Check Out Yasiel Puig's First Licensed Baseball Card

The excitement surrounding Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig can not be overstated.  He is slugging his way into the hearts and minds of Dodger fans everywhere - even to the point of hearing loud choruses from fans for his immediate promotion to the big club. 

Will he end up in LA before the season is done?  I dunno.

All I do know is that Topps has just released the very first licensed Baseball cards for him in their 2013 Bowman card set and I have pics to prove it.  As you may know, he has already been put on cardboard (2012 Leaf, 2012 Rize Draft, and 2012 Leaf Metal), but those cards were unlicensed and therefore without the desirable Dodgers team logo.  So, beginning this week we finally have some cards with him wearing Dodger Blue.

In this years 2013 Bowman set he has two different cards.  See them below.  The first card is a Top 100 Prospect insert card.  A die-cut refractor card parallel card exist, as well.

Here is a Chrome Refractor 'Cream of the Crop' Mini insert card.  These cards are a little smaller than your average card.
