Pack Break: 1998 Bowman's Best Baseball

So, what are we looking at?

'98 Bowman's Best is a 200 card set with 100 prospects and 100 veterans. Vets have a gold background while the fresh meat have silver ones. From my experience, [on average] you pull 3 vets and 3 prospects in the 6 card packs. Of the two parallels in this set, refractors are found 1:20 on average and numbered to 400 while Atomic Refractors are found 1:82 on average and numbered to 100.

Here we go...

34 Fred McGriff

156 Jason Grilli
162 Chad Hermansen
44 Ryan Klesko

60 Greg Maddux
149 Mark Kotsay

Hmm... 4 Atlanta Braves of past and present (McGriff, Kelsko, Maddux, Kotsay)... what are the odds on that?

I've never been a big fan of the backgrounds used in this series, but the pulls weren't half bad in this pack.

What do you think?

That's all I got...

Nice-looking Kotsay.
I expected a lot more from him back in the day.
