Since I am not a prospector, Bowman has never really excited me. But then again, where else but Bowman can you get cards of players that you never heard of and probably never will.
For the third year in a row, the cards have white borders. This comes after a nearly 15 year run that saw black as a primary Bowman color. It also looks like the pictures were doctored a bit to make them look more 3D-like. It seems as if a border was added around each of the players.
The Cubs snagged three spots on the 220 card base set and five more among the 110 prospects.
Tomorrow I'll have the five Cubs prospects that made the set. I'll take a look at the cards and also at how these future Cubs are doing so far this season.
