I would be really mad if it does release that week. UPS does not deliver on Thur or Fri so my cases will be sitting in a UPS hub while those direct bust away and make a killing that weekend w/o any competition.

I can confirm this as well as my distributor asked me if I wanted any and I said no. It's going to be tough to make money on this unless you're one of the first on Ebay and/or you hit the big Aflac auto. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of work to break even.

Solt at $450 a case with the Live discount this is a no brainer. Cases are 12 this year vs. 10 so that comes out to $38 a box. Even with Razor getting the top picks there is still enough content to make money. You are going to average $30 on your autos with the low #d versions and AFLACs so the rest is profit. I agree at $650 per case it is not worth while but with Live you will make money and a decent shot at some really big hits.

11/28/08 2008 BOWMAN DRAFT PICKS & PROSPECTS BASEBALL

Chris just posted that the release date is moving to 11/28! UPS does not work for 4 straight days so anyone waiting for their shipments will get hammered as prices fall over the weekend.

Who's cracking a case of this? I'm dying to hear how frequent the 1st year autos come out of the boxes.

I'm holding off till the price drops then I'll pick up a case. I was lucky enough to get one of those "greenie" cases last year. By far one of the worst cases I've ever opened.

the 1st year autos are one per box. there are throw ins of aflac autos and rc autos as a bonus, with much smaller print runs on the inserts. the longo will be hard to pull=sell high. looks so far like a MUCH better product than 08 chrome. i have 3 cases incoming.

I think that is the only reason most people are buying Draft because of the price per box/case after the Live discount. and seeing what happens to the price after it's live for awhile-

Oh, why does Jesus Montero have a chrome base card yet also an auto card (redemptions) in the set? Was he added at the very last minute or something?

His base card is from the Futures game. Topps has frequently duplicated players within the product that are featured in different subsets.

Anybody that has cracked live BDP product care to post the pack odds for Parallels / Autos? We have established that there are only 18 Autos in the checklist and that AFLACS fall at about 4 in 3 cases (1:215 apparently), but what about the rest of the Autos and parallels? Thanks.
