2013 Baseball Card Windup - What I bought in 2013 Part 3

Continuing to share 2013 cards going into my Reference Album.

Bowman Platinum

I bought a blaster and a rack pack. These cards are pricey at $0.67/card.
 In a scan, these cards look a bit like Bowman Chrome Refractors, but Topps achieves this with a different technique.
The only subset is the rookie card.


There are 3 parallels, Gold, Ruby and Sapphire. I have all three, although I had to go out on eBay form the Michael Young card.

This is another interesting effect that I'd like to how is done.


A Bowman Platinum Cutting Edge Stars insert featuring Raul Mondesi's son. He played in single A Lexington this year. This is an intricately die-cut card.

Bowman Platinum Diamonds In the Rough insert.

It would be a Bowman set with out a Prospects Insert, again with multiple parallels,

The Chrome Prospect Refractor. This has a finish similar to Bowman Chrome Refractors. These also come in Blue, Gold, Green, Purple, Red, Atomic, Platinum Ice, Superfractors and X-Fractors.

Only available in a rack pack, which is why I bought one.

Bowman Platinum Top Prospects insert. I pulled three of these and hadn't heard of any of the players before.

Next up will be some Panini cards, Hometown Heroes and Panini Cooperstown.

I'd be interested in that Valera you've got there. Email me at if you'd be interested in trading. Thanks!
