I'm going to do something here that I've never done before. But, considering the overall hatred of Bowman, and my newfound love of it, I thought I could give you a box break summary. Now, this isn't your normal huge break, just two blasters and ten random hobby packs ( four of which only contained 8 cards...still waiting on topps for that).
First of all, I believe Bowman to be a fairly good deal. Since topps chrome only contains 4 cards, this basecally puts 8 bowman base at $1.50...considering prices I would say this is fairly good. Also, for TTM'er, I really enjoy the prospects, considering they will sign more willingly than a proclaimed star. This being said, I also like the scarcity of insert cards. It seemed half a pack of topps were insert cards of political figures and animals...I'm buying BASEBALL CARDS here topps, not GOP candidate cards....REALLY?!?!?! Also, I like the odds of pulling relics, and autos. Before bowman, I couldn't pulll a hit for anything, but now it seems like every time I buy some, I pull an auto. Okay, so here's to my pictureless cards:
Nothing to talk about except a Matt Lipka Auto.
Gold Yu Darvish RC
Chrome Bryce Harper prospect card
Brett Lawrie RC
10 Hobby Packs:
Tyler Anderson Orange parallel Auto # to 250
purple refractor # to 200
Jesus Montero international RC
Yu Darvish RC
Gerrit Cole prospect card
blue parallel card # to 500
So all in all, pretty good I would say...LMK about your breaks.
