What’s In the Box: 2022 Bowman Baseball

We’re starting the month of May off with a bombshell of a product with 2022 Bowman Baseball hitting the hands of sellers and hobby shops everywhere today. This one is all about rookies and prospects, making it one of the more celebrated releases of the year. You know we have to talk about it.

What to Expect:

Cards per pack: 10

Packs per box: 24

Boxes per case: 12

Base Set

Bowman Baseball features two separate base sets. First, there is the 100-card standard set, which highlights the rookies and veterans of the MLB in 12 different parallels, including the 1/1 Platinum parallels and the 1/1 Printing Plates.

Here you can hunt the highly coveted Wander Franco rookie card, or snag one of baseball’s biggest veteran stars like Vlad Guerrero Jr and Fernando Tatis. 

Next, the 150-card prospect set features some of the up-and-comers who look to make their appearance in the show in the near future. As for big names, Kahlil Watson (SS, Miami Marlins), Curtis Mead (3B/1B, Tampa Bay Rays), George Valera (OF, Cleveland Guardians), and Elly de la Cruz (SS, Cincinnati Reds) are the four you’re looking for.

Of course, that’s all subject to change. Part of the fun with Bowman Baseball is that sometimes prospects light the world on fire out of nowhere. A meh pull now might turn out to be a huge hit in two years.
