2019 Bowman Draft Baseball Hobby Jumbo Box Break & Review

The third and final major prospecting pillar of 2019 has arrived.  It all began with Bowman, then came Bowman Chrome, and now Bowman Draft.  I believe Bowman Draft receives the most attention as it has the first prospect cards for newly drafted 2019 players.  Collectors, flippers, and investors all want to get their hands on them.

2019 Bowman Draft’s base set consists of (200) cards.  Parallel cards that you can pull include Sky Blue #’ed/499, Purple #’ed/250, Blue #’ed/150, Green #’ed/99, Gold #’ed/50, Orange #’ed/25 (Jumbo), Red #’ed/5, Black #’ed 1/1, and Printing Plates #’ed 1/1.

Every single card in the main base set has a Chrome counterpart.  Parallels of the Chrome cards include Refractor, Sky Blue (Jumbo), Purple #’ed/250, Sparkles, Blue #’ed/150, Green #’ed/99, Gold #’ed/50, Orange #’ed/25 (Jumbo), Red #’ed/5, SuperFractor #’ed 1/1, and Printing Plates #’ed 1/1.

(14) Chrome cards have photo variations – Adley Rutschman, Alek Manoah, Josh Jung, Hunter Bishop, Riley Greene, Shea Langeliers, CJ Abrams, Victor Victor Mesa, Wander Franco, Andrew Vaughn, Joey Bart, J.J. Bleday, Nick Lodolo, and Seth Beer.  The CMP code for these variations ends in #763.  With the exception of Hunter Bishop and Alek Manoah, variations have autographed versions #’ed/99.

Coming (3) to a Jumbo box and (5) to a Super Jumbo box, autographs of newly drafted prospects are #1 on breaker’s radar.  Autograph types include Chrome Draft Pick Autographs, 1989 Bowman 30th Anniversary Autographs, Class of 2019 Autographs, Draft Night Autographs, Draft Pick Breakdown Autographs, Franchise Futures Dual Autographs, Under Armour Game Autographs, and Chrome Top of the Class Box Toppers Autographs.

Inserts include 1989 Bowman 30th Anniversary, Draft Pick Breakdown, Draft Progression Trios, Franchise Futures, and Chrome Top of the Class Box Toppers.

When it comes to products like Bowman Draft, you’ll find people spending thousands of dollars for a card picturing a player who is years away from making their MLB debut.  Others will attempt to convince you which players you should put you’re money into.  Don’t let any of this intimidate you.  Open what you want to open.  Collect what you want to collect.  Prospecting can be fun, but make sure you’re doing it within your own budget.  Do your own research.  Think for yourself.  Don’t worry about what others are doing.  Most importantly… have fun!

As a Phillies fan, I always hold out prospects from the Phillies.  I also hold out any cards of players who have photo variations too.  Players who have photo variations tend to be the ones in which people think have the most potential.  That’s my personal strategy.  Lots of future potential.
