Russell Wilson Card Coming to 2014 Bowman Baseball
The quarterback's rookie cards are among the hottest in the hobby. But his first cards actually came from the diamond. A former fourth round draft pick of the Colorado Rockies, Wilson found himself on the 2010 Bowman Draft checklist. The Rangers took Wilson in the Rule 5 draft in December. And while it's unlikely that he will ever play serious professional baseball again, it gave Topps a chance at offering a new card.
The card maker made the announcement via Twitter.

It reads like collectors can expect the card to be a short print, which will likely only further fuel the buzz.
2014 Bowman Baseball is scheduled to release at the end of April.
