2017 Bowman’s Best Baseball Box Break & Review

I got hungry for Fruit Roll-Ups while opening this box of 2017 Bowman’s Best Baseball.  Remember those?  They’re still around, but I haven’t had any since I was a kid.  Topps has done a nice job with reviving the Bowman’s Best brand.  Its an exciting and colorful product that caters towards a variety of collectors.  I think its all the crazy and colorful designs that had me thinking about Fruit Roll-Ups.

The 2017 Bowman’s Best base set consists of (100) cards.  (65) are rookies and veterans, while the remaining (35) are top prospects.  Many of those prospects were part of the 2017 draft.  Base cards alone are colorful in design, but things get taken to a whole new level when the parallels come into play.  Parallels include: Refractor, Atomic Refractor, Purple Refractor #’ed/250, Blue Refractor #’ed/150, Green Refractor #’ed/99, Gold Refractor #’ed/50, Orange Refractor #’ed/25, Red Refractor #’ed/10, and Superfractor #’ed 1/1.

Every master box contains (2) mini-boxes.  Inside each mini-box you should find (2) autographs.  Almost everything is signed on-card.  Only a few insert autographs use stickers.  Of all the autographs, Monochrome and 1997 Best Cuts look the best.

The horizontally designed Monochrome cards have a large white area (but not boxy) for the signature.  (1) Monochrome can be found per case.  The serial numbering varies for the base versions.  Gold Refractors #’ed/50, Atomic Refractors #’ed/25, and Superfractors #’ed 1/1 can also be pulled.

1997 Best Cuts pays tribute to the original 1997 Bowman’s Best set.  There are (30) total cards which you can pull that aren’t autographed, and come with accompanying parallels.  (18) of them do have signed versions.

What makes 2017 Bowman’s Best so great is that it caters to a lot of different collectors.  It has prospects, rookies, current stars, veterans, and Hall Of Famers.  There is a little something for everyone.

Here is what I pulled:
