Since I haven't opened a lot of packs of cards lately, I decided to stop at Target on the way home and see if they had some new Bowman Platinum. I decided on 2 of the value packs. 3 regular packs and a value pack exclusive 3 purple prospect cards.
From what I've seen from my small sample size break, I like what I see so far. Last year's product wasn't terrible but this year's is really nice looking. All of the base cards are refractors so thats something I haven't seen before.
Heres some of the highlights of the break:
A bunch of base cards, most notably Aroldis Chapman, Jason Heyward, Tim Lincecum and Albert Pujols.
A few prospects: Manny Banuelos and Tyler Skaggs
3 Prospect x-Fractors (these look great!): Jonathan Singleton, Eduardo Escobar and Kyle Russell
6 Purple Prospects (I'm not crazy about the color of these): Brad Brach, Brad Holt, Matt Lipka, Dustin Ackley, Jared Mitchell and Ronnie Welty
I got one gold parallel: Aroldis Chapman
and I was lucky enough to pull an autograph card:
Hayden Simpson. According to Baseball Reference, he hasn't had a great first pro season but he still has plenty of time to turn it around.
I guess I did pretty well for just a few packs. I'll probably pick up another pack or two in the near future and see if I can get lucky again.
