Each Pack contains eleven (11) base set cards + four (4) chrome base set cards + one (1) chrome refractor card. Five (5) Chrome Prospect Black & White RayWave refractor parallels per box
As has been the case for Bowman Draft for two decades now, the product is a combination of Bowman and Bowman Chrome. Each has their own base set that’s essentially the same checklist but with standard card stock and chromium being the difference.
A total of 200 players are included in the main set. Although not exclusively 2022 draft picks, there is a heavy emphasis on them. Other prospects are also included.
There’s also the parallels. Bowman Draft cards come with:
Sky Blue – /499
Purple – /250
Aqua – /199
Blue – /150
Green – /99

Bowman Chrome parallels include:
Black and White RayWave Refractors – 1:2 hobby LITE packs (hobby LITE only)
A handful of cards also have Image Variations with alternate photos.
Chrome Prospect Autographs are the main event for many in 2022 Bowman Draft Baseball. These represent some of the first MLB autograph cards for the draft class. They also come with the Bowman Chrome pedigree.
