So with 2011 BDPP, you had a product with a strong checklist at the top at the time of release and, despite a much smaller auto checklist, more quality top to bottom both then and now. It really isn't a close call which was a better product between 2011 BDPP and 2013 Bowman IMO.
Lets just agree that they are both great. I think this is a great argument to have. At least we aren't complaining about it being one of the worst releases ever. Keep it up Topps! I did great with Heritage, and now this one is looking great. Hopefully a sign of whats ahead in 2013.
