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:
