First Look - 2016 Bowman

Walked into Target today after work to see if they had the new Bowman, it's been on eBay for days and a bunch of people have been posting it early over on Twitter. I walked in and they had it all, loose packs, blasters, 3-packs you name it. Gypsy Queen seemed like it came about a week late at my store so it was nice to pick some up on release date this time.

I opted for a rack pack, six bucks for some retail crack? Sure.

This was the "hit" of the pack a refractor #''d/499. Kyle Tucker was a first rounder last year but not somebody I collect so if your interested let me know. 

Here's the backs. The design reminds me of a better looking 2015 Topps football.

The lone insert of the pack, a Top 100 of Cardinals LHP Marco Gonzales. This one's headed west.

The design of the veterans is a little different from the prospects as seen here. I like it, my favorite part of these is that there is NO foil. Look at it it's beautiful, I'm sure everyone will hate these though.

Chrome Prospects as usual, I like the prospects design way better that the veterans.

In a rare feat, 11 percent of the pack were Braves. I'm used to zero. Typical Bowman cards here with 2 right handed teenage hurlers. Been listening to some Rome games this year and Soroka has been lights out, while Touki has been wild.

Last few are base paper prospects that don't have homes. save them from being boxed away today!

Thanks for reading, Go Bolts!


  1. This is the first I've seen of Bowman this year and I really like the design. I might have to get a bit of this now. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Nice- I think I like these, I will need to give it some time to percolate. Stone Garrett is a pretty good name.

  3. I'm interested in the Sanchez. I picked some up and will be posting later today or tomorrow. I really like this design too which is bad for my wallet...

    1. it's yours, got a couple Yankeess in there for you as well.

  4. Bowman is going to be money for the Braves the next couple of years.

  5. Just put my review up today. I like the fronts but the backs are horrible. I'm interested in the Tucker card.
