Description

2001 Bowman Chrome is a 352-card set consisting of 110 leading hitters and pitchers (1-110), 110 rising young stars (201-310), 110 top rookies including 20 not found in the regular Bowman set (111-200, 311-330), 20 autographed rookie Refractor cards (331-350) each serial numbered to 500 copies and two Ichiro Suzuki Rookie Cards (351) in available in English and Japanese text variations. Both Ichiro cards were only available via mail redemption whereby exchange cards were seeded into packs. In addition, an exchange card was seeded into packs for the Albert Pujols signed Rookie Card. The deadline to send these cards in was June 30th, 2003. Cards 111-200 and 311-330 are short-printed, seeded into packs at the rate of 1:4, and are available exclusively as Refractors.

This marked the first year Bowman Chrome had autographed base set cards.

According to publicly available population reports, at least three-quarters of print run of the Albert Pujols card has been slabbed by the three major professional grading services (PSA, BGS, and SGC).

Distribution

24 packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $3.99)

NOTE: Cards #311-#330 are short-printed and only available as Refractors. Before the product's release, Topps announced that these 20 players would have their sole Topps-issued rookie card in BowChro and in no other Topps/Bowman product. Some players wound up having cards in 2001 Bowman Heritage and/or 2001 Topps Traded & Rookies.

Autographed Rookie Refractors

Each Autographed Rookie Refractor is hand-numbered to 500 copies. This was the first year BowChro had autographs in the base set, and with one massive exception, the player selection did not age well.

That one exception, of course, is the Albert Pujols card, which has become one of the landmark cards of the 21st Century. Unfortunately, the Pujols packed out as a redemption (the only one in the set) which expired June 30th, 2003. Buyer beware when opening packs.

Ichiro

Before the 2001 season, Topps signed Ichiro Suzuki to a short-term contract that expired in the middle of the year (which is why he wasn't included in 2001 Bowman) or 2001 Topps Chrome. Topps came to terms with Ichiro before Bowman Chrome's release, but was unable to add him to the set. In order to get him into the product, Topps had to resort to redemption cards.

Topps announced that the Ichiro redemption cards would be produced at around the same level as the 110 short-printed rookie Refractor base cards; but half the redemptions were good for an Ichiro rookie printed in English, the other half in Japanese. All redemptions expired June 30th, 2003.

In other words, the two best rookie cards in 2001 BowChro (Ichiro and Albert Pujols), both packed out as redemptions.

  • 351a Ichiro Suzuki RC EXCH (English)
  • 351b Ichiro Suzuki RC EXCH (Japanese)

All base cards EXCEPT the 20 autographs (331-350) are available in the following parallels.

  • X-Fractor
  • Gold Refractor (serial-numbered to 99 copies)

Exchange cards for both the English and Japanese Ichiro Suzuki X-Fractor and Gold Refractor were randomly inserted. 50 copies of the Ichiro Gold card are in English, the other 49 in Japanese.
