BOWMAN DRAFT COMING IN DECEMBER
Sports Card Monthly|September 2020
2020 Bowman DraftBaseball is home to the first cards of June’s draft picks in their MLB uniforms. It also has all the usual features of the main Bowman line including Chrome cards, autographs and lots of Refractors.

The set has two configurations. Hobby HTA boxes include three total autographs and 24 Refractors. Super jumbo boxes have five autographs and 40 of the colorful Chrome parallels.

2020 BOWMAN DRAFT BASEBALL BASE SET BASICS

The Bowman Draft base set consists entirely of draftpicks and other prospects working their way through the MiLB ranks. As with past years for the line, cards have both Bowman and Bowman Chrome versions. It’s kind of like having two products in the same package.

For regular Bowman cards, parallels include:

• Sky Blue – /499

• Purple – /250

•, Blue – /150

• Green – /99

• Gold – /50

• Orange – /25

• Red – /5

• Printing Plates – 1/1

• Black – 1/1

For Chrome base cards, it’s pretty much all about Refractors and their rainbow-colored backgrounds:

• Refractors

• Sky Blue Refractors (1:12 hobby packs)

• Sparkle Refractors

• Purple Refractors – /250

• Blue Refractors – /150

• Green Refractors – /99

• Gold Refractors – /50 • Orange Refractors – /25

• Red Refractors – /5

• Superfractors – 1/1

Chrome cards also have one-of-one Printing Plates. Each of these have Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow versions.

Both the Bowman Orange and Chrome Orange Refractors are only in hobby HTA packs, not jumbo. The same holds true for the Sky Blue Refractors.

Some base cards also have Image Variations.

California Coastal Road Trip

Like many people around the country, we have had little occasion to travel this year. With car shows and events like the Power Tour and Drag Week postponed and rescheduled due to the coronavirus, we’ve mostly been stuck at home. I recently had occasion to travel to Santa Rosa, California, for a photo shoot with Scott Birdsall, owner/builder of Old Smokey, the Cummins-powered Ford F1 that beat the diesel-engine record at the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. Motor Trend’s William Walker was the shooter, with me serving as assistant and camera car driver. It seemed like as good excuse as any to make a trip out of it.
