so what exactly is the bowman chrome series, i see its a tad pricey and 4 cards per pack....is it mostly rookies?
i've started buying a pack here and there again and wouldnt mind getting a box of those if its full of mostly prospects first cards
It's basically the regular Bowman series, but with the metallic/shiny look.
The Bowman Chrome cards are worth more than the regular. That's mostly all there is to it (different inserts, too).
Here are the traditional rookie cards of note (that I can see)
There are autographed RCs of Fielder and Barfield.
They have prospect cards for guys like Alex Gordon, Chris Iannetta, Jon Lester, Matt Garza, Brandon Wood, Cameron Maybin, and Hunter Pence.

Chris Iannetta was born on Krypton and transported to Earth as an infant and saves the universe when he's not getting on base every plate appearance.
