2010 Bowman Platinum - MLB
24 packs - 5 cards per pack
'2 Chrome Prospect Autos Inside! -- 1 Auto'd Relic Card in Every Box'
I received the following:
67 base cards - 67% of the 100 card base set - no duplicates!
The front of the card has a silver foil background and a digital action photo. The cards are highly reflective. The reverse has pro stat summary and a "Platinum Moment' of the player's career. The rookie cards have the RC designation on the front of the card.
44 Platinum Prospects -- 88% of the 50 card base set - includes 20 collegiate prospects...
The parallel card(s) are 3-4 times as thick as the base cards and they are numbered to 999 or 599 (gold)
PP47 S. Rodriguez - #ed to 999
PP48 G. Springer - #ed to 499
(both are refractors)
Bonus Auto Redemption
Jackie Bradley #ed to 50
2010 Bowman Platinum - MLB - this issue is a curious one. It was released in the retail version over a month ago and the hobby version came out just recently. One shop here in Orlando had a few boxes and another had only received a very limited number and they were all gone. Obviously, Topps wanted this issue to be a retail driven issue. Player collectors will have several cards to chase and set builders should not have a real difficult time completing the base sets. I received 67% and 88% of the sets in this one hobby box.
The autos - are on the card - excellent!! The patch is sweet - yet it has a sticker and it is not embedded ....
Overall grade A- I'm not a big fan of the silver foil cards.
Go buy several boxes and send the Rays and the Rays parallels to me!!
