First Look: 2009 Bowman Chrome Baseball


2009 Bowman Chrome PreviewThis our first look at the 2009 Bowman Chrome product. Always a fan favorite, this years product looks to be another success for the product. The product will feature a 220-card base set, 40 card World Baseball Classic, and of course, the prospects inserted 2 in every pack. Each of the cards will also be produced in Bowman Chrome familiar parallel sets of Refractors, XFractors, Blue Refractors, Gold Refractors, Orange Refractors, Red Refractors, Superfractors, and Printing Plates, ranging in production numbers of 500 to 1 of 1’s. These parallel’s are inserted 7 per box.

The prospect checklist contains 110 players that have previously not had a card in the Bowman Chrome series. Still missing from the set is last years top-pick, Tim Beckham. The preliminary Prospect Autograph set, inserted 1 per box, looks to be very promising. One of the more attractive perks about the Bowman Chrome Prospect sets is that each of the prospects are always featured in their MLB uniforms. The checklist contains autographs from some of the top prospects in the game. Some of highlights include: Tommy Hanson, Freddie Freeman, Carlos Santana, and Dayan Viciedo. Here is a small run down of the autograph checklist from the 2009 Bowman Chrome Baseball Hobby Sellsheet:

  • BCP91 Rinku Singh
  • BCP92 Dinesh Kumar Patel
  • BCP93 Randall Delgado
  • BCP94 Pat Venditte
  • BCP95 Zack Putnam
  • BCP96 Robbie Grossman
  • BCP97 Tommy Hanson
  • BCP98 Gift Negope
  • BCP99 Dylan Lindsay
  • BCP100 Chris Marrero
  • BCP101 Freddie Freeman
  • BCP102 Chris Johnson
  • BCP103 Jefry Marte
  • BCP104 Ernie Banks
  • BCP105 Brett Anderson
  • BCP106 Juancarlos Sulbaran
  • BCP107 Ryan Perry
  • BCP108 Carlos Santana
  • BCP109 Brad Emaus
  • BCP110 Dayan Viciedo
  • BCP111 Tim Federowicz
  • BCP112 Allen Craig

2009-bowman-chrome-viciedoI can guarantee that at least two of those prospect auto’s will be cut prior to production as BCP111 and BCP112 already belong to Beemer Weams and Logan Morrison from the 2009 Bowman inserts. With the numerous parallels, great prospect checklist, and riding on the heels of the lackluster prospect autograph checklist from the base Bowman, you can count on this being a very hot product.
