2015 Snorting Bull Awards: Best Prospect Set

I have already made one post for my annual Snorting Bull Baseball Card Awards which I have given out the last two years.  Aside from using categories I have already used in past years, I am also going to be presenting a few new awards this year.  This post, and the attached award for Best Prospect Set, were not given away last year.  As a fan of Minor League baseball I am excited to present this award.  

2015 Best Prospect Set 

Pro Debut 

There were a few different sets that I considered for this award, but I had to give this first time award to the Pro Debut product.  First, it showcases the players in their Minor League uniforms.  I like Bowman and always go out and put the set together, but it neat to see some of the prospects the way I, as a Minor League baseball enthusiast, see them.  Uniforms aren't the sole decider though.  I also like that the Pro Debut product uses action shots of the players and not action shots.  It's cool to see some of the Minor League parks as backdrops for the cards.  Lastly, I like that there is a diverse checklist in Pro Debut.  Some of the players in this set are just good average Minor League players.  Pretty cool to see some of them still get a baseball card.  The set also has autographs and parallels and all of those other things.

  1. I agree entirely - minor leaguers should be shown in their MiLB duds, not crudely photoshopped into a uniform for a franchise they may never even suit up for.
