Dansby Swanson in 2016 Bowman Baseball – in an Atlanta Braves uniform
On the eve of the release of 2015 Bowman Draft, an unprecedented move was made in Major League Baseball – the Arizona Diamondbacks traded the 2015 top overall pick, sending shortstop Dansby Swanson to the Atlanta Braves.
Swanson’s first Bowman card appears in 2015 Bowman Draft, and he is also depicted on the box cover. But every image of him on the box and in the product shows him with the Diamondbacks – the team that drafted him.
When the trade was announced, the Bowman team scrambled to get Swanson into an Atlanta Braves uniform for 2016 Bowman Baseball, which comes out next April. Now, 2016 Bowman Baseball will include a base and an autographed card of Swanson in an Atlanta Braves.
While Swanson’s first Bowman card pictured him in a Diamondbacks uniform, his first card of him in an Atlanta Braves uniform will be coming soon.
