Bowman Sterling is an all chrome set(s) and is highly reflective. The player's picture seems to jump off of the card. The reverse (not pictured) has stats and a synopsis called the Bowman Sterling Rookie Revelation.

As a Bowman collector and apologist... I really like these cards. The only draw back that I can see (other than the damaged card) is the autos are all stickers. I know that getting the cards to the players and getting them auto'd in the presence of a Topps representative is cumbersome, but the cards sure look better if the card itself is auto'd and not just a sticker.

If one wants to collect first cards of some young players and players of tomorrow, this is the issue for you. One will have base, refractor, gold refractor, relic, relic refractor, dual autos, and even 1/1's to chase.

I also like the number of autos in the box - 11 Plus, refractor auto, and a dual auto - all in one box!

I also got a card of my favorites - Longoria and ARod -- very cool!:D :D

Overall grade A+

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays prospects, relics and rookie cards to me!

As always, a good review, Duane! If they are available for trade/sale, I am interested in the Christian Yelich cards. Been looking to pick some up for my Marlins collection.

Thanks!

Nice looking cards. Is there any curl? Would love one of the Yelichs.
