While the main pieces are still in place for collectors, the 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball format has certainly seen an overhaul. Hobby boxes are now issued as dual mini boxes that offer two autographs and the return of the vending box allows for quick breaks and three autographs per box.

Featuring veterans and key rookies, the 100-card base set is joined by a bevy of Refractor parallels. This includes base Refractors, as well as Purple Refractor (#'d), Blue Refractor (#'d), Green Refractor (#'d), Gold Refractor (#'d), Orange Refractor (#/25), Red Refractor (#/5), SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1) to chase.

Bowman Chrome Prospects grow the main set with the up-and-coming stars in baseball. Falling two per hobby pack and 33 per vending box, these prospect cards are a key component of both formats. Coming as no surprise, prospect color is abundant in 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball, including several exclusives. Among the options are base Refractor, Black & Gold (Vending), Orange Shimmer (Hot Pack - Vending), Blue Shimmer (Hot Pack - Hobby) Blue Refractor (#'d), Green Refractor (#'d - Hobby), Gold Refractor (#'d), Orange Refractor (#/25 - Hobby), Red Refractor (#/5), SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1).

On-card autographs for the key young names are the main draw for collectors in 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Highlighting the rising stars, Chrome Prospect Autographs feature RefractorBlue Refractor (#'d), Green Refractor (#'d), Gold Refractor (#'d - Vending), Orange Refractor (#/25 - Hobby), Red Refractor (#/5), SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1) parallels. Similarly, the Chrome Rookie Autographs come as RefractorBlue Refractor (#'d), Green Refractor (#'d), Gold Refractor (#'d), Orange Refractor (#/25 - Hobby), Red Refractor (#/5), SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1) parallels.

Other signed card choices include Prime Positions Autographs that point out the notable young players across the diamond. The insert is further enhanced with Green Refractor (#'d), Gold Refractor (#'d), Orange Refractor (#/25 - Hobby), and SuperFractor (1/1) and parallels. All-America Game Autographs offer signed cards from prospects while they were still in high school.

Part of an update that makes Bowman Chrome the only place to find Arizona Fall League (AFL) content, 2015 AFL Fall Stars Game (Hobby) covers top names and is exclusive to hobby boxes. There is also a Jumbo Relic version for the AFL Fall Stars that includes large pieces of game-used gear.

Additional inserts in 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball include Bowman Scouts' Updates dedicated to rising prospects and Out of the Gate (Hobby) which centers on rookies that produced early noise in the league. Refractor that Never Were provides the familiar technology to all-time greats who missed out this modern aspect of the hobby. In addition to limited signed versions, collectors can also find basic parallels. Bowman Scouts' Updates works with Blue Refractor (#'d), Gold Refractor (#'d), Orange Refractor (#/25), and SuperFractor (1/1) while Refractors that Never Were includes Orange Refractor (#/25) and SuperFractor (1/1).

Product Review

2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Trey Treutel

Good: Two on-card autographs per box, AFL insert line brings additional element, Out of the Gate inserts have a fun design.

Bad: Weak Prospect Autographs checklist, odd choice to make secondary Chrome base set from main Bowman.

The Bottom Line: Because of the timing every year, Bowman Chrome is the middleman between the other primary Bowman sets. As such, the checklist quality dips and relies more on the chromium appeal to get by. The cards look great as usual but the signers list is lacking. Compounding that issue is the fact that set collectors now have to purchase two different box formats to make both base sets.

Staff Rating:
3.3 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.0/5.0

Something about the 2016 Bowman frame design still feels a little too distracting for me but the Chrome technology does help soften that somewhat and the white/light border pops out more than base Bowman. As far as the Refractors, because nearly all are numbered, this makes them much easier to spot.

Bowman Chrome clearly revolves around the Prospect Autographs and it has been easy for the rest of the set to feel thrown together and stale. In my opinion, the Arizona Fall League inserts help this aspect. Not only because they bring someting new in several AFL insert options but also because the design is heavy on orange and red and immediately stands out. Another insert that catches the eye in a good way is Out of the Gate, which offers the visual of top young rookies breaking through a stone wall.

Of course, the most obvious strength of 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball is the expected hard-signed chromium. This winning combination is enough to always guarantee interest from collectors.

Checklist: 2.25/5.0

In most recent years, the issue with Bowman Chrome is always the same. Given that it sits between base Bowman and Bowman Draft, the checklist never seems to match the quality collectors would like. 2016 is no different. Heavy on international signings and limited early-round draft picks, few names jump out. Still, options like Vladimir Guerrero Jr. do give collectors something to hope for from the set.

