Default Feeling depressed. Opened 1 box of 2011 Bowman Chrome. Feel a little better.

Not going to get into the depression part of things, but picked up a box of 2011 Bowman Chrome to pass some time and Mr Harper paid a visit.

You cannot tell us you are depressed and not tell us why.. Nice hit by the way. Nothing like walking into the card shop and walking out with a great card.

Thanks guys. I was happy when I pulled it but very happy when I checked completed auctions on Ebay.

Not really one to talk about the issues in my life on the forum. Just going through the things that life throws at us every once in a while and was hoping that opening a box would cheer me up a little and it did.

I did share with a couple of people here in the community and I appreciate their kind words and prayers.

Awesome hit! I pulled one from my first case ever back in March. I got it graded and came back a 10. Took me a little longer than I thought to sell it but finally sold for $650 on ebay. I got offered $800 a few times before and said no. Don't be too greedy like me lol

Thank you for the well wishes guys and gal.

It is nicely centered with sharp corners and very few marks on the card. The surface is definitely nicer than a lot of chrome I have seen. I would think it would pull a 9.5 and may take it to the National to be graded with a few other Harper items I have.
