Default Live 2-Box Break: '07 Bowman Sterling & '07 Bowman's Best Baseball

My shipment from BO just arrived and I'm about to start opening... thought it would be fun to do a live break. My last box of '07 Sterling from Blowout wasn't too strong, so I'm hoping this makes up for it.

Starting in a few minutes...

Good luck 07 Sterling was probably the 2nd best prospect product last year.

Very nice start! I also got the 'roid lineup of A-Rod, Manny, Bonds, Shef and Clemens in this mini-box (along with Ichiro, Griffey and Pujols).

Hank Conger PROS AU

Not as good as mini-box #1, but definitely not bad... the Pence is a nice hit.

2007 Bowman Sterling
Box Toppers

- A-Rod Road to 500 HR #s 458 and 465
- Joe Gaetti PROS Black Ref /25 (yuck... a 26-y/o who has yet to see the bigs... in 2-3 cases of this stuff, I have yet to hit any solid black ref or 1/1 in the topper... not even worth a scan)

2007 Bowman Sterling
Pack #1

Kurt Suzuki AU RC Ref /199
Adrian Cardenas AU JSY
Ryan Mount PROS AU
Cody Strait PROS
Micah Owings RC

Yuck... Making matters worse, all 5 of these are off-center. My last box of '07 Sterling was darn near 100% o/c... hoping this isn't the same.

2007 Bowman Sterling
Pack #2

Kurt Suzuki AU RC
Michael Main PROS AU
Justin Upton RC
Lance 'Big Puma' Berkman JSY
Vasili Spanos PROS Ref /199

This break has gone from good to bad in a hurry... each of the 5 packs/boxes of Best and Sterling has been progressively worse than the last. The good news? I don't think I can open a weaker pack of this product than this one! (if you can look back through Blowout breaks and find one, post a link here)

2007 Bowman Sterling
Pack #3

Matt Mangini PROS AU
Nick Schmidt PROS AU
David Murphy RC
Curt Schilling JSY
Brandon Hamilton PROS

Holy cow... I'm not sure if this pack was worse, but it's certainly no better. Half-way through the box and I may have $20 worth of cards in front of me. I'm not going to bother with the scan of this pack... just too depressing.

Now, I'm sure it can't get worse from here

Unlubricated... really. No scans until I get a card worth more than $5.

2007 Bowman Sterling
Pack #6


Before the results... this is the worst box of any premium product I have ever opened. Period. If anyone is following this break, I am sorry for wasting your time

Every other box I opened of this stuff had a minimum of 2 AU/JSY cards, meaning that there should have been one in the last pack (Longoria?), right?

Wendell Fairley AU PROS
Nate Schierholtz AU RC
Shelley Duncan RC
Brad Penny JSY
Jonathon Van Every PROS

Wow... kinda tough to lose $200 on a $250 box, but I'm pretty sure this clinched it!

I thought I caught all the refractors in the break, but I missed one. The freakin' Penny JSY in pack #6 was a refractor.

This product is loaded... I just can't believe I've busted two horrible boxes in a row. At least the other one (1 Box Break - 2007 Bowman Sterling) had a LaPorta.

Oh sorry man, that was God awful. Nary a big name in the box. Hell, not even an average one. Better luck next time, thanks for the live break!

TL Tim Lincecum AU RC $80.00
DPP David Price AU $80.00

Ouch..would you like a rope or lube? I figured with the first few bum packs, your box was going to have the WBC redemption. You most definatly got the worse box in the case...I hope!

I got the worst box in all the cases!

Since I have multiples of these donkeys, anyway, I decided to have a little fun and list the entire box on fleaBay - 2007 Bowman Sterling OPENED BOX ALL RC/AU/JSYs INCLUDED - eBay (item 310149494155 end time Jun-24-09 17:59:00 PDT).

Any guesses where this ends? I'll go with $35.

I'm torn- I dont know whether or not to say Sorry, or buy a box immediatley because it can't possibly be worse than that. Much better luck next time
