2023 Bowman Chrome Baseball Image Variations Guide
The 2023 Bowman Chrome Baseball Image Variations cover 15 of the set’s rookies. In typical SSP fashion, they adopt the same layout and design as the base set — albeit as Refractors — and switches out the photos.
For most, it’s a most casual ballpark look with players in their warmup gear or putting a little extra swagger in their step.

How to Know You Definitely Have an Image Variation
Outside of the photo, there are a couple of ways to confirm a 2023 Bowman Chrome Baseball Image Variation by looking at the back of the card.
First up, variations are done on Refractor stock. But base Refractor parallels have a couple of things that variations don’t. For starters, they’re serial numbered to 499. So if you get a Refractor and see the serial number on the back, it’s just a parallel.
Also, regular Refractors are labelled as such on the back in the middle of the gray space above the player’s name. So if it says “Refractor,” it’s not an Image Variation.
Then there’s a fine print and the CMP code at the bottom. The end of the string of numbers in bold changes for different card types. When you’re concerned with variations, these are the two you need to know:
- Base – 863
- Variations – 906
