Many people will argue that the 1999 Stadium Club Matt Holliday is second to  his Bowman Chrome rookie. Its ability to make it as a standalone brand has many cards to thank, including this one. Featuring a colorful background pattern, gold accents and a die-cut player image makes the card pop. 2002 Bowman's Best also has Refractor and Atomic Refactor parallels.

The 1999 Bowman Chrome Matt Holliday rookie card provides a bit more value than the Topps flagship base rookie card. It has a close-up body shot taken at an upward angle with Holliday is extending the barrel end of a bat straight towards the camera. Heavily graded due to the popularity of the Chrome brand, even in high grade it isn't terribly expensive. Parallel Refractors are also available.
