2022 Bowman Chrome University Football Variations Guide

Share This Post

The 2022 Bowman Chrome University Football Variations showcase ten of the game’s top prospects. Like SSPs in other Chrome products, they also happen to be Refractors, which offer one way to look for them.

The main thing about these variations is the photos. Each is different from the players’ standard base cards and parallels. While not the case for all, most of the SSPs show players at practice without their helmets.

Variations are tough, landing 1:684 2022 Bowman Chrome University hobby packs. That’s about 1:29 boxes.

Confirming Variations

Besides the photos, there are two signs that can help confirm whether you have one of the 2022 Bowman Chrome University Football SSPs. Both involve looking at the back of the card.

For base card Refractors, there’s a note highlighting their parallel status in the middle-top of the back. Variations are all Refractors, but they do not say so on the back. Missing the label and it’s a Refractor? You may have one of the set’s 10 SSPs.

Base Refractor – says “Refractor”
Variation – does not say “Refractor”

And then there’s the fine print at the bottom. The code that’s in bold changes to differentiate different card types. When it comes to variations, the only two code ending to know are:

  • Base/Refractors – 183
  • Variations – 204
