2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs Gallery

When collectors think of modern Bowman autographs, often it's the prospects. However, 2012 Bowman Baseball has a handful of rookie autographs that have been given the Bowman Chrome treatment. Each of these black-bordered cards is considered an official rookie card, although most do have prospect cards and signatures from earlier years that are just as desirable, if not more so, on the secondary market.

However, with such a strong rookie crop in 2012, there are many high-profile on-card autographs. The checklist is led by the likes of Yu Darvish, Jesus Montero, Matt Moore and Dellin Betances. 2012 Bowman Baseball has a total of 12 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie cards.

A last-second checklist change saw Jeff Locke (#204) added to the checklist. Chris Parmelee (#219) was originally slated to have an autograph but he does not.

The 2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs have several Refractor parallels as well. Basic Refractors are numbered to 500. Most of the Blue Refractors are numbered to 150 (Yu Darvish is numbered to 250). Other Refractors include Gold (#/50), Red (#/5) and one-of-one Superfractors. The set also has Printing Plates.

2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs combine with Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs to fall at least one per hobby box. A gallery of the entire set is below as well as details on any previous Bowman-brand autographs they may have.

  1. My first case purchase- went for three jumbo- and not a single Darvish, Moore, Pomeranz, or Montero autograph. :(
