The Bowman Baseball base-brand is being taken to an all-new level as it will now feature 110 Bowman Chrome prospect cards that will not be found in Bowman Chrome. That's right! For the first time ever, regular Bowman will include Bowman Chrome cards. The 110 Chrome cards will also serve as the first part of the 2006 Bowman Chrome set, which will ship later this summer.

Along with appearing two per pack, the 110 Chrome cards will also be accompanied by their popular Refractor counterparts - Refractor (#'d to 500), X-Fractor (#'d to 250), Blue Refractor (#'d to 150), Gold Refractor (#'d to 50), Orange Refractor (#'d to 25), Red Refractor (#'d to 5), SuperFractor (1 of 1).

And collectors know to go to Bowman when looking for top Rookie and Prospect Cards. 2006 Bowman features the highly-touted Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima, Royals prospect Alex Gordon, Tigers top pick Cameron Maybin, White Sox's Lance Broadway, the Rocket's son, Koby Clemens, Angels' Kendry Morales and much more.

Here's the break-down of the all-new Bowman:
