The Tyler Colvin Watch- Cubs Prospect

When the Chicago Cubs leave their spring training home in Arizona and head to the Windy City, 24-year old outfielder Tyler will be making the trip with them. Today, Lou Pinella announced that Colvin has made the Opening Day roster after hitting an impressive .468 in 62 AB's, scoring 12 runs and driving in another 13.

There are currently a plethora of autographs from the recently released Topps Finest available on the secondary market. However, his first major autographs released in 2006's Bowman Sterling and 2007 Bowman. I went ahead and picked up a copy of the Bowman on-card auto, currently his only one. As is the case with all prospects straddling the line between being featured on a licensed trading card sans officially designated 'RC Logo", time will tell how the market reacts in determing what constitutes his "real" rookie card.

Good luck and congratulations on making the club!
