2010 Bowman Chrome, Break & Review

Thanks to Blowoutcards.com for the great service on the Boxes, great price and fast shipping to Canada.

Oh I know I’m a bit late on this one but what’s great about Bowman Chrome MLB is that the rookies and prospects often blossom really late and you can backtrack a bit when you need a fun break. That is what I did and busted my first boxes of this product since it’s release last year. For my first (and not my last) I busted two hobby boxes and here’s how I did.

The Product

As always, the cards look great. The base set is cleary a must assemble and the pack configuration is clear, simple and straight to the point. All the subset are in great ratio and, of course, the prospects are under the spotlight here. They are abundant in this break.

With two hobby boxes I am far from a full base set but still, it’s a great way to start it up.

Some of the cards were dusty, especially the refractors, but it didn’t seem to damage the surface at all. Luckily.

Other than that I think Bowman pretty much delivered one of it’s finest product, especially because of the strength of the rookie class. A winner all the way.

The Break

I was not really lucky with this one, I must say upfront. No hits were missing and my two autos were there but other than that, little to no colors and little to no other ‘whammys’. Still, I had un and here are the highlights.
