2013 Bowman Chrome Baseball CardsBrand: Bowman Chrome
2013 Bowman Chrome Baseball uses a formula that has worked for years. Take the latest rookies, a generous dose of prospects, lots of color, and top it off with autographs. While the overall feel may lean towards continuity, the set has some new inserts and different spins.
Every 2013 Bowman Chrome Baseball hobby box comes with the standard one autograph. Adding a little unpredictability is the addition of a second signature in every third box. Most of these fall under the Chrome Prospect Autograph and Chrome Rookie Autograph banners. Both have several Refractor parallels: Blue (#/150), Gold (#/50), Orange (#/25), Purple (#/10), Red (#/5), and Superfractor (1/1), as well as Printing Plates. Prospect Autographs also have basic Refractor parallels numbered to 500.
The 2013 Bowman Chrome Baseball base set has 240 cards, 190 veterans and 50 rookie cards. Arriving with a similar look are 110 Prospect inserts. These cards have a Refractor structure that's similar to the Chrome Autographs with a couple of exceptions. Basic Refractors are not numbered. Blue Refractors come numbered to 250 and Purple Refractors are numbered to 199. Gold, Orange, Red and Superfractors all come in the same quantities as autograph parallels.
Risin' Thru the Ranks is a mini chrome insert that spotlights one prospect from every organization. Emphasis is put on those who are fast-tracking their way to the majors. Autographed versions are numbered to 25.
Some highly touted prospects live up to the hype. Others flop. Fit the Bill Die-Cut cards focus on veteran players who followed through on the high expectations placed on them. Basic versions are numbered to 99. Autographed Refractors are limited to 25 numbered copies.
Carrying on from other 2013 Bowman-brand sets are Bowman Black Autographs (#/25) and 65th Anniversary Sapphire Refractors that spotlight some of the top Bowman rookie cards in the brand's history. Autographed versions are numbered to 5.
2013 Bowman Chrome Baseball is rounded out by redemptions for game-used All-Star Futures Game hats. These are exclusive to hobby boxes.
