2010 Bowman Dodger Throwbacks

The 2010 Bowman Baseball product has a special throwback set included that hearkens back to its' heyday in 1992. This was the year that Topps Bowman release really took off. Originally reintroduced to the hobby in 1989, the 1992 set was starkly different from prior years. They converted the set into a premium product complete with thicker white card stock instead of the brownish drab card stock of previous years. Rookies also continued to remain their primary focus. That 1992 set consist of rookie cards for Mike Piazza, Manny Ramirez, Carlos Delgado, Mariano Rivera and Trevor Hoffman.

For this years set, they take the 1992 design and insert current players. It just looks phenomenal. Check out the Dodgers from the set below.

  1. '92 Bowman is the best set. Especially the backs.
