2011 Bowman Platinum - M L B
20 Packs - 5 Cards per pack
2 Chrome Autographed Cards and 1 Autographed Relic Card in Every Box!
I received the following:
70 original and unique base cards - 70% of the set
11 Bowman Prospect cards - 11% of the set
This premium issue features a full bleed action photo on stiff stock. The front has a high gloss and resembles a refractor. The reverse has stats both pro and personal along with a 'Platinum Moment'.
The prospect set might be a small hill to climb - receiving only 11 cards in a box - one would need to purchase 10 boxes to have enough for a set -or it's off to ebay or Sportlots to complete the set.

Platinum is a good issue for the player collector - base, gold, green, red, blue, some numbered and ever Xfractors (with a pattern - very good!!) If I could make a change, I would have numbered each of the colors to make them even more special.
This is also an excellent issue for the up and coming players - many of which I have never heard of, but hopefully one day, one of them will be outlandishly great and the card will be worth a zillion $$ (especially with this economy!!)
I really like the autos on the cards - they look great - blue Sharpee on the card!! The auto / relic is a sticker card - at least this one is.
Overall grade A
Go buy several boxes and send the Rays parallels to me!!
