Default New Comer - Question about bowman chrome and bowman draft picks ??????

I'm a new comer, I would like to know the different between the bowman chrome and bowman draft pick & prospect

(except the chrome card, what about the checklist and which product is easier to get the great hits ?)

Bowman Chrome=prospects from the past year, veterans
(some notables from 2012 bowman chromes autos: Billy Hamilton, Jonathan Singleton, Jorge Soler)
Bowman draft=guys drafted in June+guys called up during the season
(some notables from 2012 bowman draft autos: Albert Almora, Mike Zunino)

Depends who you prefer. I'd look at the checklist for each and see which guys I like more. This year I bought five bowman draft, zero bowman chrome. Last year think I bought one bowman chrome and three bowman draft.

I prefer draft myself because I follow the draft and prospects. Also, kind of an odd idea but even if you get a bad hit in draft...it can become a good hit. Kind of a loose example but a couple people complained about hitting Jose Fernandez in 2011 bowman draft, especially since it was a redemption, but then he had a great year and his autos have gone for a pretty great price.

Welcome, hope you hit some great stuff.

Don't forget Addison Russell in Bowman Draft. In many eyes he is the most well rounded SS in the minors and his prices will only go up

I know, Billy Hamilton looks juiced up.



Think he may be 100 lbs. soaking wet.
