2018 Bowman Platinum Baseball Blaster Box Break

This is just a quick break.  For the last couple of years, the Bowman Platinum brand has been a Walmart exclusive.  My local Walmart store had three blasters on the shelf.  By now they could be all gone.

There are three different formats that you can find this product in – Fat Packs, Blasters, and Collector’s Boxes.  Each comes with it’s own exclusive parallel.  A Collector’s Box is the most expensive at $80, but that does include (2) autographs.  The base set consists of (100) cards and the following parallels: Ice (Blaster), Sky Blue (Fat Pack), Purple #’ed/250, Blue #’ed/150, Green #’ed/99, Orange #’ed/25 (Collector’s Box), Red #’ed/10, and Foilfractor #’ed/1.  Top Prospects have (100) cards too with the same parallels.

Photo variations are quite easy to spot.  The pictures are drastically different compared to a traditional base card.  CMP codes for base are #264, whereas photo variations are #303.

My favorite Walmart exclusive Topps product recently is 2017 Topps Gallery.  But these look cool too.  When talking about the base set, that pure blackness mixed with those psychedelic swirls is totally far out.

Here is what I pulled:
