Bowman Platinum Baseball Returns With Added Autographs, GU Items

Bowman Platinum Baseball returns in 2012 with autographs from the hottest prospects in the game and all-new game-used and autograph content.

If you love the thrill of the chase of the next big thing in Major League Baseball, Topps is offering another product to help you make that happen.


Bowman Platinum Baseball returns in 2012, in July, with autographs from the hottest prospects in the game and all-new, game-used and autograph content.

Each box will include two Refractor on-card autographs and one Refractor autographed relic card. Thirty-five prospects signed for this set. There will be numerous parallels for the Refractor autographs, ganging from being numbered to 399 all the way down to 1-of-1 offerings.

There will also be 35 Purely Platinum autographs – metal cards signed in gold ink and numbered 1-of-1. Also look for dual and triple autographed cards and even Hexagraphs book cards that will feature six autographs.

Another big draw of the set is the Arizona Fall League All-Stars Redemption Program. Redemption cards found in the Bowman Platinum set will be good for the chance to own game-used memorabilia from players in the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game, including 20 game-used caps. Bryce Harper items are included.


The 200-card base set and all the extras will be available the week of July 23, with hobby shop orders due by March 15. For more information, visit www.topps.com.
