1996 Bowman's Best

1996 Bowman's Best #17

If this card looks familiar it should. It's basically identical to the Preview card that was randomly packaged in 1996 Bowman, with the exception of a new card number on the back. Never was a fan of Bowman's Best and this year's design sure didn't help. There is just way too much "border" on these cards and not enough of the background photo for my taste.

Refractor #17

There are two parallels to chase, just like with the Preview card...Atomic Refractor and Refractor. Surprisingly I don't have the Atomic Refractor version yet. I guess I never paid too much attention to what version of the card I had before.

* I think there is an Atomic Refractor version, but I'm not 100%. If anyone reading this can confirm the existence of the parallel please let me know.

  1. This is my favorite Bowman baseball card design! I only bought 5 packs and have a Jim those! Maybe someday I will try to collect the whole set!

    PS....puts Bowman designs of today to shame!
