2008 Playoff Contenders Baseball Revisited

2008 Playoff Contenders is one of the true hidden gems of the last decade of prospecting products. Within it are some of the games great up and coming young prospects, many of them with auto's. That may not seem like a very big deal, but it is when you consider many of them still don't have a Bowman Chrome Auto. Big time prospects like the Phillies' Dominic Brown, the A's Michael Taylor, and the Mariners' Carlos Peguero still haven't made an autographed appearance on Bowman Chrome stock.

Mike Stanton did have a 2008 Bowman Chrome Auto, but his Playoff Contenders auto is worth nearly 4-times as much due to it's microscopic print run of 149. Stanton isn't the only big time prospect with a Contenders Auto that can contend with Chrome. Another odd bonus to '08 Contenders is the presence of Derrick Rose and O.J. Mayo Auto's, both of which are numbered to 88! We take a look at some of the best cards 2008 Playoff Contenders Baseball has to offer collectors. Next to each card is the book value, but the book makers dropped the ball as usual, many of the cards below consistently go for 2-4 times book.
