Mets 2011 Bowman Platinum baseball cards

Brad Emaus' 2011 Bowman Platinum card

Earlier this summer, Topps put out a set called Bowman Platinum. It’s basically an upscale version of the regular Bowman set, with a mix of major league stars and a handful of rookies along with a bunch of prospects. I opted to pass on it, because I’m trying to limit my baseball card purchases to the major sets that manage to include a decent percentage of the guys on the team.

Sean from Condition:Poor made me reconsider Bowman Platinum when he showed a scan of Brad Emaus‘ card. Since I forgot that Emaus also had a card in Topps Series II, I decided to get the Bowman Platinum Mets cards after all.

In addition to Emaus, the set includes four other Mets: David Wright, Jose Reyes, Johan Santana and Ike Davis. (If you need any of them, let me know – I have at least one extra of everyone but Reyes.)

Here’s the checklist, plus the prospect “inserts” that I did not bother to get:

  • 5 Brad Emaus
  • 36 Johan Santana
  • 62 David Wright
  • 69 Jose Reyes
  • 84 Ike Davis
  • BPP36 Aderlin Rodriguez
  • BPP44 Wilmer Flores
  • BPP66 Matt Harvey
  • BPP78 Brad Holt
  • CPP81 Cesar Puello
There are also some autographs and the usual assortment of parallels to collect, if you’re so inclined. Here’s a look at the rest of the regular cards.
