2011 Bowman Chrome Throwbacks
Design Notes: The set uses the 2001 Bowman design, with black and red borders (the black got cut off by my scanner) and a grey/silver arc with a facsimile player signature.
Parallels and Similars: Three refractor versions were made.
Distribution: Cards were randomly inserted into packs of 2011 Bowman Chrome.
Thoughts: Is 10 years long enough to do a throwback insert? I think Bowman's design has been quite stagnant and really the 2011 design isn't much different from the 2001 design. This is a set I have zero interest in.
