The Bowman Mega Box is coming back to local Target stores.

After last year’s exciting debut, the box is back featuring exclusive chrome refractor designs not found anywhere else. Each box will have five packs of 2018 Bowman Baseball cards and two packs of 2018 Bowman Mega Box exclusive chrome cards, which contains five cards in each pack.

2018 Bowman Mega Box will be in Target stores starting May 23.

The 2018 Bowman Mega Box exclusive cards will highlight 100 chrome prospects with five different color refractor parallels of Purple (numbered to 250), Green (numbered to 99), Gold (numbered to 50), Orange (numbered to 25), and Platinum (1-of-1).

Bowman continues to be The Place to Find the Game’s Future Stars with the Mega Box featuring rookies and prospects such as Shohei Ohtani, Ronald Acuña, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and more.

Insert cards in the Mega Box exclusive refractor parallel include ROY Favorites and #BowmanTrending. In addition, 10 prospects will get image special image variations.

Collectors will have a chance to find autographed cards of prospects and on the ROY Favorites design.

Head out to your local Target stores to find a box of 2018 Bowman Mega Box and share your cards with us on our social media channels: Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Let's see how long they let the presses run on these. Not that it will stop folks from going crazy for them.

Pretty cool looking Acuna auto. Wish it wasn't a sticker, though.

Image variations are cool.

They will definitely run the presses on these this year!

At least Topps gave us the heads up this year! Only the Acuna appears to be a sticker auto. Interesting that the ROY Ohtani card was made especially for this box.

How much over cost are these going to sell for on ebay?

im assuming, like last year, that the 5 Bowman packs will be just base paper and base chrome, with no shot at parallels

Doesn't look like Ohtani has autos. Thinking these might not be so good actually.

I wish we had a target in Canada

Or that they would even ship here when they put them online. But nope and nope

You may recall Michel Baez (Padres) posted pics of Mega refs on his Instagram before he signed them, among other names. None made it into Bowman, so I think they'll be in here.

Ohtani could have a ROY favorite insert auto.

I know it's not a surprise, but it's a bummer Alzolay's Chrome Black Auto 1/1 has faded ink (see pic).

Damn it... thought I was done spending money on Bowman. Last years were too fun to pass on for this year.

Yeah, I really like the picture they chose. I'll definitely be looking out for that card. I can live with a sticker as long as the ink doesn't stray off of the sticker. I hope there are non-auto's with this picture also.

I don't care if they crank the presses for this release. Last year was fun and I am looking forward to opening some of this year's product.

I am glad that my local Target sucks so bad with stocking sportscards that I will never be tempted to waste money on these.

The Ohtani is what made these last year. Slim chance there's a base card that fetches $80 out of the gate. I'm sure they'll be fun to open, but I wouldn't get too hyped over them.

Looks like they took all the "1st" logos off these cards.

I know of a couple of names who could fit the bill.

You're probably correct but we saw a decent amount of guys in last years Megas who were not in the regular Bowman release. Perhaps another look into the future of what Bowman Chrome might have in store
