Product Review

2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball Product Review

Reviewed By Chuck Vanderbilt

Good:This set is geared towards fans of chrome cards with a design that makes even the base cards look like refractor inserts. It lends itself to prospectors seeking autographs. The prospect autographed cards are indeed on card as most collectors prefer, although autographed relic cards are signed on stickers. The Gold, Green and Ruby Red parallels look especially great.

Bad: The big knock on this year's set has to do with the checklist. Although Topps uses disclaimers, many collectors were furious when players on the early checklist weren't in the final product. Topps isn't safe from customer angst. Many were put off by the last-minute checklist changes and release delays.

The Bottom Line: 2011 Bowman Platinum may look great to collectors, but for most enthusiasts what makes a product "good" is the final checklist. You'll be hard-pressed to find many who were happy with this year's set, mainly due to the uncertainty and changes leading up to the release.

Staff Rating:
2.9 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.0/5.0

Sleek designs with a refractor finish make 2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball look great. The Ruby Red parallels really stand out among their Gold and Green counterparts.

Checklist: 2.0/5.0

Last-minute checklist changes were the downfall to 2011 Bowman Platinum. Only the presence of a Bryce Harper autographed chase card and a few top prospects like Jameson Taillon give the checklist any thump.

Value: 3.0/5.0

With one relic autograph and two prospect autographs per box, 2011 Bowman Platinum had the makings of a great value for prospect collectors. However, even the top players in the set aren't commanding the same secondary prices as other Bowman products.

The Fun Factor: 2.5/5.0

Some collectors complain about products that have too many inserts and parallels. The opposite could be argued for 2011 Bowman Platinum as it doesn't provide enough variety. However, there is some fun to be had anticipating a Bryce Harper or a favorite prospect.
