In 2003 Topps put out 10 Future Stars cards featuring 20 players. How did they do. Let's see.
I'm prejudiced being a Cubs fan but I'd have to say Marlon Byrd has been a success. He was 4th in ROY voting in 2003 and was an All-Star last year. In his 10th season he has a lifetime average of .282.
Tex has averaged over 30 HR and 100 RBI for his 9 seasons and has four Gold Gloves as well.
Rene Reyes hit .220 in just two seasons. He's still a star in the Mexican league.
Marcus Thames, mostly a part-time player has a .246 average over his ten seasons with 115 HR and 301 RBI. He has an outstanding HR to at bat ration of 1 to 15.4.
It would be funnier if not for Brandon's serious offense but this card does feature Puffer and Bong. Very funny, Topps guy.
Jung Bong went 7-4 with a 517 ERA in 48 games over 3 seasons in the majors. Since 2007 he has been playing back in Korea.
