Since Topps left Puig out of their Series 2 flagship set, they decided to make up for the mistake by including him in their 2013 Topps Pro Debut minor league set that comes out this coming Wednesday. Check it out above. Pic via @ToppsCards on twitter. As you can see he is sporting a Rancho Cucamonga Quakes uniform. Who's willing to bet he has a second card in the set with him wearing a Chattanooga Lookouts uniform?
In all likelihood, Puig's recent omission from the Series 2 set had more to do with timing rather than poor planning. They restrict who can be in their normal Baseball card set to those who are on the Major League roster. So, considering the lead-time necessary to design, print and package a set Puig's recent ascent did not give them enough time to include him. I am certain, though that he'll be in their Update set that comes out at the end of the year.
