The hotly-anticipated Bowman Mega Boxes are hitting store shelves prior to their advertised release date of May 23. This product, which is a Target exclusive, includes 5 packs of 2018 Bowman baseball and 2 packs of Mega Box Chrome that can only be found in these boxes. The MSRP for these boxes is $14.99. However, secondary market prices are showing completed sales in the $35-40 range consistently.

Driving the price of these boxes up is the inclusion of stars and prospects such as Shohei Ohtani, Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., and Ronald Acuna.

But, over the weekend short-printed variations started appearing for sale and we have some info to help you spot these cards just a little quicker than normal.

It’s all in the code! Look at the back of the card where all the Topps fine print is at the bottom. The bottom line will read CODE#CMP027_ _ _. If the code ends in 738, you have one of the SSP’s. If it ends in 722, it’s a regular base card.


Here’s the complete list of SSP’s available in these Mega Boxes:

  • BCP1 Ronald Acuna
  • ​BCP 7 Carter Kieboom
  • BCP 14 Kyle Wright
  • BCP38 Mitch Keller
  • BCP50 Eloy Jimenez
  • BCP61 Brendan McKay
  • BCP68 Brendan McKay
  • BCP93 Royce Lewis
  • BCP100 Gleyber Torres
  • BCP150 Vladimir Guerrero, Jr.
