Mine's not listed: best image.

A lot of 1st Bowmans are untouchable for me because the images are so terrible. Look at the Joey Bart first Bowman, or Juan Soto's first Bowman card. I could never buy something that looked like that.

Especially not compared to say, Juan Soto's Heritage rookie. Give me 10 of those before I ever pay for the Bowman.

I mainly look for 1st Bowman Autos. Most of my buying is to flip for a profit and 1st Bowman seems to be what's most desired among collectors as a whole. I buy other products I find cool for the hobby side of it (Gypsy Queen, Allen & Ginter, Heritage, etc.), but BC is where the money is at.

I said RC because the question was "collect" not "invest".



Not at all sorry I bought this one, for example:



Now, with some of the parallel stocks that Topps has been using, there are some very interesting parallel RCs that appeal to me. I really liked the Walgreens yellow inserts and rainbow foil from 2019 Topps, for example. I also like some of the Heritage designs.

The Bowman Chrome thingies are the best potential investments, but I think they are uggos and I would rather have a nice looking MLB card with the RC shield on it for myself. I'll take whatever I can make money on too

I voted for the RC (First MLB Card) option but I do collect the players first Topps RC Gold Parallel version that are #'d to the current year (so, this year they are #'d to /2020). I could've also voted for Color/Refractor RC I guess. I used to be ale to pick them up for $10-$25 but now the "hot" players like Luis Robert are well over $100. Here's one from 2019 that I'll show since he just hit 2 HR in the WS:

Here's an example of a rookie card I wouldn't normally buy (Topps Now) but really liked the image on:

I wonder how many rookie cards Luis Robert is up to right now. It's got to be over 100 different if you include the parallels.
