2014 Bowman Chrome - N F L

18 packs - 4 cards per pack
1 Bowman Chrome Rookie Auto per box

I received these:

Veteran Base - 28 unique cards
Rookie Base - 31 unique rookie cards





Bowman Chrome NFL is a good looking set. The designs on the vets and rookie cards are distinctive! The cards are obviously chrome - so they have a very bright and shiny front. The 'chrome' color is a bit different on the rookie cards - somewhat more silver - hard to see from the scans.

Each set is 110 cards - if one just wants to build a rookie set, no problem, just collect 111 thru 220. It is a good issue for the set builder and the player collector. There are lots of parallels to chase... here are the ones I received:

Inserts

Refractors



I BELIEVE these are the refractors - I received 2 of each - 2 vets and 2 rooks... Again, no designation - 'refractor' anywhere that I can find on the cards.... what's up with that?

Parallels

2 Black refractors - #ed to 299



R. Matthews
Richard Rodgers

Pulsar and Bubbles



Pulsar #ed to 271 - J. Matthews
Bubbles #ed to 99 - Bishop Sankey

Die Cuts



Bowman's Best
Clowney -- West

Mini



Bridgewater

Topps Shelf



Jordan Matthews

Auto



Derek Carr #ed to 10

Curious auto.... it's an x-fractor and a variation. The photo is one that is used on Bowman Sterling - not his regular Bowman Chrome card.... I do believe this one is rather special....


********************

From what I am told, one out of every 4 boxes has an extra auto.... now whether or not you get that one box.... 25% odds???? Don't know, if you are like I am, I choose one of the boxes in the stack - I believe that lowers my odds - could raise them, no clue.

I like the mini die cuts. They look good. The black refractors are also good looking cards.

Overall grade A- still want the 'refractor' designation somewhere on the card...

Go buy several boxes and maybe you'll get the lucky box with 2 autos...

Good looking cards - thank you for the review.

Duane first thank you for the review. I agree this is a nice looking set. I am not fond of the copy cat insert from baseball but over all great looking cards. Awesome hit on the auto xfractor Carr I love the raiders as well as steelers so that is a nice hit to see. Again thank you for the review can't wait to see the next one

Duane, thanks for the review. Any chance the bold #'s on the back bottom are different for the refractors??
Some designation would be nice. Would be interested in any Steelers if available. Thanks Butch

I hate the Raiders, but I like the look of that Carr auto.
