    That's a lot of stickers.

    2013 Bowman Baseball Ultimate 25 Prospect Autograph Book RARE SSP | eBay

    25 autos on one booklet. Price guess? $1500? $1800? $3000?

    One of the dumber ideas Topps has. The only way that card is going to be worth something is if there are 3 to 4 HOFers on that card. Then it will be watered down by players who had good-mediocre-to poor MLB careers on top of guys who never even made the show.

    Here's what this card would have looked like if it came out in to 2004. I took the top 25 prospects from 2004. I put them qausi-order of the biggest names:

    Joe Mauer, Prince Fielder, Zack Greinke, Cole Hamels, Justin Morneau, Adam Wainwright, B.J. Upton, J.J. Hardy, Rickie Weeks, Delmon Young, Grady Sizemore, Gavin Floyd, Edwin Jackson, Ervin Santana, Scott Kazmir, Bobby Crosby, Scott Hairston, Jeff Mathis, Dustin McGowan, Jeremy Reed, Andy Marte, Chin-Hui Tsao, Adam Miller, Greg Miller, Jason Stokes!

    I agree completely, but in the short term it will sell well as every player will still have potential.

    If you would take 2005 as an example instead of 2004 it would look a lot more appealing....

    Yeah, right now it's an awesome line-up. That value has nowhere to go but down.

    I'm intrigued to see how they could possibly make 25 autos in one book look good

    There is NO WAY this card ever gets made. Topps will string the person along for 2 years or so and then send them some BS replacement. Look at the Blowout thread where 2 members with other high-end Topps multi-player autos have been waiting well over a year with no end in site
    Currently looking for the following:
    -90's Bagwell and Biggio rare inserts & parallels
    -Carlos Correa, George Springer
    -2015 Heritage HN Action RCs of Correa, Bryant, Lindor, Syndergaard, Gallo, Buxton, Russell, Rodon

    The sell sheet says there will be "up to" 25 sigs on this one card.

    It'll get made....the question is how many sigs will be on it.

    You have more faith in Topps than I do. They love putting cool items like this on the sell sheet and then they sit back and bank on collectors forgetting and moving onto the next product. Where are those Mays/Aaron/Griffey Golden Ticket balls??

    This is probably similar to the 2011 Panini National Treasures Football Rookie 36-Panel Booklet...which was a stretch as to what an "actual" booklet card appears to be.

    If Topps does this right, it will truly be a booklet with full spine edges, not the comically weak Panini solution of adding plastic tabs to connect 36 separate cards. Granted, binding together 36 thick rookie patch autographs would be an incredibly difficult task...but possible...and Panini chose the innovative route to what they've claimed as "the World's Longest Trading Card." As expected, some have broken up these gimmicks and sold the individual cards.

    Which brings us back to Topps. 25 players on a single booklet is absolutely possible and fairly easy assuming the stickers monsters have had their alignment vitamins the day they build it. Again...assuming stickers, although on-card would make the card easier to build as more on-card signatures can appear on a panel than stickers.

    Hoping that Topps does it right and actually makes it look like a true "booklet" card.

    Agreed 100%.
    This card never surfaces, ever.

    And the last 14 names would be?
