**************************************** ******

Bowman Platinum - good middle of the road issue. Good for set builders, good for player collectors and good for master set builders. One has a number of parallels to chase - in the various chromes, and the various background colors. The cards are reflective - not refractor - just reflective. The player is the only one pictured on the card (instead of a possible action shot - i.e. catcher tagging someone out, or a second baseman making a great catch with someone else in the shot, etc...)

I especially like the die cuts. Don't know why, just do. There are die cuts of the vets and the prospects alike.

Autos - 2 of mine are on the card - very good and one is a sticker.

Still haven't determined why the chrome retro / reprints were added - to me they seem out of place in this set - should be in the Bowman Chrome issue.

Puig - yes, I received a Puig base - and dang it, did not receive an auto, die cut or any other parallel of Puig or our newest Ray - Wil Myers....

Overall grade A very good effort.

Go buy several boxes and send the Myers parallels to me!

Thanks for the review Duane. I like this design and the on card autos are nice. I wonder why they have sticker autos in the same set. Do the chromes have the dreaded "chrome curl"? Please LMK if you pulled any of these.

Brett - no chrome curl at all.... and also not one of the three in base, or any of the chrome parallels. I even checked the extra box that I picked up... sorry.
