Bowman's Best is a premium issue printed on stiff stock with high gloss photos. This should be an excellent issue for the set builder, the rookie collector and the player collector. The set builder will need 5-7 master boxes to receive enough for the base sets and still have quite a number of autos and other inserts to either sell or trade.

The refractor set builder might find this to be a fun set to chase. Still don't know why Topps does not indicate in some way which cards are refractors ???? One does receive a good number of refractors in the master boxes.

I really like the High Definition cards - they are very thick and come one card to a pack. They look great!

The autos -- each one I received is on card and in blue Sharpee -- very well done and as it should be in a premium issue!!

Cracked Ice refractor - very nice card!! Should be an excellent parallel to chase for your player sets, rookie cards, and team sets!

Overall grade A

Go buy a few master boxes and send the very few Rays cards to me!!

Nice review - never been a Bowman guy, but these look really nice. Had to do a double take on the Mariano Rivera AU - thought you had hit the jackpot.

These look really nice. Good, clean, on-card autos. Did you have any Cubs available for trade? I could probably find some Rays stuff for you.
