2024 Bowman Prospects Cubs

 There are 150 cards in the 2024 Bowman Prospects set, but just three of them are Cubs.  And as usual, there is both a paper and chrome version of each card. 

All three of these prospects have been in the Cubs organization for just a year.  Shaw was the team's selection in the first round of the 2023 draft while Rivera was taken in the third round.  Valdez was an international free agent signed out of the Dominican Republic.

And where are they now?

Shaw is moving through the system quickly and is with the AA Tennessee Smokies.  He's struggling at the plate right now, with an average in the low .200s.  Rivera is his teammate in Tennessee and he too is having hitting issues with an average even lower than Shaw's.

Valdez is with the Cubs Arizona Complex League team.  The Cubs are taking it slow with him as he is just 18 years old.

  1. I've only heard the base version being referred to as the "paper" version for maybe a year or so. I assumed it was a card bro thing and it seems to only apply to I haven't heard Topps flagship referred to as "paper".
