2016 Bowman Baseball Trading Cards

One solitary pack of 2016 Bowman to share. There are 150 base cards in the set and 150 Prospects to collect. All 150 base cards and all 150 Prospects are available in a ridiculous number of parallels- Silver, Yellow, Purple, Blue, Green, Gold, Orange, Red, Metallic, although the last three are limited to a certain number. The 150 Chrome Prospects 'parallel' are available in parallel variations- Refractor, Green Shimmer Refractor, Orange Shimmer Refractor, Purple Refractor, Blue Refractor, Green Refractor, Gold Refractor, Orange Refractor, Red Refractor, SuperFractor, again the last three are limited.
The six different inserts: Scouts Top 100, Family Tree, International Ink, Rookie Recollections, Sophomore Standouts and Turn Two also come in many different parallel versions. At some point it becomes absurd.

There are only 7 Boston Red Sox cards to collect, but in so many multiple parallel mutations, there are close to 10,000 cards to collect. I may have exaggerated a little. 
The Red Sox available are:
#10 David Ortiz
#13 Mookie Betts
#15 Dustin Pedroia
#16 Xander Bogaerts
#92 David Price
#111 Craig Kimbrel
#129 Henry Owens RC

There are 10 cards in a pack.
The pack:
#30 Carlos Correa Astros
#64 Stephen Vogt Athletics
#102 Todd Frazier White Sox
#126 Hector Olivera Braves
#BP92 A.J.Reed Astros
#BP120 Justus Sheffield Indians
#BP140 Chris Bostick Nationals
#BCP17 Fernando Tatis Jr White Sox
#BCP116 Pierce Johnson Cubs
#II-JS Juan Soto Nationals

No colourful parallel, just your bog standard chromes.
