Tonight the NLCS kicks off in St Louis with the Cardinals hosting the LA Dodgers . The RedBirds seem to return to the playoffs every year and always seem to have a good influx of new talent. One of those players is Matt Adams.
2010 Bowman Prospects #14 Matt Adams
Adams has been on my radar for a while. He and my Wife both have roots in a rural area of Central Pennsylvania. He played college ball at Slippery Rock Univ - which is Division 2 Baseball. Kudos need to be given to the Cardinals for digging down to the lower levels of the collegiate game to find talent.
2010 Bowman Prospects
Matt Adams was drafted in 2009, so if this isn't Adams' first card it has to be close - indeed it does specify that it is his "1st Bowman Card".
2010 Bowman Prospects is a 110 card insert set within 2010 Bowman. The Insert set is a noted within the hobby because it contains the debut card of Stephen Strasburg, who (unlike Matt Adams) has never played in the Postseason.
