2008 Bowman Chrome

27 04 2008

I’ve been looking over sell sheets for the 2008 baseball releases, seeing if I want to branch out and chase some other sets. 

Here’s the one for 2008 Bowman Chrome.  I realize that the reason to buy Bowman Chrome is not the base set itself, but in bold letters it screams Base Cards: 2 per pack!. That’s right, 2!
That means, with perfect collation, you’d have to get 110 packs, or almost 6 boxes of the stuff to put together a set.

That is, of course, unless you get an awesome scout insert, one of the 6 parallels, or one of the 4 framed printing plates issued for each card. Topps seems to brag that there are, in fact, 1320 one of ones in those printing plates. Lets totally destroy any idea of scarcity at all!

Bowman Chrome is scheduled to release on August 13th.
