Both the Jose Abreu Superfractor Autograph and the redemption for the Kris Bryant Superfractor Autograph have been pulled so 2014 Bowman Baseball should be dead in the water, right? Not a chance. With a deep roster of prospects, autographs and parallels, there is plenty to keep the product's core audience busy even with a couple of the biggest hits out of the mix.
2014 Bowman Baseball is the first set of the year to offer a deep look at some up-and-coming prospects. 2013 Bowman Draft covered most of the top picks of the 2013 draft, but the first two players were held back. Kris Bryant and Mark Appel both have their first Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs. In a nice bit of timing, the product also has the first live MLB autographs of Jose Abreu.
Looking down to the minors, 2014 Bowman also has the first MLB autograph of Mookie Betts who was in the midst of a record-setting consecutive games getting on base streak that has garnered him a lot of attention and collector interest.
But even those not collecting top players have lots to stay busy. For about a decade, it has never been short on parallels. This is the biggest lineup yet with new Mini inserts making for even more short-numbered cards that prospectors and player collectors are chasing and speculating on.
