Well, I busted a box of 2010 Bowman Chrome today. What can I say? For the first time in a long time, Bowman Chrome is an Epic Fail. The cards are poorly cut and many have a coating of white powder on them. The biggest issue is that the backs are terribly off-center while the fronts generally are centered. Perhaps it’s time to send the Printers back to school?
The Breaks Down
Base Cards: 25 (4 RC) – 0 Duplicates
Prospect Base: 35 (32 1st BC) – 0 Duplicates

Collation of the product looks good as there were no duplicates, but the design look eerily familiar from past years Bowman Chrome products.
I do have 18 wrappers here. Perhaps the wrapper promotion will be better.
