2021 Bowman Platinum Baseball Mega Box Break & Review

Collector Type: Rookie/Prospect/Autograph

Shiny foil! Bowman Platinum is back as a Walmart exclusive. A Mega box contains (20) packs and guarantees (2) autographs. Blasters are the only place to find the Ice Foil parallels.

The base set consists of (200) cards. (100) veterans/rookies and (100) top prospects. Parallels include Ice Foil (Blaster), Foilboard #’ed/299, Aqua Ice Foilboard #’ed/250, Pink #’ed/199, Blue #’ed/150, Green #’ed/99, Green Icy Foil #’ed/99, Gold #’ed/50, Orange #’ed/25, Red #’ed/10, and Foilfractor #’ed 1/1.

Both veterans/rookies and top prospects have photo variations. CMP codes continue to be the easiest way to identify them. Base veterans/rookies have a CMP code that ends in #631. Base top prospects have a CMP code that ends in #644. Photo variations for both end in #678. So, if you pull a card that has a CMP code that ends in #678 you’ve got a photo variation.

Veterans/Rookies with Photo Variations:

  • Jo Adell #5
  • Ronald Acuña Jr. #9
  • Joey Bart #14
  • Fernando Tatis Jr. #55
  • Mike Trout #61

Top prospects with Photo Variations:

  • Heston Kjerstad #40
  • Nick Gonzales #87
  • Austin Martin #90
  • Austin Hendrick #91
  • Spencer Torkelson #92

Autographs include Top Prospect Autographs, Meteoric Autographs, Platinum Die-Cuts Autographs, Platinum Etchings Autographs, Precious Elements Autographs, and Renowned Rookies Autographs.

Autograph relics include Platinum Patches Autographs, Platinum Pedigree Autographs, and Platinum Pieces Autographs.

Relics include Platinum Patches and Platinum Pedigree.

Inserts include Meteoric, Platinum Die-Cuts, Platinum Etchings, Precious Elements, and Renowned Rookies.

Fun box to break. Be very careful when flipping through your cards. My two autographs were easily stuck to other cards. I almost missed one of them.
