1st Bowman Cards Top 100 MLB Prospects

While 1st Bowman cards of baseball’s top 100 MLB prospects don’t constitute as a player’s true rookie card, they are still incredibly valued in the baseball-card collecting community. In many cases, there are people who prefer to collect prospect cards over a player’s MLB cards.

Since we love a Happy Hobby, we make sure everyone is aware of all the top rookie cards (and top 1st Bowman cards for prospects) in the four major sports:

There are all sorts of different card collectors, really. From vintage card collectors only to collectors of 1st Bowman cards, but really, most card collectors like to collect a mix of vintage cards, modern cards, rookie cards and prospect cards.

When Did 1st Bowman Cards Begin?

While the Bowman brand has been around before even Topps started manufacturing baseball cards, making baseball cards from 1948 to 1955, in direct competition with Topps. Once they stopped making baseball cards, it would be a few decades when that brand wasn’t around at all. Topps bought the Bowman brand, and they eventually started making Bowman Baseball cards again in 1989, right in the middle of what was considered the “Junk Wax Era,” which means they were overproduced and helped saturate the market.

It wasn’t until 1996 that 1st Bowman cards were used, but it wasn’t until 2003 that 1st Bowman cards became what they are now. Prospect lovers seek out 1st Bowman cards like gold, which makes the term “prospectors” even more appropriate!
