2017 Bowman Chrome Mini Complete Set Box Break & Review

Happy New Year!!!  Its 2018 and everyday baseball season gets closer.  Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training next month.  In 2017 we had an impressive rookie class.  Its going to be hard to top it.

All 2017 Topps MLB licensed products have been released.  The last two were Bowman’s Best and the Bowman Chrome Mini Complete Set.  2018 Topps Series 1 Baseball is due out near the end of the month.

I really like the 2017 Bowman Chrome Mini Complete Set.  Inside each box is a complete 273-card set featuring top tier rookies and prospects from 2017.  Along with it are (3) packs containing (10) special parallels each.  These exclusive parallels can only be found in here.  Parallels include: Refractor, Blue Shimmer Refractor #’ed/150, Black Shimmer Refractor #’ed/100, Green Refractor #’ed/99, Bowman 70th Logo Refractor #’ed/70, Gold Refractor #’ed/50, Orange Refractor #’ed/25, Red Refractor #’ed/10, Superfractors #’ed/1, and Printing Plates #’ed/1.

What I find the most attractive about this set is the configuration.  You can open the main box to access the parallel packs, yet the complete base set remains sealed separately.  I like that a lot.  There aren’t too many configurations that allow you to open something, get the “hits”, and leave you with a sealed set.

It certainly wouldn’t bother me if more rookie/prospect products were configured like this.  Boxes are currently selling for just under $200.  Demand is quite strong considering there aren’t any autographs.

Here is what I pulled:

Parallels

  • Yoshitomo Tsutsugo Magenta Printing Plate #’ed 1/1
  • Dane Dunning Orange Refractor #’ed/25

Frank Thomas ’17 Topps Luminaries Redemption Card Received

In the middle of November, I opened a box of 2017 Topps Luminaries Baseball.  Waiting inside was a redemption for a Frank Thomas Autographed Letter Book Card #’ed 1/1.  As soon as it was pulled, I redeemed it.

At 5:01 a.m. on 12/28/17 I received an e-mail from Topps informing me that my card had been shipped.  According to the tracking number it was scheduled to be delivered the same day.  By lunch time it had arrived.

This card kicks butt.  Booklet, on-card autograph, and game-worn jersey letter patch.  It didn’t really matter to me which letter they used, but I’m glad Topps chose the “T”.

When it comes to redemption cards, you never truly know how long it will take to get your card.  Everyone’s experience can differ.  Personally, I’ve never had to wait that long with Topps products.  Historically they’ve been fast and efficient for me.  The Topps website easily lets me track my redemption cards, while I find their communication skills flawless.  No problems at all.
