2021 Bowman Sterling Baseball Sticks with Bulk Autographs

Share:

Modern Bowman has a lot of different baseball card lines now. Prospects are a common theme that runs throughout all of these products, but each does it in a slightly different way. For 2021 Bowman Sterling Baseball, it’s the promise of an autograph in every pack. This makes for five signed cards per hobby box versus the one or two collectors will find from a regular box of Bowman and Bowman Chrome.
