Full Version: 1st Bowman Card

I have a PC of Adonis Cardona and noticed that both his 2011 and 2012 cards both say 1st Bowman Card and have the exact same pic. How can this be ?

Maybe they mean "first Bowman photo", so they aren't lying by using the same photo twice! :-)

I wish they still played Dr. Who reruns.... havent seen it in years.
FWIW, look carefully. Not the same photo. Although I guess we might judge from this the kid has pretty consistent mechanics?

Bah, I like the TARDIS theory better.
Ive noticed that also. Thats weird. I have a blue refractor of his if your interested.....

Looks the same to me one is just zoomed in more than the other. the background is the same right now to the white stripe and the height of his knee on the line. It would be extremely hard IMO to get that same exact height in 2 different pics.
If you will look, he is wearing 2 different JSY tops in the 2 cards. Look at the #s on the back of the JSY. They're different. As to the original question, not sure how you can say both are first Bowman cards.

But they're human just like you and I and probably make mistakes just the same. I can't imagine how many cards they have to deal with and how many different players getting drafted (there's like 50 rounds in each draft). So, it could be rather easy to make mistakes like this and put 1st Bowman card even though they had one previously, especially when they're down to deadlines.

They show them on directv, I always see the advertisement but never watch it.

Yes this is the same photo--they just digitally changed it to the new Blue Jays Uni's
