Anyway, I did get a chance to go by my LCS today and picked up a bunch of packs and the shopkeeper was nice enough to let me go through his pulls from 2012 Bowman. I picked up some Orioles and a few others from his stack of cards, namely the below Bryce Harper, some Yankees for Drew and an Aroldis Chapman for Andrew.
I like the Bowman's Best cards. Here is one of Miguel Sano. He was a pretty highly sought after international free agent. I haven't heard much about him after he signed, but apparently the raw skills are there. We'll see about that.
In all, 2012 Bowman isn't too bad. I didn't get a whole lot of variations or parallels. I also didn't get any autos, but having purchased only 7 packs, I didn't really expect much, if anything, at all. I do like that they went away from the standard black border that they have used for the past several years. Sometimes change is good.
