November 23rd is only a week away which means we are only a week away from 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects baseball which gives you another chance to pull a Bryce Harper rookie autograph. Of course, Bryce Harper is obviously the main attraction but there will be 30 other rookie autographs for you to chase along with the several parallels and the addition of autographed Futures Game relics as well.
Each pack of this 24 packs per box product will feature 2 Bowman cards, two Chromes, one parallel, and two Futures Game stars or Team USA cards. You will also find at least one Chrome autograph and maybe a bonus hit of an autograph from a player on Team USA. The autographs will be paralleled quite a bit with regular refactors, blue, gold, orange, purple, red, printing plates, and of course, the highly collectible superfractor 1 of 1.
The regular base set will only have 3 parallels with blue refractors numbered to 499, reds numbered to 1, and printing plates. But the Chromes will have all their standard refractor goodness with regular refractors, blue, gold, orange, red, printing plates, superfractors, and the Canary Diamond 1 of 1s celebrating Topps 60th birthday.
Finally, the new addition is the inclusion of Futures Game jerseys with regular jerseys, jumbo patches, regular patches, and even some Logoman 1 of 1s. Imagine pulling the first Bryce Harper logoman or other hot rookies like Mike Trout or Paul Goldschmidt.
While I am not a prospector, I know what kind of value Bowman and Bowman Chrome brought this year so I am expecting a success from this product as well.
Here is the preliminary checklist which probably changed a little bit.
Better yet, just got a hold of the 2011 Bowman Draft & Prospects Final checklist!!
