2014 Bowman Inception Baseball CardsBrand: Inception
After successfully bringing the brand over to the diamond in 2013 and giving it a Bowman spin, collectors shouldn't be surprised to see 2014 Bowman Inception Baseball. Focusing on prospects and autographs, it delivers a lot more high-end content than the base Bowman brand. Every single-pack box of the all-hits product comes with four autographs and an autographed relic. All 2014 Bowman Inception Baseball content revolves around rookies and prospects.
Prospect Autographs and Rookie Autographs come with on-card signatures. Like all Inception sets, they have heavily filtered, stylized photos and bold backgrounds. There's a wood theme to the design in 2014. Prospect and Rookies are easy to identify. Prospects come with a vertical layout while Rookies are horizontal. Both come with eight levels of numbered parallels: Gold (#/99), Blue (#/75), Pink (#/50), Green (#/25), Red (#/10), Purple (#/5), Printing Plates and Inception (1/1). Prospects also have Inscription Autographs that are numbered to 10.
Numbered to 24, Silver Signings use bold silver ink signatures over top of a dark background. Parallels include Metallic Red Ink (#/5) and Gold Ink (1/1).
Inceptioned Bowman Autographs take the regular 2014 Bowman design and run the cards through the Inception filter. Hard-signed, these are numbered to 35.
The cross-brand, multi-year Bowman Black Collection (#/25) continues with a new batch of silver-signed cards.
Autographed Relics are the only cards in 2014 Bowman Inception Baseball to use sticker autographs. Besides basic versions, these cards have nine color-based parallels numbered to 50 or less. Basic relic pieces are replaced by patches for many of the rarest parallels.
Dual Autograph Patch (#/10) and Triple Autograph Patch Cards combine signatures and swatches from multiple players.
One-of-one Autographed MLB Silhouetted Batter Logo Patch and Autographed Letter Patch Book Cards (#/2) round out the rare content in 2014 Bowman Inception Baseball.
The 1989 Bowman Is Back Silver Diamond Refractor program continues, as it will with all 2014 Bowman-brand sets. These are inspired by the 1989 Bowman Baseball design, the year Topps brought the brand back.
2014 Bowman Inception Baseball also features a contest where one collector wins a trip to the Under Armour All-America festivities in Chicago.
