Year two for the MLB prospect set overflowing with patterns and on-card autographs, 2018 Bowman High Tek Baseball has only one pack per box but it contains four signed cards.

Building on the 2017 debut, the 2018 edition features a new selection of inserts and a few new parallel choices.

2018 Bowman High Tek Baseball Base / Patterns / Inserts

Printed on acetate, the base set in 2018 Bowman High Tek Baseball is issued in 10 different patterns. Pattern 1 also features a colorful parallel assortment with Purple Rainbow (#/191), Green Rainbow (#/99), Ocean Blue Tidal (#/75), which is new, Gold Rainbow (#/50), Orange Magma Diffractor (#/25), Red Orbit Diffractor (#/5), Black Galactic Diffractor (1/1) and Printing Proofs (1/1). Jumping past Pattern 2 to Pattern 8, Pattern 9 comes as the SpeckTEKular Diffractor (1/1), while Pattern 10 is seen via the Black Galactic Diffractor (1/1).

Patterns

Of course, 2018 Bowman High Tek Baseball has many different pattern variations in play. As the cards themselves are not marked with their specific pattern number, it can be more tricky to distinguish them even though the odds are known for most of the patterns.

The breakdown below is not set in stone but appears to be the basic rarity order.

User Reviews

  1. Nice selection of prospects

  2. Great design and on card autograph.can’t pass!

  3. I usually stay away from Tek due to its busy designs and excessive pattern variety. This year’s design looked a bit more elegant so I gave it a chance at my LCS. I got Buehler Tides of Youth /99, Pavin Smith /99. Autos were Vilade, Pratto, Luis Robert and Royce Lewis gold /50. Good value, at least on this box.

  4. They are getting better with the designs and making it less cluttered and difficult to decipher front and back. It is difficult to get value at a price point above 60-70 dollars, but you can hit big value boxes from time-to-time.

  5. Decent price point for 4 hard signed cards. Not sure when Hi-Tek went to print but Torres shouldn’t be in the prospects anymore.

  6. Another Topps product they fail to put Juan Soto in. They get him in Archives and Fire but miss on everything else while Panini managed to get him into their products.

  7. Very disappointed. Bought a case and upon cracking it, found 12 of my 48 autographs were duplicates. Very few hits in the entire case. Thanks Topps/Bowman for ensuring me never buying this product again. Over a grand down the drain. Brutal!!!!!!

  8. Nice design this year and minimal checklist with big names. On card autos and many parallels and low #’d cards. 4 autos per box with at least one #’d. Pretty good value. There are plenty of duplicates at the case level but with a small checklist, that’s to be expected.
