Bowman Platinum is an exceptionally shiny look at the future of baseball. While many top products feature current stars, prospects reign supreme in 2014 Bowman Platinum Baseball. It comes as no surprise that the hot list for the current edition of Bowman Platinum is youth-filled.
Like most 2014 baseball products, Jose Abreu and Kris Bryant remain the top collecting options. Although Bryant's 2013 Bowman Chrome cards were already included in 2014 Bowman Inception Baseball, they make another appearance in 2014 Bowman Platinum and remain in high demand, with prices hovering around $400.
It is not just about these two hobby stars, however. With 42 players and deep checklist, the Prospect Autographs set is a great place to locate a wide variety of potential studs. See a full guide to all the cards here. With all on-card autographs, minimal redemptions, and lots of color and rarity, values have been strong.
In addition to the Prospect Autographs, collectors have shown considerable interest in the autographed relics, namely the jumbo options. A Superfractor jumbo patch for Byron Buxton sold soon after release for $1,250. Plus, there are still plenty of other rare cards, including the Bowman Black autographs and multi-player autographs, as well as the one-of-one Prospect Bat Plates and Purely Platinum Autographs.
2014 Bowman Platinum is not just about baseball stars. Super Bowl quarterback, Russell Wilson, is included in the Toolsy insert for Arm Strength. Although it is not signed and values will not likely push very high, collectors tend to take note of options like this.
With three autographs per box, including one autographed relic, and a price tag around $90, there is a decent shot at hitting something big and this has collectors trying their luck.
The following list showcases the 50 most-watched 2014 Bowman Platinum Baseball auctions currently on eBay. The list is constantly updating to display the top cards available, so check back often to track your favorite players or just to check out the biggest hits.
