Always one of the most popular MLB prospect sets every year, 2021 Bowman Chrome Baseball makes a few changes.

In addition to the Hobby box, with two autographs, and the signature-only HTA Choice box, with three autographs, there is a new LITE format with no promised hits per box.

Of course, Bowman Chrome follows the 2021 Bowman Baseball release from earlier in the year.
