Description

2007 Bowman's Best is a 99-card set, supplemented by a 60-card Prospects insert, released by Topps in January, 2008. After a one year hiatus, Topps brought back Bowman's Best and structured it as a hybrid of their Bowman and Finest brands -- much like the original Bowman Best set. Like Finest, each Hobby box contained three smaller five-pack miniboxes.

Each minibox will yield one veteran autograph, one Rookie Autograph, one Prospect Autograph and two serial-numbered Rookie base/Prospect insert cards.

This would be the last Bowman's Best set until its 2015 revival.

Distribution

Three five-pack "miniboxes" per box, five cards per pack (MSRP: $20/pack). Eight boxes per case. Hobby only.
