2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball - Prospect Card Checklist
The Bowman Chrome Prospect cards fall 2 per Hobby Pack and are numbered #BC131 - BC285. The cards #1 - 130 can be found in regular 2008 Bowman Baseball boxes. The most valuable cards are #241 - #285 which are the Autograph parallel versions. 

Razor decided to make a leap into the baseball prospect market by signing many of the top 2008 MLB Draft Picks including #1 overall pick Tim Beckham to exclusive deals. It may have made an impact as many of those players would have been featured in this Prospect set. The Autograph parallels feature some players with Autographs in other sets including Austin Jackson who is in 2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition. Many of these players are still young and time remains for many to make an impact in the MLB and in the hobby world. The price of hobby boxes is about half of what normal Bowman Chrome boxes sell for, so if some of these prospects get hot, expect prices to rise. It can be noted that card #281 Angel Villalona Redemption Autograph used to sell well on the secondary market until he was involved in a murder outside the United States. His future in the MLB remains a mystery.
