The Man in the Mirror

I've spent an unordinary amount of time on this website defending the greatness that is Bowman's forgotten love child, Bowman's Best. During the Bowman Chrome age, especially as pack inserted, certified autographs of young teenage boys took over collecting, it appears Bowman's Best was inexplicably left in the dust.
