2015 Bowman Baseball Value pack

This one has been sitting for a while gathering, dare I say it, dust. Shame on me.
The 2015 Bowman set consists of 150 base cards, including 30 Rookies. This is a reduction from last year,which had a 220 card base set. There are a number of base parallels including Silver, Purple, Blue, Gold, Retail-only Green, hobby-only Orange, Red, Black, Silver Ice, jumbo-only Red Ice and White Ice.  
Traditionally Bowman is known for its prospects, which has grown to 150 cards. These are also available in a number of parallels; Purple, Blue, Gold, Retail-only Green, hobby-only Orange, Red and Superfractor. There are also parallels that were released in the Asian market only Black and Red. 

The Red Sox checklist contains:
#27 Mookie Betts
#76 David Ortiz
#81 Xander Bogaerts
#117 Mike Napoli
#122 Anthony Ranaudo
#125 Rusney Castillo
#126 Bryce Brentz
#133 Edwin Escobar
#143 Matt Barnes
#BP34 Rafael Devers 
#BP57 Jantzen Witte 
#BP64 Jordan Betts 
#BP70 Carlos Asuaje 
#BP92 Henry Owens
#BP133 Trey Ball 
#BCP215 Simon Mercedes 
#BCP230 Manuel Margot

The first pack had way too many 'Hunters'.
