Default 1999 Bowman's Best - 2 boxes

Let me first say that I stopped collecting in the very early 90s and never realized what I had missed until I saw a thread in the baseball forum. The inserts members posted in that thread were amazing and inspired me to get bust a couple late 90s boxes. I couldn't find all the boxes i wanted but I read in post about 99 BB and thought i would give it a try. I was not disappointed, in fact this break was quite possibly the most exciting I ever had, It was an absolute blast. Without further ado here are the hits...

Refractors
Mike Piazza /400 - As a Mets fan I was really wanting this one.
Bernie Williams /400
Jeromy Burnitz /400

Mirror Image
Chipper Jones/Eric Chavez - Atomic Refractor, not numbered but pretty rare. Beautiful card.
Frank Thomas/Nick Johnson - Refractor
Frank Thomas/Nick Johnson
Greg Maddox/Bruce Chen

Future Foundations - Cool looking die-cuts
Derrick Gibson - Mach II /1000
Eric Chavez /3000
Troy Glaus /3000

Rookie of the Year
Kerry Wood

Franchise Favorites
Don Mattingly












Thanks for looking, for the price I ma y just pick up a few more boxes.

I love 99 BB, it is an overrated product. Very cool product with an amazing rookie class. You did well, hopefully next time you can hit an atomic refractor /100 from the base set.

Back in 1999 I pulled the Matt Holliday Atomic RC /100 from a pack at the local drug store. It was stolen in college. Would love to have that one back!

I LOVE breaking 90's boxes. I started putting together a 90's Griffey insert collection recently and I'm completely hooked.

lol, yeah, I think I only have 3 years in my spreadsheet so far...1996, 1998, & part of 1999 and I'm already at well over 250 cards on my "want list". I have about 60 on the list right now and I'm already starting to question my commitment. I might just end up moving all the inserts I've picked up thus far and choose something smaller to focus on for awhile.
