The prospect hunt begins anew in 2020 Bowman Baseball. The popular product offers the first Bowman cards and the first Bowman Chrome cards of the season.

Estimated Release Date: May 22, 2020 (likely delayed for many)
Hobby Configuration: 10 cards per pack, 24 packs per box, 12 boxes per case
2020 Bowman Baseball Hobby Box Break
UPDATE (May 18): Although the official release date remains May 22, Topps notified distributors that only a portion of 2020 Bowman Baseball is ready to ship in time, so many shops and collectors will experience further delays. As a result, only some of the product will go out on time and it could take up to three weeks before the set is fully released.
While prospects run the show, there is still a base set with veterans and rookies. The paper set for 2020 Bowman Baseball offers 100 base cards and 150 prospects with several parallels. This includes the retail Camo parallels for prospects that are only found in Value Packs.

The prospects are also treated to Bowman Chrome editions and even more parallels of the Refractor persuasion. Naturally, those with the "1st Bowman" designation normally see the most attention. And that is especially true for the signed versions highlighted below.
2020 Bowman Baseball Chrome Prospect Refractor Parallels Breakdown
Joining the base set and parallels in 2020 Bowman Baseball are multiple inserts. New for 2020, 1990 Bowman (1:8 packs) looks back at the '90 design 30 years later. Also new is Hidden Finds for under-the-radar draft picks and Spanning the Globe with home country flags for international talent.
Returning inserts consist of Bowman Scouts' Top 100 (1:4 packs), Rookie of the Year Favorites (1:8 packs) and Talent Pipeline (1:12 packs).
Each insert set supplies Atomic Refractor (#/150), Green (#/99 - Retail), Gold Refractor (#/50), Orange Refractor (#/25 - Hobby), Red Refractor (#/5), and SuperFractor (1/1) parallels, as well.
And that takes us to the driving force of the 2020 Bowman Baseball checklist. Rising stars from the game fill out the Chrome Prospect Autograph lineup. Players designated as rookies for 2020 also are in play via the Chrome Rookie Autograph set, but the Refractor rainbow is not quite as large as the prospects.
