CC Collection: The 1999 Bowmans

Hands down my favorite mass-market issue for CC's rookie year are the 1999 Bowmans. I'm not a huge fan of the 1999 Topps design but feel the Bowman design goes well (or at least OK) with a kind of awkward posed shot.
Top left to right: 1999 Bowman, Bowman International
Bottom left to right: 1999 Bowman Chrome, Bowman Chrome International, Bowman Refractor

Missing, to my knowledge, are the 1999 Bowman gold, the Bowman Chrome International Refractor and the Bowman Chrome Gold Refractor, all of which I imagine are a bit pricey these days.

Have a good one and good night Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!
