2016_Bowman-Draft-Baseball-1What: 2016 Bowman Draft baseball cards
Arrives: Dec. 7
Box basics: Three autographs per 12-pack box (eight boxes per case). For Super-jumbos, there will be five packs of 120 cards in each box with a total of five autos (six boxes per case).

What’s buzz-worthy: One of the hobby’s heavyweights returns is back for another year with nearly 400 cards per box and “better autograph value, revamped MLB Draft content and additional autograph Refractors.”

See a gallery and more … below.

The Basics:
 Every pack will contain 23 Bowman draft picks or top prospects cards, seven Chrome and two Chrome Refractors. … Among the new inclusions will be seven-card autograph Hot Packs. The auto rainbow will include numbered Refractors as well as Purple, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange (/25), Red (/5) and 1/1 Supers. All volumes are TBD. Wave Refractor autos also will be in play. … New inserts will include MLB Draft History, Draft Night Autos and the Hot Packs, which will have Black Refactor autos. … Draft History will have Gold, Red, Super and auto parallels as will Draft Night. Reds will be /5, while the Golds are TBD. … Fantasy Impact and Draft Dividends inserts also will have the same rainbow of parallels. … Top of the Class jumbo box-toppers will be found for the biggest names in this year’s draft with Gold (/50), Red (/5) and 1/1 Super parallels as well as an Orange (/TBD) version. … Prep All-Star game cards also will be in play with Gold 1/1 parallels that come framed. … The base card rainbow will include Silver, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange (/25), Red (/5) and 1/1 Black, while Chromes base cards will have Refractors, Sky Blue, Purple, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange (/25), Red (/5) and 1/1 Supers.
