The 2013 Bowman Baseball wrapper redemption caused quite a frenzy when the set hit shelves. Within a few days, Topps announced they had run out of packs. But there's a big reason why these wrapper redemption packs went so fast -- they're loaded. The randomly inserted 2013 Bowman Chrome Blue Wave Refractor Autographs will likely be some of the most popular and valuable autographs of the year, at least for ones that have somewhat widely attainable odds.
2013 Bowman Chrome Blue Wave Refractor Autographs are numbered to 50. The checklist parallels the Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs checklist. According to Topps, all 42 signers from the main set have Blue Wave Refractor Autographs. Highlights include Byron Buxton and Carlos Correa.
Autographs aren't in every wrapper redemption pack, although they are somewhat common. Besides unnumbered basic Blue Wave Refractors and their autographed counterparts, 2013 Bowman wrapper redemption packs also have random Red Wave Refractors. These are numbered to 25 and are not signed.
Given their distinct look, small print runs and non-traditional distribution, all three versions of these cards have become popular, particularly with prospectors and team collectors.
