2013 Bowman Baseball Released

Jesse Biddle - Bowman Prospect
Autograph Card (2013)

If you even "somewhat" follow the baseball card market, you are likely aware that 2013 Bowman Baseball was released earlier this week (May 8th).  While there are base sets for each of the 30 teams, the real draw are the prospect cards, particularly, those of the Chrome Autograph variety.

In this year's set, there are twelve Phillies cards.  Inclusions are "highlighted" by one card for Darin Ruf in the base set, and two Chrome Prospect Autographs (Jesse Biddle and Roman Quinn).  As in previous years, besides the basic autograph cards, there are several additional auto variations: basic refractor (#/500), Super Refractor (#/1) and multiple refractor parallels.  The base cards are pretty nice, too (considering they don't get as much attention).  I pulled cards for Michael Young, Ruf and Carlos Ruiz in my blaster box.  Below are the checklists for both the base and Chrome Prospect Auto cards:
