Shohei Ohtani Autographs in 2018 Bowman Baseball? Indeed.
Last week Topps teased a peek at an autograph signing they had with Shohei Ohtani. Cards were being signed, but they didn’t say where they’d be found. Now we know where some of them are going.
The card maker took to Instagram to show off close-ups of a pair of Bowman Chrome Blue Refractors. Note the two styles of signatures.
Shortly thereafter, Topps did confirm that they would indeed be found in 2018 Bowman and not a later Bowman set.
2018 Bowman Baseball is scheduled to release towards the end of April.
Collectors will also find another Bowman Chrome Shohei Ohtani autograph in 2018, this time showing him batting. It looks as though this one will be part of September’s 2018 Bowman Chrome.
These weren’t the only cards Ohtani autographed during the signing. His reps showed off some other cards presumably for 2018 Topps Chrome and a mini card for 2018 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball.