Another thing that plays into the checklist discussion is the decision to include a skip-numbered Chrome version of the main Bowman set as a Vending box exclusive. I don’t quite understand this move as it doubles up base cards for multiple players and also means set collectors have a lot more work to do. It’s one thing if the look is completely different but the Chrome version of Bowman is nearly the definition of Bowman Chrome. At least separating the sets by format keeps it from becoming total confusion.

Value: 3.0/5.0

Bowman as a whole is about the prospects. Although we never know who will be a breakout star or a bust, the best formula for immediate and long-term success is high draft picks and talented international players. 2016 Bowman Chrome is light on both and that hurts the value. Sure, the Chrome factor, Refractors and on-card autographs help, but the core is watered down.

The Fun Factor: 3.75/5.0

I found 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball to be a fun break. I came across an appropriate amount of Refractor color for my preference and even pulled a signed insert parallel for a top prospect. I also liked the Out of the Gate and AFL inserts, which add something appealing and distinct to the release.

Like most Bowman brands, 2016 Bowman Chrome Baseball also has the built-in fun of potential stars that might take years to emerge. It’s a different kind of anticipation but this enhances the overall experience for me and many others. The main issue is that Chrome alone does not make this set feel worthwhile. Base Bowman already has Chrome prospects and so does Bowman Draft. Given that both also normally have better checklists, I expect BC to do a better job standing apart in other areas. The extra autograph helps but that is not enough.

User Reviews

  1. Look Topps I love Bowman Chrome as much as the next guy. I have loved it since 1997. But COMMON. Why are we getting cards of David Dahl, Forest Wall, Reese McGuire, Austin Meadows, Tyler Beede etc?

    These guys ALL have Bowman Chrome cards in former sets.

    Where are the cards of Luis Urias, Austin Slater, Greg Allen, Peter Jake, Kyle Wren, Jon Kemmer, Jordan Yamamoto? Those are names of a few guys who have NO chrome cards. Some of those guys are in triple A

    Who is picking your checklist? Get a real baseball scout on your dang payroll. Have him look at some stats and get us some new blood in this set.

  2. So far figured out that the AFL autographs have at least a /150 auto and a /50 auto

  3. The AFL set has numbered cards, I pulled a Raimel Tapia numbered to 150, are there any other parallel’s ?

  4. What is the difference where you state in the beginning of the Chrome base & the Bowman card base?? The first is # 1-100, the second 1-150 but skips numbers. How would one build a set if you can only find certain cards in certain boxes? I tried a 6 pack mini hobby from card shop and like this years. Picked up Matt Reynolds auto /499 (expected 1 a box) and Kenta Maeda Out of the Gate /150 amongst other decent stuff.

  5. Matt Marciano There are essentially two different base sets. The 100-card Bowman Chrome base set is found in hobby packs and is the normal thing you would expect to find from BC. The skip-numbered set is the Chrome version of the main Bowman set from earlier in the year. These are only found in vending boxes.

  6. If you are trying build a set you will have to buy
    several of each hobby and vending and the price
    is way to high for what little cards you get .

  7. Two of the same auto in one box. Drafted RD 10 2011 JUNK!!

  8. Trey,

    Any idea who the mystery redemption is?

    Love the cards…Buy a case of each every year…

  9. Too many junk prospect autos that are duplicated in every case. Topps got lazy with this one. Cards look nice as usual.

  10. Don’t waste your money, too hard to make a set, can’t see #’s for White, Bishop, & Moore, should not have to look up check list to see what # they are. Regular boxes & vending machine boxes just add to confusion. Autos are not that exciting. The scary thing is how bad are they going to screw up Draft.

  11. i was looking into some of the prospect cards trying to find out about Yoan Moncada. Saw his card on Ebay numbered BCP 148, but the checklist starts at BCP 151, did they add new players after the release? if so how can i find out what new issues there are?

  12. The main Bowman releases are part of a three-part product line: 2016 Bowman (https://www.cardboardconnection.com/2016-bowman-baseball-cards), 2016 Bowman Chrome and 2016 Bowman Draft (https://www.cardboardconnection.com/2016-bowman-draft-baseball-cards). Moncada BCP148 is in 2016 Bowman.

  13. Love the hobby boxes this year! Didn’t want to give a full 5 stars though because of how Bowman named and numbered the series this year. I can see by the previous questions that others were as confused as I was to begin.

    You ARE NOT getting the same product if you purchase the Hobby box vs the Vending box. The vending box is a compliment to the original 2016 Bowman Baseball series; all cards are in Chrome, but are essentially a common parallel to the base series.

    Bowman Chrome hobby boxes have their own base set of players and prospects and are numbered differently than the BowmanBaseball & ChromeVendingBox cards.

    Sticking with hobby boxes and purchasing the base set of “Chrome” parallels from the vending boxes online if I really need them to complete the set for the year!
