2 of Baseball's Best Prospects dual AUTO

The Pirates farm system has vastly improved over the past couple years.  They've increased their scouting in the Latin America communities and we've already seen one of those players (Starling Marte) impact the major league roster.

MLB recently updated their top 100 prospects in baseball and the Bucs have 5 prospects in the top 100.  More importantly they have 2 of the top 15 prospects in baseball (Jameson Taillon and Gregory Polanco).  3 of the Pirates top 5 prospects are latin players (Gregory Polanco, Alen Hanson, and Luis Heredia).  The Pirates continue to rise through the standing thanks to a great farm system of homegrown talent.
2013 Bowman Inception DUAL AUTO Gregory Polanco and Alen Hanson 5/25

When this card was tipped off to me, I knew I had to pull the trigger on it unless it went over triple digits. Well, it barely went over triple digits which was hard to accept.  However, if these guys pan out as planned, this card could be the equivalent of a Jimmy Rollins/Andrew McCutchen dual autograph as those are the comparisons of the players.

I'm now officially done with Bowman Inception after acquiring this card.  I have the Gregory Polanco, Alen Hanson, and Barrett Barnes.
