2012 Bowman Platinum Starlin Castro










2012 Bowman Platinum Starlin Castro looks like a fun and highly collectable series but once you dive into it the wow factor is there. Let’s start out with the base card and 3 parallels:

2012 Bowman Platinum #79 Starlin Castro
2012 Bowman Platinum Gold #79 Starlin Castro
2012 Bowman Platinum Emerald #79 Starlin Castro
2012 Bowman Platinum Ruby #79 Starlin Castro


None of the parallels are serial number but they are inserted at different rates.




Cutting Edge, which spotlights rookies and current Major Leaguers on die-cut cards, and Top Prospects. The Cutting Edge cards will also have autographed and/or game-used “Relic” editions which are really nice
I hope I can get both but it’s going to be an Impossible pull which means a trade or buy it which I always try to avoid.



2012 Bowman Platinum Relic Autographs Atomic Refractors what can I say it has everything patch, auto, and serial number on a refractor great looking card check it out.

Each Autographed Relic is also available in the following Refractor parallels.
• Blue Refractor serial-numbered to 199 copies
• Gold Refractor Patch serial-numbered to 50 copies
• Red Refractor Patch serial-numbered to 25 copies
• Atomic Refractor Patch serial-numbered to five copies
• SuperFractor Patch one-of-one


The major drawback with the autograph it is not on the card itself which kind of a sucks because the player never touches an actually piece that your buying just signs a sheet of paper with 50 stickers on it, definitely a cheap way of doing business. I think all of the Bowman cards are done that way in this set.
