2018 Bowman Chrome Draft Baseball Variation Refractors are available for some of the top picks and prospects in the end-of-the-year release. While the cards cover 14 of the set’s base cards, the variations are offered in Refractor form only. That means all come with the rainbow shine.

Like most variations, these take on the same general look as the regular cards, including the number. The major difference comes in the photo. Variation images don’t follow any sort of specific theme.

2018 Bowman Chrome Draft Baseball Variation Refractors don’t have the same color rainbow as the main set. They’re limited to the regular Refractors. That said, half of the set has autographed versions as well. These are numbered to 99.
