the photo on the front for a different one.


Autographs and Inserts

Standard for virtually every modern Bowman Chrome release, Chrome Prospect Autographs are the main place to find signatures.

While not as many as the base set, there are still several parallels.


Prime Signatures is a standalone autograph insert.


Base versions for these have just 50 copies.

Orange Refractors (/25) and Superfractors (1/1) are also available.

A couple of standard insert sets take very different approaches to design.


2009 Bowman Basketball - (1:6 packs) takes it back to the brand’s last

NBA-licensed release that includes Rookie Cards of Stephen Curry,

James Harden and more.

The solid-colored backdrop returns for a new group of prospects.

Skyscraping goes bigger for its look and feel,

casting players against a city skyline backdrop.

Both have Aqua Refractors (/150), Orange Refractors (/25) and Superfractors (1/1).

Select cards also have autographs numbered to 99 with their

own Orange Refractor (/25) and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels.

Two other insert sets are only available in hobby packs.


Bowman Invicta (1:12 packs) comes with Lava Refractors (/150),

Orange Refractors (/25) and Superfractors (1/1).

Select cards have autographs that are numbered /99.


These also have Orange Refractors (/25) and Superfractors (1/1)!


The Big Kahuna returns as a case hit with 1:288 pack odds.

Orange Refractors (/25) and Superfractors (1/1) are the only parallels for these.

Some also get the autograph treatment.




2023 Bowman Mega Box Baseball: $65.00 per Hobby Mega!!!!

Releases on Wednesday 5.31.2023

The fact that 2023 Bowman Mega Box Baseball exists shouldn’t be a surprise.

But the addition of hobby to its distribution might be!

The patterned Chrome spin on Bowman Baseball has been around for a while now.

For several years, it was exclusive to Target.

Then it became wider but still primarily Retail-exclusive!

This time around, hobby shops are an option as well!


As usual, the Mega Box has a handful of basic Bowman packs.

But the real draw is the two exclusive packs in each box.


Configuration: 40 boxes case / 6 packs / 5 cards per pack


2023 Bowman Mega Box Baseball Box Break:

(4) 2023 Bowman Base Chrome packs

(2) Exclusive Mega Chrome packs


2023 Bowman Mega Box Baseball



While the hobby distribution might be new, the overall format of these boxes isn’t.

The Exclusive 2023 Bowman Mega Box Baseball packs offer a different spin on select base cards and prospects from 2023 Bowman Baseball.


This time around, they’re done on Chrome stock with the

distinct “Mojo” pattern running through the background.


In all, there are 100 base cards, 50 from the Bowman base set and

50 from the Prospects.


Parallels include:

Purple Mega Refractors – /250

Aqua Mega Refractors – /225

Pink Mega Refractors – /199

Navy Mega Refractors – /175

Blue Mega Refractors – /150

Green Mega Refractors – /99

Yellow Mega Refractors – /75

Gold Mega Refractors – /50

Orange Mega Refractors – /25

Red Mega Refractors – /5

Black Mega Refractors – 1/1



Select cards also have Image Variations.

One-of-One Black Mega Refractors are the lone parallels for these.


Autographs and Other Inserts

Chrome Prospect Mega Autographs lead the chase.

These are like their Bowman counterparts,

albeit with the Mega background pattern.

As a standalone product, the rainbow is also significantly smaller:

More ink is available with Chrome Rookie Mega Autographs (/99)

and Chrome Prospect Image Variations Autographs (/25).


A couple of standard 2023 Bowman insert sets get Mega Box spins, Rookie of the Year Favorites Mega (1:2 pacms) and Sights on September (1:4 packs)

Also sold by the pack!

Scheduled Release Date 6.7.2023

2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball picks up right where the previous set left off.

That means a continuation in some areas and some fresh content in others.


Above all, though, it’s a continuation of the season’s flagship release,

which brings with it plenty of widespread hobby clout.


Hobby Configuration: 12 boxes / 24 packs / 14 cards per pack

2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball


Like Series 1, the base set is another 330 cards bringing the overall 2023 Topps Baseball checklist up to #660.

Collectors can expect lots of rookies that, if going by the preview images posted by the card maker, include players making their

MLB debuts in the early parts of the season.

Seeing as how Series 1 and 2 go together, there are also a good number of veteran players left out of the first release.


Future Stars and Team Cards both return as well.


Select cards get the acetate treatment with scarce Clear parallels. Numbered to 10, these are only in regular hobby packs.

“Luke the Cardist” is adding some original art to some base cards as well for new Art Card parallels.


Each of these is a One-of-One.


HTA jumbo is the lone place to find them.

The Golden Mirror Variations are also back,

offering scarce SSP image variations for all 330 cards.



2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball continues to look back on the

1988 flagship set for its 35th anniversary.

The standard 1988 Topps Baseball inserts get 50 new cards, each using the main base design as their inspiration.

There are also 50 1988 Topps Baseball All-Star cards,

which opt for the subset layout.


All Aces returns for a new batch of cards highlighting pitchers

with a playing card-inspired design on foil stock.

Tough Heavy Lumber cards are back as well.

These spotlight sluggers with cards done on woodgrain stock.


2023 World Baseball Classic features 60 players

who competed in the pre-season tournament.

Parallels include Blue, Black (/299), Gold (/75), Red (/10), Platinum (1/1) and Autographs (/25) for select cards.


Looking to the past is Legends of the Game!


These have the same parallels as WBC cards including autographs.

Other insert sets on the 2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist include

Significant Statistics, which highlight advanced stats standouts, and Favorite Sons, a set dedicated to players who made their

MLB journeys through their home states.


One of the manufactured relic themes is Father’s Day Commemorative Team Patch.


Autograph versions top out at 25 copies each!


2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball Autographs and Memorabilia Cards

Most of the standalone autographs and relic themes on the 2023 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist carry over from Series 1.


Baseball Stars Autographs take an all-encompassing approach

and have Black (/99), Gold (/50), Red (/25) and Platinum (1/1) parallels.

Baseball Stars Dual Autographs are scarce with no more than five copies a piece.


Major League Materials take a similar wide approach

with uniform and bat swatches.

Black (/199), Gold (/50 or less) and Red (/25 or less) are among the parallels.

Autographed versions are also available, each with print runs of 50 or less.


1988 Topps Baseball Autographs and 1988 Topps Baseball All-Star Autographs include On-Card signatures, something there aren’t a lot of in the flagship release.


The retro design also has relic counterparts.


Topps Reverence Autograph Patch cards is another place for hard signatures. Like usual, though, they’re Exclusive to hobby and HTA jumbo packs.
