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.
Photobucket

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
Photobucket

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.

2003 Donruss Signature INKredible Three Kerry Wood


Randomly inserted into packs, this card feature three cubs greats Wood, Prior and Banks. The signatures are found on the front and are very valuable for a print run of 50. According to the 2009 baseball online price guide this one card is worth 300 dollars. This could be considered one of Woody’s most expensive cards especially at that high of a print run.
