It's a 2006 Bowman Originals. There will be a sticker saying that on the back of the case. This actually appears on Beckett's checklist, so odds are it's real. This set held its value so poorly because there's nothing stopping you from buying a common auto in a case, peeling off the hologram sticker, putting it on a card you autographed yourself, then putting it back in the case.

Great idea, horrible execution. Nice card, solid buy. Value on Bowman Originals autos should be somewhere between an IP auto and a low-end certified auto, given how skeptical most buyers are of the set in general, regardless of authenticity.

This is pc for sentimental reasons.

Robbies 1st Bowman Card was the first card my dad ever bought me. I still have it to this day(even though its getting some serious money for a base card).

Even though this wasnt the same exact card, it still kinda reminds me of my childhood.

When you peel off the holigram stickers, the middle of the sticker comes off to shows it been tampered with.
