    Exclamation Shohei Ohtani To Have 2018 Topps Chrome and Bowman Chrome Autos

    Hitting in TC and pitching in BC.

    I am assuming Bowman, not Bowman Chrome, considering the latter is eight months away.

    Screenshots below.

    Neat to see how the color refractors will look in TC.

    Also, I'm considering buying a case of Heritage (for the 18th year in a row). Has it been indicated one way or the other if he'll have anything in there? Redemptions?

    Almost looks like a stack of Green refractors and Gold refractors on the right side image.

    Glad they're not redemptions. Time to start saving up!

    I'll bet it will be partial redemptions. Just as long as there are live autos...

    After seeing a closeup of the Bowman, you can spot the RC tag above the Angels' logo at the bottom left, so as expected, he's not a "1st" prospect auto. He's indeed a rookie auto.

    Although, he could still have a "base" card with the "1st" logo.

    Awesome addition!

    But I gotta admit, I had NO IDEA they made the cards this far out.

    I know they needed to do them early for the autos, but still a lot earlier than I thought...

    Confirmed - they are in fact to be inserted in Bowman, not Bowman Chrome. Plus, he signed in both English AND Japanese! And you'll also note the numbering is on the fronts this time.

    @Jaypers @madbull34 Just had a thought, and purely gut speculation, but I wonder if Ohtani is signing his Japanese name on the first 25 of each base/parallel print run. I noticed the blue refractor is 21/150 which made me think of that.

    If you watch the video of Ohtani signing his cards, they seem to be passed to him to sign without thought of serial number, so I doubt it.

    FYI, a reminder to everyone - Green Ref Autos will be in Retail, so with Ohtani's inclusion I expect packs/boxes to disappear from the shelves quickly. And of course that includes Mega Boxes.
