Tyler Kolek And Kyle Schwarber Are The Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball Mystery Subjects

Topps just announced the two Mystery Base Card Redemption subjects in 2014 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball.

Collectors holding Mystery Redemption Card #1 can redeem it for second-overall 2014 MLB Draft pick, Miami Marlins pitcher, Tyler Kolek. Mystery Redemption Card #2 can be redeemed for Chicago Cubs catcher, Kyle Schwarber, taken fourth overall in the ‘14 MLB Draft.

These cards are the first featuring Kolek (GCL Marlins) and Schwarber (Boise Hawks) in their Minor League Baseball uniforms.

Kolek, a 6’5” athletic righty drafted out of high school in Texas, throws a fastball consistently clocked at over 100 mph, and is projected to become a front-of-the-rotation power starting pitcher.

Drafted from Indiana University, Schwarber has experience as an outfielder, but projects as a catcher in the Cubs organization. He uses his 6’, 240 lb. frame to his advantage, providing power and physicality on the diamond. In his first professional season, he smacked 18 home runs and drove in 53 in 72 games played.
