Collectors will have the chance to find a fresh box of baseball cards under their tree this holiday season. 2019 Bowman’s Best baseball is set to arrive December 18, packing four on-card autographed cards per master box.
The Bowman’s Best checklist (linked below when it becomes available in December) will be a mix of veterans, rookies, prospects and draft picks on chrome stock.
Each master box will have two six-pack mini boxes. Topps says every eight master case will contain:
• 1 1999 Franchise Favorites Autograph card
• 2 1999 Franchise Favorites Atomic Refractor Parallel insert cards
• 2 Future Foundations Die-Cut Atomic Refractor Parallel insert cards
• 1 Power Producers Atomic Refractor Parallel insert card
There’s no word yet on the size of the set but base cards will have a variety of parallels including the one-per-pack Refractors. Base Refractor parallels include Purple (# to 250); Blue (# to 150); Green (# to 99); Gold (# to 50); Orange (# to 25); Red (# to 10) as well as 1/1 SuperFractors.
Insert cards will include the one-per-case 1999 Franchise Favorites, featuring what Topps will be “historic retired greats, elite veterans, top prospects and MLB Draft picks who have excelled in their careers.” The cards will replicate the design of the 1999 Bowman’s Best Franchise Favorites.
Future Foundations is a new die-cut insert, showcasing top prospects; Power Producers will focus on veterans, rookies, prospects and new draft picks who have a propensity to hit homers.
Neophyte Sensations features the best-performing rookie subjects of 2019.
Parallels for the above-mentioned sets are expected to include Atomic; Gold (# to 50) and 1/1 SuperFractors.
Look for low-numbered autograph and 1-of-1 SuperFractor autograph parallels of Power Producers and Neophyte Sensations.
Best of 2019 Autographs will run the gamut of veterans, rookies, prospects and draft picks. In addition to the standard Refractors, other autograph parallels will include Blue (# to 150); Green (# to 99); Gold (# to 50); Atomic (# to 25); Red (# to 10) as well as 1/1 SuperFractors and Printing Plates.
Dual Autographs will be numbered to 25 with Atomic Refractor parallels numbered to 25 and 1/1 SuperFractors also in the mix.
Autographed versions of the Future Foundations and 1999 Franchise Favorites inserts will have Gold (# to 50), Atomic (# to 25) and 1/1 SuperFractor parallels.
