Default Christmas Break - 2012 Bowman Draft Jumbo Box....EXTREMELY Plain with one exception

My wife got me a box of 2012 Bowman Draft Jumbo for Christmas and it was the first time I have ever opened a jumbo box. I was expecting some nice color because everyone says how much better the jumbo boxes are....

Well, I guess that isn't always the case. In fact I didn't get 1 single colored refractor in the entire box (auto or regular). Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting red's and superfractors galore, but geez....

Here were my better cards:

Silver Ice Fernelys Sanchez
Silver Ice Kevin Gausman
Blue Paper Kevin Brady #051/500
Orange Paper Erick Gonzalez #209/250
Refractor Travis Jankowski
Refractor Bryan De La Rosa
Refractor D.J. Davis
Bowman's Best Refractor Michael Wacha #91/99




Refractor Autograph Ty Hensley
Base Autograph Kevin Plawecki




and the box saver (I would think)......

Dual Top 10 Picks Autograph Ryan Braun/Bubba Starling



If I hadn't hit that card I would have been a sad guy on Christmas morning...

A big thanks to my wife for the great surprise. No matter how the box turned out, it was a lot of fun!! Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

The bowman's best is better than most color ref's and I'm pretty sure Topps used that as a color replacement. You got one sick box with Hensley and the Dual!

Thanks guys....yeah, I'm definitely not complaining with the box. I was just surprised because I thought I would hit some color, but I will happily take the dual auto over some blue or gold of a random no name player.

Thanks! Merry Christmas to you too!

Does anyone have an idea for the value of the dual auto? I checked ebay and there are some that are listed at $350-$400, but haven't sold.

Nice dual. For 2012 Bdpp hobby seems to be better than jumbo especial for refractors and color.

Thanks. I had always heard the opposite, but it maybe was different for 2012 Draft. Either way, I am happy with my box!
