2022 Bowman Chrome Road to UEFA U21 Euros Brings Brand to Soccer

Share:

Bowman Chrome is making the jump to the soccer pitch. The brand makes it debut for the sport with 2022 Bowman Chrome Road to UEFA U21 Euros and it’s bringing a lot of familiar elements including Refractors, autographs and the “Bowman 1st” designation.

Hobby boxes are where to look for autographs as there’s one in each. Topps also has hobby LITE boxes that don’t promise any signatures but they do have exclusive parallels and a lower price point.

Hobby LITE boxes have Black and White RayWave Refractors as well. These are tough and represent the only signatures available in that configuration.

Multi-signature themes include Dual Bowman Prospect Autographs, which also have one-of-one Superfractor parallels, and a Bowman Ultimate Book Card that folds out to include 24 total signatures.

2022 Bowman Chrome Road to UEFA U21 Euros has four additional insert sets, all of which should appear at least once in a hobby box.

1989 Bowman (1:8 hobby packs) is based off of the 1989 Bowman Baseball design, the first modern set to include the brand. Adjustments have been made to the icon on the front and these are traditionally sized, unlike the baseball set’s slightly larger dimensions. Of course, these are done in chromium as well.

Other inserts include Carry the Flag (1:8 hobby packs), Home Strip Hopefuls (1:6 hobby packs) and XInevitables (1:12 hobby packs).
