Jose Fernandez 2014 Bowman – Cuba State Variation

Jose Fernandez 2014 Bowman – Cuba State Variation

After nabbing and showing off the base card of Jose Fernandez from this year’s Bowman base set, I immediately sought out more cards of the reigning NL ROY.

And the first one that I grabbed was the ‘State’ version.

And I guess in Fernandez’s case, it could be tagged as the ‘Country’ version since he was born in Cuba.

Here is the card:

Fernandez’s story is unreal – and full of emotion.  I’m proud to have this card as it truly embodies who he is as a player and a young man.  And something tells me that he would probably crack a smile if he saw this card – he certainly has great memories of living in Cuba with his family, and he also has some incredible stories to tell about his journey to the US from there.

A fantastic, and instant classic, for my Jose Fernandez collection!!!
