Platinum is usually not worth it, except maybe 2010

This stuff holds no value. Why buy this instead of getting Bowman chrome or draft?

Not a very good box, but nothing out of the ordinary.

There are some decent hits in this product but value doesn't hold as well as chrome/draft. Good luck finding Harper/Trout next box...

So should I just sell my unopened box, take whatever I can get and get something else?

You got the 2 autos and 1 auto/relic they promise per box. That's pretty normal I think.


The reason it's priced so high is that it has Harper, Trout, and Darvish and some of the relics have nasty patches.

I guess I was expecting more prospects. What I get for not researching better. I am new at this.

I am going to just list the box on ebay and take my lumps and try and put it to something better.

The only BP thats worth it is 2010. The others arent all that great. However, you can pull some really cool veteran autos out of them like the bruce you got. You didnt to too bad, just not great

In terms of sell value and how much he is making back he got crushed. 2012 Bowman Platinum seemed to kill almost everyone.

Well I paid whatever the black friday price was on blowout $200 for 2 boxes, and like I said, I hated the set , so I was going to list the sealed box on eBay and "take my lumps" to buy something else. Thinking $60-$70 DLVR.

Its at $91 DLVR, with three days left, so maybe I can get close to busting even. I just wasn't at all happy with the box. I mean, on my 5th base Josh Beckett and 4th Cliff Lee, I almost just flushed them all down the toilet.

I did get a Gold Pablo and Green Timmay though with incredible BV of $2 and $2.50 respectively, but I keep SF Giants for my own private stash, so none of choos come asking me for those two cards cha know?
