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.

Product Details

In recent years, many collectors have clamored for more autographs in Bowman and Bowman Chrome. 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball grants their wish. While there’s still only one guaranteed autograph per box, every third yields a second one. To put it in mathematical terms:

3 2012 Bowman Chrome Boxes = 4 Autographs

Since its debut in 1997, the Bowman Chrome name has been synonymous with rookies, prospects and Refractors. The brand has continued to evolve, but the focus on baseball’s young stars has remained true. Besides the slight increase in ink, there is not a lot that’s new or groundbreaking in 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Most collectors will still be chasing the black-bordered prospects and their numerous parallels.

The 220-card 2012 Bowman Chrome base set is where collectors find the veterans and rookies. In fact, there are 170 established stars and 50 rookie cards.

The real action, though, comes from the 110-card Prospects inserts, which pictures prospects in the Major League uniforms. Because these prospect cards are inserts and lack full licensing, they are not technically rookies. However, they are still highly coveted by collectors and can often be valued higher than their eventual official rookie cards. The Prospect cards are numbered 111 to 220, picking up from where the Bowman Chrome Prospects inserts left off from in 2012 Bowman Baseball.

The Prospect cards are book-ended by 35 autographs. Signers include Nick Castellanos, Pratt Maynard, Shawon Dunston Jr, Matt Sczcur, Jake Marisnick and Jonathan Singleton.

Both the base cards and Prospect cards have seven levels of Refractor parallels plus Printing Plates. Regular Refractors fall eight per hobby box and they get rarer from there. Other Refractors include Blue (#/250), Purple (#/199), Gold (#/50), Orange (#/25), Red (#/5) and Super-Fractor (1/1).

While much of the focus will be on the basic 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball set, Topps is amping up the inserts somewhat. Legends in the Making is the latest insert to use a die-cut design. Inserted 1:24 packs and focused on veterans, the set has 25 cards. There are also 15 autographed versions that are numbered to 15 or less. Signers include Yu Darvish, Yoenis Cespedes, Albert Pujols and Buster Posey.

Franchise All-Stars is a 20-card set that matches up a 2012 Futures Game participant with a comparable MLB star. Cards fall one per hobby box. The concept is similar to the Mirror Image cards from mid-90s Bowman’s Best sets. Five cards have dual autographed versions numbered to 25 or less.

The Futures Game is further highlighted with its own insert set. Falling one per hobby box, the 45-card set will keep set builders busy. The set is paralleled by a collection Patch Relics that are numbered to 10. Ten players also have Futures Game Autographed Patch cards numbered to 5.

The cross-brand Bowman Black program continues with 25 more autographs, each of which are numbered to 25. The striking cards feature a silver on-card autograph on a black background. The highlight here is bound to be Yu Darvish.

Estimated Release Date: 10/15/12
Product Configuration: 18 packs per box, four cards per pack
Price Point: Mid-End Football Card
Target Audience: Prospectors, Chromies, Set Builders, Player Collectors, Autograph Collectors, Refractor Fans
