Bowman has been diving into more card sets featuring athletes outside of professional sports. One of those sets is 2023 Bowman Inception University, which is set to release on May 17. The set is usually specific to baseball, so this is a new product from Bowman. It features thicker cards and more colorful designs. The Inception University set will include both men’s and women’s college basketball players as well as NCAA football players.

The big names mentioned in this set include future No. 1 overall NBA Draft pick Victor Wembanyama, the first set to carry his autograph cards. The NBA Draft Lottery is on May 16 and we’ll see which NBA team will get the first pick and rights to take the French big man.

The other big name you’ll notice on the checklist is Iowa guard Caitlin Clark, who made waves in the media in the most recent NCAA women’s basketball tournament. She averaged nearly 28 points per game last season for the Hawkeyes and after losing to LSU in the National Championship, announced she’d enter the transfer portal. Clark is expected to enter the WNBA Draft pool after this upcoming season, likely going first overall in 2024.
