While multiple formats are no stranger to the hobby, 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball still adds a new wrinkle for collectors. In addition to the main hobby box that offers a traditional assortment of base and parallels, along with one autograph per mini box, the new HTA Choice format only includes autographs, delivering three per box.

Continuing from base 2017 Bowman, 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball is essentially part two of the prospect-laden brand.

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball Base / Parallels

Detailing the standout veterans and '17 rookies, the base set is joined by the Bowman Chrome Prospects subset. Both deliver lots of color to chase with the Prospects adding hobby-only Shimmer parallels at one per box. A full parallel breakdown is shown along with where to find them:

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball Autographs

Without a doubt, autographs are the biggest draw for 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball and that starts with the on-card Bowman Chrome Prospects Autographs that build on the multi-set 2017 Chrome Prospect Autograph line. The Chrome Rookie Autographs are also hard-signed. Both come in a familiar rainbow of choices, indicated below. Exclusive signed prospect parallels with a unique pattern are also in play, but only in the HTA Choice boxes.

Each offers one-of-one SuperFractor parallels while Sensation Chrome adds a hobby-only Orange Refractor (#/25) and Prime Chrome has a HTA-only Orange Refractor (#/25). There are also All-America Game Autographs.

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball Relics

While memorabilia inserts are not normally a huge component of BC, Hobby boxes of 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball are the only place to find Chrome Autograph Relics and 2016 AFL Fall Stars Relics. Both include Orange Refractor (#/25) and  SuperFractor (1/1) parallels. In addition, the Chrome Autograph Relics insert has numbered Gold parallels and 2016 AFL Fall Stars Relics works with Autograph versions.

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball Inserts

The chromium set also showcases a selection of inserts, again based around top prospects. 2016 Arizona Fall League Fall Stars looks back to top AFL moments with limited Orange Refractor (#/25) SuperFractor (1/1) and Autograph parallels. The MVP Short Print is exclusive to Hobby and honors Willie Calhoun with an SP image.

Bringing 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball to the past, Refractors that Never Were provides new options for those without Bowman Refractors, including numbered Autograph parallels.

Lastly, Bowman Scout's Updates checks in on the young studs already showing promise in 2017. These too include Orange Refractor (#/25) SuperFractor (1/1) and Autograph parallels.

Product Review

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball Product Review

Reviewed by Trey Treutel

Good: Refractors and hard-signed prospect autographs (duh); HTA Choice format is interesting; variations add a little more base depth without going overboard.

Bad: No standout inserts; not the greatest Chrome Prospect Autograph lineup.

The Bottom Line: Although it makes a few changes, 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball is mostly more of the same. For many prospect collectors, that is likely not a bad thing. The checklist could obviously be stronger, but the lure of the next big thing keeps collectors coming back.

Staff Rating:
3.5 / 5.0

Card Design: 3.75/5.0

The ’17 Bowman design has grown on me and I like the 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball look even more, especially compared to 2016. Refractor parallels are as striking as always (especially Shimmers), and can offer more of a framed look for those who prefer that.

There are even on-card Chrome Autograph Relic cards to chase, which is pretty sweet. However, I do feel the design is out of place.

One thing I am missing from Bowman Chrome is a cool insert. The AFL set is fine but it seems like there is a void. It would have been nice if the Chrome Sensation Autograph set came in an unsigned base version to spice things up a bit.

Checklist: 3.0/5.0

A yearly issue, the Bowman Chrome checklist falls in a tough spot as normally the obvious misses from the prior year, plus any new names of note, are covered in the main Bowman set, and recent draftees are saved for Bowman Draft. There are some bigger names to chase in 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball like Francisco Mejia, but there are also repeats and it’s nearly impossible to provide team collectors a fair assortment across the entire league.

The rookie autograph for Cody Bellinger is a nice boost for the checklist, but it is not enough to overcome the lack of an Aaron Judge signature. However, some collectors may appreciate this because it cuts out the demand and subsequent price increase attributed to Judge in 2017 sets.

Not normally associated with variations, Bowman Chrome provides these in 2017 but focuses on the rookies rather than the prospects. The SSP images aren’t exactly amazing, but I think the total number of 15 (including Judge) is solid, and I’m fine with the rarity of roughly 1:10 master boxes.

Value: 3.5/5.0

2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball had solid value out the gate but as a prospect-based release, it all depends on the current hype around the checklist. While that is not peaking at this moment, things can change in a hurry. Hobby boxes are priced in the $80-90 range at the time of this review, which is down from release.

The tricky part about the value for almost any Bowman set is that prospects are a rollercoaster. What’s driving sales now could be an afterthought in a few months. Helping value, though, is the fact that it’s not even about pulling a top player, as a low-numbered BC parallel for almost any player can can save a break. Naturally, the odds are stacked against you for anything limited, but the potential is there.

Although it does not meet my collecting needs, the HTA Choice format is intriguing for those who don’t care about anything but the autographs. The exclusives found in these boxes also add a little more incentive. These are priced higher than hobby but do have an extra autograph in place of all the base and inserts.

The Fun Factor: 3.75/5.0

On the plus side, I liked the design and I always go for Chrome and on-card options. The main negative for me in the fun department is the lack of a striking insert line. The mini-box format does allow for a little more excitement since you know each delivers an autograph, and just 12 packs in a full box means you aren't overwhelmed with base cards.

User Reviews

  1. Seems like they are leaving out quite a few auto’s of up and coming superstars. Rhys Hoskins, Kevin Cron, Ryan O’Hearn to name a few.

