Baseball Cards Wiki

2008 Signs of the Future was an insert set in 2008 Bowman. The cards were inserted into retail packs at an overall rate of approximately 1:24 retails packs and as a box topper in HTA Jumbo boxes. The cards were not inserted in regular hobby packs according to Topps. Officially the cards were released in an A and B groups, but Topps has not released which cards fell into which group. Jose Mijares did not return his stickers in time and thus was packed out as an exchange card that could be redeemed until 5/31/2010.



The checklist for this particular Signs of the Future is one of the weakest. While many of the players in the set did end up playing some ball at the MLB level, none of them turned out to be stars. Several teams did not have any representation in the set, including the Yankees.
