BASE SET
The 2017 Bowman Platinum base set has 100 cards. Key veterans are mixed in with a heavy dose of rookies. Besides Bellinger, other Rookie Cards include Aaron Judge, Andrew Benintendi, Yoan Moncada, Dansby Swanson and Alex Bregman.

Base parallels come in Purple, Green, Orange and Gold. Ice Pattern and Black are also available as exclusives to specific packs.

Seven players also have variation short prints that use a separate photo.

Similar to last year, base cards and inserts use foil stock. This gives them some shine, but not the same chromium style found in Bowman Chrome.

AUTOGRAPHS
It’s a Bowman set, so, as collectors have come to expect, the focus on much of the 2017 Bowman Platinum Baseball autographs is on players working their way up to the majors.

The bulk of the signed content comes from Top Prospects Autographs. Over 40 players are on the checklist including Brendan Rodgers, Mickey Moniak and Eloy Jimenez.

In addition to the basic versions, these autographs have Purple, Green and Gold parallels that are available in all packs. Orange cards are exclusive to the Collector Box. Royal Blue autograph parallels are in Fat Packs while Black versions can be found in Value Boxes.

Prospects also appear in Platinum Cut Autographs. They’re mixed with rookies and veterans in both Platinum Presence Autographs and the die-cut Tools of the Craft Autographs.

Other signed insert sets in 2017 Bowman Platinum Baseball include eleven Major League Baseball Autographs and 14 Rookie Radar Autographs.

INSERTS
Top Prospects is similar to the Prospect inserts found in modern Bowman and Bowman Chrome releases. The 110-card checklist includes many key names who are currently in the minors. However, they’re pictured in the MLB uniforms. Of the 110 cards, ten are short prints. On top of these, Mickey Moniak, Jason Groome and Corey Ray also have image variations.

Top Prospects have several parallels including Green, Purple, Gold, and one-of-one Printing Plates. Additional parallels are exclusive to certain pack types. Orange cards are only in Collector Boxes. Value Boxes are the exclusive home of Black Top Prospects cards. Finally, Fat Packs have Royal Blue cards that aren’t available anywhere else.

Rounding out the 2017 Bowman Platinum inserts are Bowman Next Generations (30 cards), Rookie Radar (20 cards) and Platinum Presence (46 cards).
