    Question The Shohei Ohtani Bowman Chrome Autograph That's Not Supposed to Exist

    Auction Link - https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-1-Shohei-...rue&rmvSB=true

    According to the Bowman Mega Box checklist, Ohtani does NOT have any autographs.

    https://www.topps.com/wp/wp-content/...-Checklist.pdf

    (I've already sent a tweet to Topps about this card's authenticity.)

    Wonder how many were made.

    Topps has officially pulled a fast one on us.

    From their Twitter -

    "Unannounced Shohei Ohtani redemptions for 2018 Bowman Chrome base autographs were placed into random packs of the Bowman mega box, available at Target. A new checklist has been updated, which features the redemption card. A limited number are available. These are not parallels, but the base level autographs from 2018 Bowman baseball."

    In other words, they're extras which didn't make it into regular Bowman packs, not a "mega" version.

    And in response to a tweet, none are the Japanese version of his sig.

    I've been looking in north Atlanta with 0 luck.

    The targets here don't even bother putting them out.

    Nothing in Ohio unless your in cahoots with an excel rep... My local Target sold out to 1 guy who bought all of the Bowman and the Mega's. I refuse to believe that's a coincidence. Hmm, anyone have any info on how to contact Excel's upper brass?
