Bowman Draft.... this is a must buy for the baseball nut (such as myself!) One should receive a complete base paper set in the hobby box. Now, unless you know the prospects, 99% of the players in the issue will be unknowns to most of us. As has been written many other times, this is a set that should be collated, stored, and looked at several years down the road to mine the 'gold' in the Bowman Draft 2019.

The cards are in the same style as previous Bowman issues this year. Player collectors, rookie collectors, and set builders should like the issue. Master set builders might have one heck of a hill to climb with all of the various parallels - both paper and chrome.


Chrome

67 unique chrome base

This is a good building base for the set of 200. Depending on the collation, one could conceivably build the chrome set with as few as 3 boxes -- rare, I admit, but conceivably possible.

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

Overall grade A+ - complete paper set and great start on Chrome set...

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays chrome, chrome parallels, base parallels, and Rays autos to me!! ALSO should you pull a card or 6 of Mr. Josh Jung #7 (Texas Tech), let me know and we'll work some kind of trade!!

Thanks for the review Duane. These cards look nice. Always like prospecting. That Vaughn buyback looks stupid with the signature over the letters on the jersey. Please LMK if you have any extras of these

Nice review, especially the Riley Greene auto.

On a separate (ish) note, do you need a 2019 Topps Update Nate Lowe photo variation sp?

"NEED" is relative... do I have one? No, would I like to have one? Yes.. Need? no... so, yes, I would like the Nate Lowe photo variation sp.
