2018 Bowman’s Best Baseball CardsBrand: Bowman's Best
2018 Bowman's Best Baseball puts its own unique spin on MLB veteran, rookie and prospect collecting. The Hobby-only release promises four autographs per master box.
Just as with the 2017 set, the 2018 release offers two mini-boxes per master box, and a case-hit autograph alongside insert parallels.
2018 Bowman's Best Baseball Base
Putting an abstract background with a player image, the base set for 2018 Bowman's Best Baseball includes top current players and prospects.
Although the prospect cards feature a different design, there are generally lumped in with the base cards.
In addition, they all share the same Refractor parallels, including base Refractor, Atomic (1 per master box), Purple (#/250), Blue (#/150), Green (#/99), Gold (#/50), Orange (#/25), Red (#/10), and SuperFractor (1/1).
2018 Bowman's Best Baseball Inserts
Adding to that, the insert choices in the 2018 Bowman's Best Baseball checklist get a refresh. The retro-inspired 1998 Best Performers line is for past and present standouts, while Early Indications highlights more recent minor league success stories.
Power Producers covers the big hitters, and Neophyte Sensations is only for the 2018 MLB rookies.
All inserts feature case-hit Atomic Refractor parallels, plus numbered Gold Refractor and SuperFractor (1/1) versions.
2018 Bowman's Best Baseball Autographs
With four on-card signatures per master box, it should not be a shock that the 2018 Bowman's Best Baseball autographs take center focus. Best of 2018 acts as the main signed set, bringing with it base Refractor, plus Green (#/99), Gold (#/50), Atomic (#/25), and Red (#/10) Refractor parallels. There are also the one-of-one SuperFractor and Printing Plate options.
Each insert line noted above offers a limited signed version, as well, with the serial numbered 1998 Best Performers Autographs and Early Indications Autographs also having Gold Refractor (#/50), Atomic Refractor (#/25) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.
Another new choice is the hard-signed Dual Autographs set with only 25 copies. For those chasing extreme rarity, these come in Atomic Refractor (#/10) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.
Estimated Release Date: 12/19/2018
