Am I reading the sell sheet right, there is 1 chrome prospect card per pack. In the past there have been 2 correct?

Yes, but they mean that the other Chrome will be a "rookie card". You still get 2 Bowman Chromes per pack.

In any case, that announcement is not set in stone by any means - many packs will contain 2 prospects and others will contain 2 "rookies".

it's more likely that the number of autos per player will increase than teh production run being cut.

hope not. if the insertion rate on the aflacs changes, that will be a good indicator of production level cut-backs. it has been rumored that 2008 BC did not sell out at the icreased level, so hopefully that will help in the decision, but at this point wonder if print has been run.

topps lost a lot of money because they got greedy overprinting 08 BC and it didn't come close to selling out. i certainly hoped they learned their lesson.

well yeah, because it was severely watered down. that's the point. drop 20 nobody autos and cut the production in half and it's probably still above cost right now.

In SCN Chiris said that Bowman Draft will be printed based on distributor pre sells unlike Bowman Chrome. In todays market that will mean a lower print run than 07 Draft. I think this means Aflacs will fall 2 in 3 cases and #d inserts willl have nice odds.

After carefully rereading the sell sheet it says that you get one Chrome Auto a box, does that mean that if I pull the Collin Balester Chrome Auto that is my auto for the box--- or Blake Dewitt------ or one of those parallel versions?

How will a 3rd year Longoria Auto sell?--- considering he is signing in all Topps and some UD products, same with Kershaw and do we need another Chris Volstad auto- His 2005 Auto is still pretty cheap

Probably does mean that. However, that will mean the draft picks' autos will likely be worth a bit more, thanks to the added feature of these 2nd/3rd year autos.

yea they are bonuses. box could contain up to 3 autos if you think about it. with the aflac, rc auto, and the prospect auto. but i think rc autos are 1 per 8 boxes.

correct. there is a prospect auto in each box, and the aflacs and rookie autos are filtered in as a bonus. that is for hobby, i am not sure on retail.

The patch autos went for next to nothing so if they include them or not it won't make a big difference. I heard Topps is pushing up the release date to 11/28.
