The Bowman Series

One thing I have been thinking about for a while is writing a series of articles about Bowman Baseball Cards. There seems to be some inconsistencies in the hobby about terminology and there is some confusion among collectors about what Bowman really is and how to tell the difference between the releases.

Bowman tends to be one of my favorite releases throughout the year. These cards have some special meaning to me on various levels. When you take the time to really step back and look at their product lines, it’s really not too complicated. I do not consider myself an expert in Bowman products. However, I do have a great understanding of their line of cards and I hope to clear up some confusion.

In this series of articles I will look at the three primary Bowman sets: Bowman, Bowman Chrome and Bowman Draft. I will also discuss topics like Bowman’s Best, why there is a need for this product, and the highly sought after Bowman Chrome Prospect Autographs. Later this week I hope to publish my first article in The Bowman Series: The Bowman Primer.

I encourage everyone to comment and give feedback, both good and bad, about my articles. I have been writing on and off for a few years and ideally I would like to make improvements my writing style.
