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:

  • Green Refractor (#'d)
  • Gold Refractor (#'d)
  • Orange Refractor (#/25) - Hobby
  • Red Refractor (#/5)
  • SuperFractor (1/1)
Base Chrome Prospect Parallels

Building on the base options are new Rookie Short Print Image Variations for top 2017 rookies. These SP variations are exclusive to Hobby boxes.

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. 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.

Other signed cards in 2017 Bowman Chrome Baseball include the debut of prospect-centered Chrome Sensation Autographs and horizontal Prime Chrome Signatures. 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 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.

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.
