Default 2012 Bowman Chrome Printing Plate Question

Hey guys,

I know this is a stupid question, but how many printing plates are there of a certain player in 2012 Bowman Chrome and what colors are the printing plates?

Thanks, Matt

premium is correct -- but remember if it is a Bowman Chrome card in 2012 Draft there are 8 (which add 4 'paper' versions in the same colours).

They have to reverse one of the images due to the way they make the cards. The regular cards should have a reverse image. The chrome cards should have a regular image. (unless I have it backwards)

Correct - the paper versions of the plates have the same image; chrome versions are reversed.

Case in point: yellow plate I just acquired! It's the paper version from 2012 Draft.
