2010 Bowman Baseball
24 packs // 10 cards per pack
"2 Bowman Chrome Cards in every pack"
"1 Bowman Chrome Autographed Card Per Box!"
I received the following:
Regular Base 1-220 -- 88 unique base cards
Topps again has a winner - especially if you want to pick up some of these. Prices, so far, have begun to sky rocket on this issue. The base cards remain much the same as in the past several years - black borders, red outline for vets and green outline for rookies on the front. The reverse has red for vets and green for rookies.
Chrome 1st Year Cards - 1-110
41 unique cards
The 'chrome curl' seems to be coming back a bit this year. The selection of 1st year players is igniting the desire among collectors for Bowman. I saw an Orange refractor of Strasburg go on eBay last week for $854... sadly, I did not pull one of these.
1st Year Cards 1-110
44 unique cards
Bowman Throwbacks - 12 of 110
Topps 100 - 12 of 100
Bowman Expectations - 8 of 50
These 3 inserts will be fun to work on and complete. I really like each of these - they are something a little different.
USA National Team
USA 18 Team
National Team - 4 of 22
USA 18 - 2 of 20
These cards are all chromes.
Gold parallels - unnumbered?? -- 24
Orange parallel - BP99 - Thomas Neal - #ed to 250
Blue Parallel - 106 - James Loney - #ed to 520
BC66 - Kyle Jensen #ed to 777

Lots-o-cards in this box! Parallels, chromes, refractors, colored refractors (blue, orange, red), golds, Bowman Throwbacks, Topps 100, Bowman Expectations, auto, USA National and USA 18 cards!!! Every collector out there should be able to find something in this issue.
The autos - have to be the best - the autos are blue Sharpee on the card - the way it should be done!! Excellent!!
Also included in this box are checklists - 1 thru 5.
Overall grade A+ - great on card autos!!
Go buy several boxes and send the colored refractors of the league leading RAYS to me!!
