Most collectors like their MLB prospects with some chromium and that is the name of the game for 2018 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Hobby fans can pick between the two-autograph Master boxes or the HTA Choice format that only has three cards, but all three are encased autographs.

Acting as an extension of sorts for 2018 Bowman Baseball, 2018 Bowman Chrome Baseball features more prospects and some exclusive options.

2018 Bowman Chrome Baseball Base

Staying true to the norm, the 2018 Bowman Chrome Baseball checklist contains 100 base cards for veterans and rookies, and 100 prospect cards. Each standard pack includes three base cards and two prospect cards, while every Hobby box promises one Shimmer parallel. Speaking of parallels, BC is loaded with Refractors. The lineup for the base set and prospect set is broken down below.
