2015 Bowman Draft Baseball CardsBrand: Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects
2015 Bowman Draft Baseball hones in on the game's latest picks. It continues with the tighter focus that started in 2014 on the draft itself rather than prospects that have MLB cards already. As with past years, hobby boxes promise one autograph.
The base cards are done with both regular Bowman and Bowman Chrome. While 2015 draft picks make up the majority of the content, there are other prospects as well. Serial-numbered paper parallels include Blue, Green, Gold, Orange (#/25), Red (#/5), Printing Plates and Metallic (1/1). On the Chrome side there are Refractors a plenty. Besides basic Refractors, there are new Blue Sky, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange (#/25), Red (#/5), Printing Plates and Superfractors (1/1).
Chrome Draft Pick Autographs are likely to be the central chase element for most collectors. Featuring players from the 2015 MLB Draft, these are their first MLB autograph cards. For most, these will be their most popular cards in their careers. Signatures are all on-card. They have a similar slate of Refractors as the base Chrome cards.
Prime Pairings Autographs are dual-signed cards where a 2015 pick is paired with another prospect. Base versions are done on chromium stock. They also have Red Refractor (#/5) parallels.
Similar to the AFLAC Autographs in past years are All-America Game Autographs that have been collected in the past at various high school showcase events. One-of-one Gold Frame parallels are new this year.
2015 Bowman Draft Baseball has several basic inserts that dig deeper into the 2015 draft class. Draft Night shows pictures from the event. In addition to the regular versions are Orange (#/25) and Red (#/5) parallels. Teams of Tomorrow is a die-cut set that pairs a draftee with another prospect from the same organization. These have four parallels including Superfractors.
Draft Dividends is new to the set. These look at players who were drafted once out of high school, passed up that chance to go to college and ended out coming ahead once their schooling was done. The set has autographed versions as well.
All-Star Futures Game Relics are the only memorabilia cards in the product. They come with jersey swatches worn in the game. Base versions are numbered. As are the Orange parallels that are limited to 25 copies each.
New to 2015 Bowman Draft Baseball are Top of the Class box toppers, which are jumbo chrome cards of top picks from the draft. Orange Autograph and Orange Wave parallels are both numbered to 25. Red Wave (#/5) and Superfractor (1/1) parallels are also randomly inserted.
