Definition

A 1st Bowman chrome card is a player’s “first” professional card, along with the 1st Bowman paper card. The chrome version is arguably one of the most desirable “base” baseball cards a player can have, along with a player’s Topps Chrome rookie card.

Is a 1st Bowman Chrome Card a Rookie Card?

Technically, a 1st Bowman chrome card is not a rookie card, as the true “rookie card” label is generally reserved for a Topps flagship release. That said, the fact that isn’t a true rookie doesn’t at all take away from its value, and in fact, the 1st Bowman chrome is often more valuable than a true Topps rookie card.

For example, take a look at Ronald Acuna at the moment (these are lowest available Buy It Now prices for PSA 10 copies).

Does Every Player Have a 1st Bowman?

Unfortunately, every player does not have a 1st Bowman card. Bowman hasn’t always used the 1st Bowman emblem and designation, and has even gone “on and off” with it over the years. Now it’s here to stay, but it hasn’t always been the case.

Second, it would be near impossible for Topps to predict and print a 1st Bowman for every player to be included on different checklists. In fact, some of the biggest name player’s in today’s game don’t even have a 1st Bowman “base” card, like Juan Soto, who only has a 1st Bowman chrome autograph, and if you’re looking for Steven Kwan rookie cards, a 1st Bowman won’t be on the list.

And then sometimes, mistakes are made. Pirates prospect, Liover Peguero doesn’t have the 1st Bowman logo on his “first” Bowman:

Are There 1st Bowman Chrome Refractors?

Yes, staying true to form, there are 1st Bowman refractors, and refractor parallels including the different colors and numbered cards, along with superfractors.

Is a 1st Bowman the Same as Bowman 1st Edition?

No, 1st Bowman cards and Bowman 1st Edition cards are completely different. While a player can have a 1st Bowman/1st Edition card, the Bowman 1st Edition is considered a printed “set” of cards with everyone on the checklist receiving the “1st Edition” logo. On the other hand, as mentioned above, the 1st Bowman logo is applied within a set, and doesn’t constitute a release of its own.

In terms of chrome, there are not 1st Bowman chrome/1st Edition cards. Instead, 1st Editions offer foil finishes instead of chrome.

For example, here is a Jasson Dominguez 1st Bowman, 1st Edition:

And here is an example of a 1st Edition foil. Notice the shiny foil finish, but no mention of “chrome” on the Bowman logo. This is also an example of a 1st Edition that is not a 1st Bowman:

Where Can You Find 1st Bowman Chrome Cards?

2022 Bowman has already been released, and within it are Bowman Chrome prospects, including 1st Bowman chrome cards for many top prospects. In addition, according to the Topps product release schedule, 2022 Bowman Chrome is set to come out September 14, 2022, and of course, will include 1st Bowman chrome cards.

So, as you can see, there are 1st Bowman chrome cards to be found in 2022 Bowman, and then separately in 2022 Bowman Chrome. If looking for cards from previous years, you’ll find much of the same setup.
