The first box I opened was 2014 Bowman Chrome in which my parents purchased for me. It seems a little odd that I'm 32 years old and my mom still buys me cards like I'm 10, but hey I'm not going to complain. She also surprised me with the Gregory Polanco autograph jersey so in terms of my collection this has been one of the best years that I can remember.
I use to avoid Chrome as for years the Pirate minor league system was void of talent. Now they are considered one of the best systems in baseball so they are normally represented well in the prospect oriented sets. Here are some of the highlights of the box.
A mix of the Pirates that are in this years set.
This years Bowman Chrome is a cheap bust that guarantees two autos. It is a product that in most instances will not yield any true value until a few years after you open. I was happy to pull some Pirates including the Harold Ramirez so it was a win for me. Extra bonus was that I didn't even have to pay for the box! Let me know if you are interested in any of the non Pirates.
Thanks for reading.
