Collectors who are on the search for 2013 Bowman Sterling football will have to head to the nearest hobby shop.

The hobby-exclusive product hit shelves in late October featuring a slew of new rookies with a few veterans sprinkled in.

Each box of 2013 Bowman Sterling comes with six packs and five cards in each pack. Each pack will typically contain five cards with one autograph, a jumbo relic and three base cards. Every box will also have at least one patch card, one autograph relic and one autograph patch inside.

In addition, there will be a box topper.

The autograph checklist will feature up to 80 names of rookies and many veterans, many of them second- and third-year players. The autographs will come with six parallels: Blue (numbered to 99), Black (#’d to 50), Gold (#’d to 25), Prism (#’d to 15), Superfractor (1-of-1) and Printing Plates (1-of-1).

Up to 40 subjects will be featured on the Autographed Rookie Relic cards. In addition to single autographs, collectors can find cards signed by up to six rookies.

Each pack will contain at least a Jumbo Relic Card, but with more than just rookies this year. There will also be veteran Jumbo Relic Cards as well with the cards coming in a number of parallel versions.

Topps is including box toppers once again. These will feature Jumbo Rookie Patch cards similar to last year’s product. However, some box toppers will feature a Multiple Rookie Autograph Patch with up to four rookies. There will also be one Prism Refracor Dual Autographs Dual Relic card in every case.

The base set will be rookie heavy, which is expected for a Bowman product. Of the 100 cards in the base set, 80 of them will be rookies. The base set will come with Blue Refractor, Black Refractor, Gold Refractor, Prism Refractor, Superfractor and Printing Plate parallels.

    Sweet looking cards but a little out of my price range I’m afraid.

    Very disappointed as a team collector. Only 2 Ravens, Flacco, and one RC of a seventh rd pick. No way I’m buying this.

    I’d say you hit the nail right on the head, Mike.
