All You Need to Know About the 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs

All You Need to Know About the 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs

Since rookie and prospect autographs became the focal point of Bowman Chrome, one autograph was the best guarantee collectors could hope for as a hobby box guarantee. Jumbo boxes have long offered more, but they're also a lot more expensive. Topps has also experimented with offering random extras, but one was the only promise. That changes with 2014 Bowman Chrome Baseball, at least momentarily. The set marks the first time autographs are promised two per hobby box. Jumbo boxes have five total autographs. Although 2014 Bowman Chrome has more autographs besides the basic prospects, most are tough to find.

The 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs checklist is huge, coming in at 73 cards. Signers are a mix of recent draft picks, international free agents and players who have been working their way through the minor league ranks for several years. As always, it's going to take time for the premier players in the set to emerge. At the same time, many of them will be flops. The risk and hunt for the exception are things that attract collectors to prospecting with cards.

2014 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs come with on-card signatures. They also have several Refractor parallels that add rarity and more of a chase to the product.

We've gone through the Prospect Autographs checklist and created some handy resources to help you figure out if this set is for you. The player guide portion also outlines important info about each prospect as well as links to their MiLB stats and profiles.

User Comments

  1. Baseball Reference lists Reyes at 17 years old while milb.com lists him at 19, Padres also have him as 19. If this is the case that makes Herrera the youngest player with an auto in the set

  2. Tyler ┬╗ Thanks for the heads up. Will go with the direct source, in this case the team.

  3. No wonder they have two autos per hobby box, that is a very weak set of autos as a whole.

  4. Kris Bryant also has 2014 Bowman Chrome autos as well as 2013 Bowman Chrome Draft autos and refractor and color refractor autos in the set.
