As such I decided to take on a semi-daunting undertaking. Obtaining at least one official card of the 2015 New York Yankees Draft Class (that actually signed with the Yankees). This excludes guys like Deacon Liput or Andrew Miller (a different Andrew Miller) who were drafted by the Yankees but didn't sign. If a player only has an official card from his pre-Yankees days like Isiah Gilliam that WILL count. If a player does not have an official card but I made a custom and got it signed, it does NOT count (I just included some of my customs to serve as placeholders). This is only for official cards.
James Kaprielian and Kyle Holder are both present and accounted for.
Took longer but, here's Jeff Degano's first official card.
Drew Finley (the name on the official card is a typo, lol) has a few cards in a few Leaf products as well.
Jeff Hendrix possesses Gold Glove caliber defense.
Chance Adams is one of the two 2015 Staten Island Yankees I never got an autograph of. Grrr. He does not have a card yet either.
From Pags to Wags.
Damn bruh, look at those forearms.
Donny Sands does not have an official card. Yet.
Ryan Krill will Krill the competition next year. Yeah I'll see myself out.
Lefty who says a lot of interesting stories in the bullpen.
Josh Rogers, surrounded by darkness, is present and accounted for.
Terrance Robertson does not have an official card yet.
Trey Amburgey does not have any official cards yet but after the way he hit every ball that was thrown to him to kingdom-come in 2015 I suspect he'll have an official card soon enough.
Will Carter really didn't do a whole lot in 2015, I guess the Yankees wanted him to take the first year easy and see what they have in him in 2016.
"If he was allowed, he'd get (Ricky) Vaughn's lightning bolts shaved into the side of his head." - Dustin Dopirak on 15th round selection Bret Marks.
Kolton Mahoney has a heart of gold. Just look at how he even brightens up the background of his own card.
Brody Koerner has a card in the Pulaski Yankees team set.
The Zack (Zehner) Attack will continue in Charleston come 2016.
Mark Seyler will unfortunately be out for a while as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.
Isiah Gilliam has a few unlicensed cards by Leaf out there. Unfortunately I haven't picked any up yet.
Josh Roeder had a magnificent beard before joining the Yankees org.
Cody Carroll, the Pulaski Yankees team set came through big time.
Garrett Mundell, the Pulaski Yankees team set came through big time (again).
Patrick O'Brien does not have an official card yet.
Austin Afenir, the Pulaski Yankees team set came through big time (again x5).
Icezack Flemming does not have an official card yet but with a name like that, he'll have one soon enough.
David Sosebee has a Pulaski card. And like the others it's kind of grainy.
Kane Sweeney. Saved by the Pulaski set yet again. Although the picture is still grainy.
Chad Martin was promoted to high-A Tampa near the end of the 2015 season after call ups shook the entire balance of the Yankees org. He does not have an official card yet.
Hobie Harris, despite the fact that he made it to high-A in 2015, does not have a card yet.
Alex Robinett received a card in the 2015 SIY set after he was promoted to Charleston. A little after that he was deployed to the army. May he return safe and sound.
Christian Morris was promoted to high-A Tampa as part of a huge roster shakeup near the end of the season after September callups came into effect. But he does not have an official card out yet.
Alex Bisacca came to Staten Island near the end of the 2015 season. He does not have an official card yet.
Dustin Cook does not have an official card yet.
And that concludes the 2015 draft class that did sign with the Yankees.
Of the 35 humans who were drafted by the Yankees and signed, only 12 have yet to be immortalized on cardboard. I foresee Degano getting a card as early as this October. With everybody else a maybe late in 2016 in various team sets spanning across Pulaski/Staten Island/Charleston and possibly Tampa.
Anyway this is my first attempt a recreating a draft through cards and my first attempt at a quasi-frankenset so wish me luck. As it stands I'm 22/23. Here's to hoping the remaining 12 have cards released soon.
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
