14 May 12 2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs Gallery


When collectors think of modern Bowman autographs, often it’s the prospects. However, 2012 Bowman Baseball has a handful of rookie autographs that have been given the Bowman Chrome treatment. Each of these black-bordered cards is considered an official rookie card, although most do have prospect cards and signatures from earlier years that are just as desirable, if not more so, on the secondary market.

However, with such a strong rookie crop in 2012, there are many high-profile on-card autographs. The checklist is led by the likes of Yu Darvish, Jesus Montero, Matt Moore and Dellin Betances. 2012 Bowman Baseball has a total of 12 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie cards.

A last-second checklist change saw Jeff Locke (#204) added to the checklist. Chris Parmelee (#219) was originally slated to have an autograph but he does not.

The 2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs have several Refractor parallels as well. Basic Refractors are numbered to 500. Most of the Blue Refractors are numbered to 150 (Yu Darvish is numbered to 250). Other Refractors include Gold (#/50), Red (#/5) and one-of-one Superfractors. The set also has Printing Plates.

2012 Bowman Baseball Bowman Chrome Rookie Autographs combine with Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs to fall at least one per hobby box. A gallery of the entire set is below as well as details on any previous Bowman-brand autographs they may have.

09 May 12 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs Gallery and Guide


Whenever a set comes out with the Bowman name, collectors can almost always guarantee that prospects and autographs are the focal points. This is true once again with 2012 Bowman Baseball, which seems to have more ink than ever. Among the most popular signatures in the set are the 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs. The set boasts a checklist of 38 players, including eight first round picks from the 2011 draft.

With the line between prospect cards and official rookie cards blurred, for many players these are their first Bowman autographs featuring them in a MLB uniform. These generate some of the most long-term interest and consistent prices. Because these are inserts, they are not official rookies in the technical sense. However, they still do very well on the secondary market.

The 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs are inserted in 2012 Bowman Baseball hobby and jumbo boxes. Retail packs have their own set of base Bowman Prospect Autographs. Each have their own checklist and sets of parallels. Also, the 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs feature on-card signatures. Retail Bowman Prospect Autographs use sticker autographs. Combined with Bowman Chrome Rookie Card Autographs, at least one Chrome signature falls in every box.

Collectors not content with just a regular signature can any of the 2012 Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs numbered parallels: Refractors (#/500), Blue Refractors (#/150), Gold Refractors (#/50), Orange Refractors (#/25), Red Refractors (#/10), and Superfractors (1/1). Jumbo boxes also have exclusive Purple Refractors that are numbered to 10 and Printing Plates.

02 Dec 11 2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball


Product Details

2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball is a landmark issue that set the standard for the brand going forward. With a deep rookie checklist and the introduction of first-year one-of-one parallels, 2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball is one of the best sets of the decade.

Leading the way are autographed rookie cards of Justin Verlander and Matt Kemp. This is the only first-year autograph for Kemp (who is listed by his full first name of Matthew), making it an important card to track down as the slugger continues to emerge as one of the game’s best. While Verlander does have several premium rookies that are worth more, the 2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball card is still available at a more accessible price tag while remaining extremely desirable thanks to the set’s brand recognition. The other big autographed rookie card is Billy Butler. Unsigned rookies in the set include Russell Martin, Ian Kinsler and Jair Jurrjens.

Because many of the rookies in this set show up again in Bowman Chrome Draft, collectors need to be careful about checking the numbers. Bowman Chrome Draft card numbers start with the prefix BDP. For players appearing in both sets, only the first 2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball card is considered a true rookie. Both Verlander and Martin fall into this category.

Not only did refractor rainbows grow with the debut of rare Red Refractors numbered to five copies, Printing Plates and one-of-one Superfractors, but collectors were introduced to a new level of ultra high-end prospecting. Superfractors in particular represent the modern benchmark for the greatest rookie of a given player.

Alex Rodriguez is highlighted with his own insert set that made cards for the years he wasn’t with Topps (1994-1997). A-Rod Throwback cards are inserted 1:9 pack. Parallels for the insert set include Refractors (/499), X-Fractors (/99) and Superfractors (/1). Rodriguez also signed 50 copies of the 1996 card and 99 copies of the 1997 version.

The 353-card 2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball set is broken down as follows: 140 veterans (#1-140), 25 young stars (141-165), 165 rookies (166-330) and 23 autographed rookies (331-353). One autographed rookie can be found in every hobby box.

Hobby boxes hold 18 packs of four cards.

2005 Bowman Chrome Baseball Parallels:

  • Refractors 1:4
  • Autographed Refractors /500
  • X-Fractors /225
  • Blue Refractors /150
  • Gold Refractors /50
  • Red Refractors /5
  • Printing Plates four different for each player, /1
  • Superfractors /1
