A First Look At The Top Rookies In 2024 Bowman

Bowman has long been product-driven by prospect and rookie cards. 2024 Bowman is no different, as fans will see many rookie card logos while breaking packs.

But who are the top rookies in 2024 Bowman? And does this look like a good rookie class to invest in?

Let’s take a first look at the top rookies in 2024 Bowman!

Bowman: The home of the rookie card

For many years, Bowman has used the tagline “the home of the rookie card”. With modern rookie card rules, it’s really become “the home of the prospect card”. While the 1st Bowman card holds a place of esteem in the hobby, there’s still something to be said about a player’s Bowman true rookie card.

Bowman rookie cards have the potential to have significant value, especially if the players featured get their career off on the right foot.

While base cards are always nice, it’s worth noting that the parallels of the top players are the ones most likely to command top dollar, so those should be the cards you’re most on the hunt for.

The 2024 Bowman set will contain 100 base cards and will feature rookies and veterans, and 150 prospect cards. Of those 100 base cards, 43 will feature the rookie card logo as a player’s rookie card.

But who are the best rookies in 2024 Bowman? And is this a good rookie class? Let’s explore a few of the top names that collectors will be hunting for in packs when 2024 Bowman releases in early May 2024.

Jasson Domínguez CF New York Yankees

2024 Bowman Card #17

With shadows of Mickey Mantle, Domínguez burst onto the scene in September of 2023 and took the sport by storm. In his first 8 games, he hit 4 home runs and drove in 7 runs, slugging .677 with an OPS+ of 158.

He then tore his UCL and required surgery that will keep him out of action until after the All-Star break. When he’s back, he’ll be looking to pick up where he left off.

Junior Caminero 3B/SS Tampa Bay Rays

2024 Bowman Card #20

The #4 ranked prospect in the game according to MLB.com, Junior Caminero got a short taste of the big leagues in 2023, appearing in 7 late-season games with the Rays. Despite starting the 2024 season in the minors, look for the 20-year-old Caminero to return to the big leagues soon, potentially for good.

Elly De La Cruz SS Cincinnati Reds

2024 Bowman Card #22

When he made his debut in June of 2023, De La Cruz took the game by storm. While his numbers slipped as the season went on, the talent is very clearly there. De La Cruz hit 13 home runs, smacked 7 triples, and stole 35 bases in only 98 games in 2023.

Yoshinobu Yamamoto SP Los Angeles Dodgers

2024 Bowman Card #36

The 25-year-old from Japan has signed a record contract and is poised to make a big splash in the big leagues in 2024. Could he win the Rookie of the Year and the Cy Young Award?

Evan Carter OF Texas Rangers

2024 Bowman Card #46

Carter, 21, burst onto the scene late in 2023 and helped lead the Texas Rangers to a World Championship. It’s hard to imagine a better start to a young career, but Carter looks like a player who could make an impact for a very long time. Ranked the #5 prospect in the game entering 2024 by MLB.com.

Noelvi Marte 3B/SS Cincinnati Reds

2024 Bowman Card #80

Another impressive young Reds position player, the 22-year-old infielder impressed in a 35-game cameo in 2023. Unfortunately, an 80-game PED suspension will delay his return to the big leagues and likely take some of the luster off the MLB.com #20 prospect’s cards, at least for a while.

Pete Crow-Armstrong CF Chicago Cubs

2024 Bowman Card #85

The 22-year-old went hitless in a 19 plate appearance cup of coffee in 2023, but those in the know expect much more from the fleet-footed outfielder. Ranked #11 on the MLB.com pre-season prospect list.

Jordan Lawlar SS Arizona Diamondbacks

2024 Bowman Card #96

The 21-year-old shortstop is the #11 prospect on MLB.com’s pre-season ranking. The 6th overall pick in the 2021 amateur draft is part of the youth movement in Arizona that’s already paying dividends.
