this is the only card of Kawasaki in all the WBC sets.
I'm guessing that this is the final WBC set for the 2009 games, so I'll try to do a wrap up of all the sets in the next few weeks.