  2. Hopefully Blake Rutherford will be in this product

  3. Are they putting this product back in retail?

  4. does any one think bellinger will have a RC card in this..or only prospect cards ? I know Judge will be and anything he is in is flying off shelfs.

  5. correction needed: in the all american game autos you have zach puk but it should be zach collins easy error with aj puk right there just wanted you to know keep up the great work

  6. Looks like classic Bowman retreads of the top 100 or so players from the past 2-3 Bowman sets. Some new faces like Jorge Ona, Brandon Marsh, and Tomas Nido to name a few. But COMMON Topps, do we really need MORE cards of Clint Frazier, Jorge Mateo, Nick Gordon, Ryan McMahon or Eloy Jimenez? With 1000000000 minor league players out there MANY in triple A ball without cards why must we see the same players year after year? I will probably buy a box or two, but Bowman Draft is the way to go.

  7. Are there no printing plates?

  8. Brian: I would imagine there will be Printing Plates but we don’t add anything to the checklist until it has been confirmed. Since there was no mention of them on the sales sheet, we won’t know for sure until we see the pack odds.

  9. 4 stars….No Judges auto in this product?

  10. Disappointing. The prospects list looks like a retread of players that already have cards. I don’t have any motivation of buying this. There has to be a licensing issue on why so many SF Giants never even received a Bowman card that are already in the majors. Austin Slater is the latest, not one Bowman card (except the AFLAC). I’ll save my $$ for draft.

  11. Too all of the people that constantly complain about why their favorite team doesn’t get any/much representation in card sets – your team is not a popular team, or is not a good team, or is a combination of the two.

    Card companies are not in the business of having equal representation of each team in each product. They are in the business of making money – and popular big market teams make money. The Yankees and Dodgers are big market teams, in big market cities, that have big fan bases nationwide. Lets try not to be surprised when they have a ton of cards each time.
    The Royals, A’s, etc are small market teams, that aren’t good and won’t sell as much product. Simple math, and common sense folks. This is coming from a White Sox fan – who could routinely expect to see 1 maybe 2 cards in most products. After trading nearly everyone – they have some big name prospects and are getting some love. Maybe you should write your team’s GM and advise them to do the same.

    Also, you are likely the same people that always complain when you get a no-name prospect auto from a small team. Sorry it wasn’t the no-name prospect from your terrible small market team.

    This website is not run by Topps. it is 99.99% likely that they don’t check this. Quit acting like this is the customer service website.

    Good luck on your packs. Hopefully you get a Judge or Bellinger, or some other big market star/prospect that is worth money, and not some small market no-namer that isn’t worth the cardboard and ink used in production.

    Have a nice day.

  12. Thank god there’s not another Judge auto causing the Yankees prices to be absurd in pyt. It’s already bad enough when distributors like BO are stock-piling product and driving the price up. Manufacturers should start limiting what they can order and open up factory direct to the buyers. It’s sad because a week from now BO and others will be “sold out” but magically have more 2 months later at a 30% bump. Just depressing.

  13. ^^^Thats exactly right^^^^ Last years Bowman chrome auto checklist was pretty atrocious. Boxes sat at $55/hobby and $65/vending and went unsold for months. Then Blowout (BO) swooped in and bought up all the cases they could find, then sat on them for a couple months till a couple more prospects from the set got hot and people started to want them. When that happened everybody except BO was sold out. They then set the market by charging $140/hobby and $160/vending. Double what they had been going for unsold just a couple months back. It’s funny that the sports collecting market has kinda taken off thanks in part to our economy so all these distributors and hobby shop owners are beating us over the head on prices now, especially for Bowman. Yet in a down economy those same people beg us to buy their goods because one of the first things for the bottom to fall out of in a bad economy is the sports collectibles market. I know that’s how a free market operates but maybe they should instead be trying to build a loyal customer base for when the economy does take a down turn so those same people will keep buying from you. Instead they just squeeze us for every $5 they can increase the price of a box with a smile on their face, sending us out of there shop walking funny.

  14. I like the set, I like the look and the future possibility with this.
    What I don’t like is that Topps sold it on their website for $75 when everyone else has it for $100 plus. My local hobby shop included. And I bought one for $105 not knowing Topps had it for cheaper.
    They are just shooting themselves in the foot. How is a “Hobby Only” item for sale on their website? Isn’t that that point of Hobby Only, to sell it through shops and distributors?
    Pretty similar to the Finest disaster from 2016. What a bunch of typical Topps nonsense.

  15. Definitely worth the $90 investment in one box.
    Got a decent player gold auto and my first Superfractor (a patch auto!) of Dylan Cozens. It’s listed. Reasonable offers accepted.

  16. Just too many of the players are double of what has already been in other sets. I want guys that don’t have a card yet. A bunch of crap autos in this set also. I love bowman but not this time.

  17. I love the look of the 2017 Bowman cards. I honestly don’t care about the prospect autograph checklist because I don’t chase autos, I just enjoy collecting cards in general.

    Two things: you forget the silver border parallels that are #’ed to 499.

    Also, does anyone know about a gray border parallel that is not numbered? I pulled a Zach Britton that clearly has a border but it’s numbered. The border is darker than the silver…anyone know about this?

  18. You’re missing the prospect blue refractors /150 and the blue shimmers /150!

  19. Hit and miss–opened 12 boxes on day and turned a 200 percent profit; three days later opened 10 more and lost 80 percent of it.

  20. Too many duplicate autographs. Four Mitchell Whites in five boxes? Come on, Topps.
