Description

2012 Bowman Sterling is a 50-card set, supplemented by a 50-card Prospects "insert," released the week of December 12, 2012. Each four-card pack will contain a minimum of three autographs - an increase from two in the previous year's product.

Japan Edition

For the first time since 1994 Upper Deck, a baseball card set was released for a specific geographic region. The 2012 Bowman Sterling Japan Edition was distributed exclusively to the Asian market and contains special "Japan-Fractors." Every six-pack Japan Edition box will contain two Japan-Fractors, each serial-numbered to 25 copies. The design of the Japan-Fractors is similar to the Row 0 cards in 1998 Flair Showcase. Approximately ten percent of the overall 2012 Bowman Sterling production run was shipped to Japan.

Each Japan-Fractor base card and Prospect insert was serial-numbered to 25 copies with a one-of-one Japan SuperFractor also available. Japan-Fractor Autographs were numbered to only five.

In addition, every other Japan Edition case (1:16 boxes or 1:96 packs) will yield an autograph of one of three Japanese players - each serial-numbered to 75 copies, and an Ichiro Die-Cut Manufactured Relic serial-numbered to 100.

In an effort to satisfy American collectors, one-of-one SuperFractor parallels were inserted at the last minute, exclusive to the non-Japan boxes.

Distribution

Six packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $50). 12 boxes per case. Hobby only.
