If you have a regular base card, this code ends in 835. For variations, it’s 855. Remembering this can be much easier than remembering photos.

    2020 Bowman Base Paper Set Color Variations found.

    This base card paper set has over 100 cards with color variations.

    The variation in these cards is 1 has a Tan Border and the other has a Gray Border, also the uniform colors, face colors, and backgrounds are different. This is easy to see if you are looking for it, but has seemed to pass by everyone who has sold these base cards and packs.

    Literally no one knows this before today. There are no listing anywhere that point this out. I have not shared this and have been buying up these cards and packs for months.

    These variations are on every card with a Black RC emblem and all of the Base Player cards.

    The variations are not present on the plain prospect cards or the cards with a 1st in the corner.

    I have a variations of every paper card player with RC emblem and or a Base player, so it is all of the cards and not just a few.

    I also have 30 or so players with uniform color changes. I have one player that has a Dark Purple Jersey and a Dark Blue Jersey with the same card # (that card mysteriously has a gray border on both variations), but it also has a tan border version.
    NOTE: The Tan (or light border) cards seem to be the natural color cards, with normal face colors, uniform colors and backgrounds.

    Feel free to share this, because I am letting this news out today.

    Fan out your own cards with the left border showing and look for dark and light shaded outside borders or,

    Go look at listings where they have 20-40 card lots ( of the same player) all fanned out so that the left borders are exposed and I guarantee that when you mouse over the picture to make it large, you will see the tan and gray borders in every lot that has a RC and or is a Base player.

    Good luck and happy hunting.
