Before the 2013 Topps barage...INSANE Box of 2012 Bowman Jumbos
 
So I have to give credit where credit is due, after True NE broke a box of 2012 Bowman Jumbo yesterday in Boston I inquired which LCS had it. Stopped by the shop today and he had one box left so I scooped it up. The regular parallel hits were pretty decent:

Harper Chrome and Base
Cespedes Gold Base Parallel
Trout Gold Base Parallel
Gerrit Cole Silver Ice
Jackie Bradley Blue Border /500

Then there was a hint of gold...since it was in the auto spot praying for something decent....Greg Bird Gold Refractor (non-auto) /50 (oh well it was a gold at least)

Then I hit my first auto...Greg Bird base (my 6th) and figured based on my other Bird boxes I was in for a beating...then this guy showed up

Bammmm, card is absolutely pristine (marks and edges are from scanner) and will be heading to BGS unless a serious offer comes in

Also picked up one box of OPC Hockey for those of you that care and hit this

1:4000 packs - Washington Capitals 9-11 Commemorative Team Logo Patch TL-95 SSP which is a really really tough pull

All in all, a great day at the LCS and huge shoutout to True NE who will get a finders fee for all this

[B][COLOR="Red"]YOU OWE ME ONE FOR THIS....THAT WAS GONNA BE MY NEXT BOX!!! [/COLOR][/B] :D

Just kidding - amazing rip on the JUMBO!

I'm telling you guys that when you get mixed up in a good case of 2012 Bowman Jumbo's you should buy all of the boxes. They are streaky like that.

TrueNE_09 01-29-2013 06:12 PM

Funny you say that, because his Bowman products have been treating me really well lately, including both Bowman regular & Draft.

But, unfortunately, I believe the one that the OP ripped was his last. He is a small shop and only sources a few boxes at one time....the rest of that case if off, somewhere, one can only guess where.... oh well.

I think your best hit is the 9-11 patch. Sick hits!

That sucks, '12 Bowman was some awesome stuff to break in my opinion. The value from most cases was solid but every once in awhile you would see some insane ones.

Doubt it will sell higher than the Bogaerts, especially if it grades well, but if selling raw it might be close! Let's hope someone is trying to complete that patch set a la the Animal Kingdoms

What's the Xander go for realistically?

Coug46n2 01-29-2013 10:01 PM

Great break Adam, happy for you bud!

Adamchuk 01-29-2013 10:09 PM

[QUOTE=BigDan502;4139368]What's the Xander go for realistically?[/QUOTE]

Realistically, raw probably $350-$400, graded 9.5 $500- $550ish

[QUOTE=Coug46n2;4139527]Great break Adam, happy for you bud![/QUOTE]

Thanks Ian, finally broke my wax dry spell (hopefully it doesn't lead to more busting)

BBCollector99 01-29-2013 10:10 PM

Great pulls! Congrats
