Tigers Checklist: 2009 Bowman

Let's end the night on a fresh note, away from all those darn trade rumors. Sure, Dave Dombrowski said that the Tigers aren't having a fire sale...but I'm getting off track. No trade grumblings for now, just some nice cards.

2009 Bowman was not particularly well received when it came out, but I certainly hope that whatever criticism was hurled its way wasn't directed at the base cards. These things are flat-out elegant. Love 'em. And that picture of Armando Galarraga? Absolutely priceless--that is one of those cards that you remember years down the line.

Your 2009 Bowman Detroit Tigers were a compact bunch. 6 cards in the base set. 2 Regular Prospect and 1 WBC Prospect who was in the Tigers' system at the time of the WBC. Those are technically inserts. Also inserts are the Chrome Versions of those cards.

As is Bowman's way, there are a bunch of parallels on the base set and prospects, and even more parallels on the Chrome Prospects. Remember, for now we're doing base cards and inserts only (i.e. no parallels) in these galleries, so here we go:
