A-Rod Throwback

Alex-Rodriguez.jpg?id=73a128e4-a712-481a-90f1-dfcf17ca931c&size=original&side=front&.jpg Alex-Rodriguez.jpg?id=73a128e4-a712-481a-90f1-dfcf17ca931c&size=original&side=back&.jpg

In 2005 Alex Rodriguez signed an endorsement deal with Topps. To celebrate, 2005 Bowman Chrome included these "cards that never were" from mid-90s Bowman sets. From his MLB debut in 1994 through 1997, Topps was unable to come to terms with A-Rod. (Please refer to our 1993 Topps Traded page for more information on A-Rod's mid-90s Topps exclusion.)

NOTE: The Bowman Chrome brand did not debut until 1997, so the 1994-96 mock-ups are for a card brand that didn't exist.

Each card is also available in the following parallels.

  • Refractor (serial-numbered to 499 copies)
  • X-Fractor (serial-numbered to 99 copies)
  • SuperFractor (one-of-one)
  • 94-AR Alex Rodriguez
  • 95-AR Alex Rodriguez
