2024 Bowman Baseball: Top Prospects, Hobby Boxes, Checklist & More!

It’s a baseball prospector’s favorite time of year! 2024 Bowman Baseball will be dropping Wednesday, May 8, and there’s no shortage of prospects to chase. Topps revealed on Tuesday a cool wrinkle that some of the prospects will have “My 1st Bowman Auto” inscriptions on their 001/150 Blue Refractor Autograph cards. On top of that, Pete Rose will appear as a Retrofractor variation for the Cincinnati Reds and will also have Retrofractor autographs. It’s the first time Rose will be featured in a licensed Topps product since 1989. There are also new features like the 1955 Bowman Anime case hits and incredibly rare Origin of Greatness inserts. Let’s take a look at what else to expect in 2024 Bowman!
