Bowman Draft - M L B

24 packs - 7 cards per pack
1 Prospect auto per box

I received these:

Draft picks - 65 unique paper base
Top Prospects - 45 unique paper base





In the same vein as it's predecessors this year, Bowman Draft has the same style and design as the regular Bowman - bright white stock - glossy finish. Action shots on front (duh!) and stats on the reverse. One has to watch the numbering - TP for top prospects and DP for draft picks.

Chrome Parallels

CDP - 25 unique cards
CTP - 13 unique cards



4 - 4 - 4 sets in one box.... The chrome parallel set of each will be a great set(s) to chase. It will probably take 5-6 boxes to have enough for each set, but should be a rewarding build.

+++ Side note - along with the jumbo boxes this year, ( 3 autos, 12 packs, 30 cards per pack) a super jumbo has been produced - 5 autos and I don't know how many cards and packs... huge box of cards...

Inserts

Draft Notice - 2 -- Gordon, Chavis
Draft Day - Marlins - Koler/Anderson
Scout Breakout - Johnson



Refractors



8 Total - 4 CDP and 4 CTP

Again - no definitive markings designating refractor -- make sure you look carefully at your chrome parallels...

Blue paper and Ice paper parallels

Blue - Tapia #ed to 399
2 Ice -not numbered

Blue Chrome Parallel



Aramis Garcia #ed to 399

Mini Chrome and 89 Reprint chrome



3 minis
1 89 reprint chrome - Hoffman

The mini's are my favorite inserts... don't really know why, they just look cool.

Rookie/Prospect Auto



Forrest Wall

On card - blue Sharpee, on card auto -- looks fantastic!

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

Bowman Draft - as I have written in other reviews, Bowman Draft is one of those issues that should be bought, collated, and stored for several years. Then, break it out and see who has made it to the bigs and who didn't -- and how much some of those prospects/draft picks might be worth -- Pujols, Trout, etc....

Overall grade -- A- lots-o-sets in one box... maybe chrome to hobby and paper to retail?

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays parallels to me ( it's gonna be years before they are worth anything!)

Thanks for the review Duane. Nice looking cards, and its seems some Marlins prospects are included. Would love the Draft day Marlins card and any of these DP's.
