Default How much Bowman Draft or Elite Extra are you opening?

Just curious to know from the board here who is opening which and how much... I am torn..


not sure if I should go with 2 Bowman Draft or 1 Elite case and with the Holiday shipping schedule making it that much more difficult to decide because I wouldnt receive Bowman till early next week


It looks like Donruss stepped up even from last years Elite product and put more top hits in it.. and even though Bowman Draft has the name....it is missing the players that will make it sell even though the price point couldnt be much lower with the Micrsoft discount

I think Elite has a lot of junk autos if you look at what a lot of these guys from Donruss Threads are selling for on Ebay.

Draft is not perfect this year, but with the Live discount, AFLACs and reduction of autos down to 25 hopefully solid names this is a now brainer at the current price point. Doing 10+ cases depending on when I can get them.

I've got 1 case of Draft and a 20 box case of EEE coming. Looking at one more Draft with the Live Discount. Haven't decided yet. Rob

I have one case of Bowman draft coming. I had to go for it with the 25% discount from live. I'm dissapointed though about the release date. Which means I'll probably won't get until Monday. Good luck on what ever you choose.

As much as I love Draft, I'm not buying it this year. Maybe a box, at the most two boxes.

If thats the checlist I may just drop a case worth of money on Posey and Beckham autos and Porcello parallels-


I know they lost alot of names to Razor and Donruss but that's a joke- and probably 1- 3 will be redemptions

Nothing is certain until the product is live. Don't assume.

I meant both. Wait until the product goes live - Topps is infamous for last minute changes.

0 of each. nowadays, cracking cases for a profit is an futile act.


also, that auto checklist is suspect. you mean to tell me Topps reduced the number of autos from 40 or so to 18? ill wait til the product goes live but ill only be buying singles

What about Tristar Prospects Plus? Is anybody interested in that? I had good success with ripping and flipping Tristar in the summer when it came out this year. It seems they have good auto's of this year's draft picks in that.

I'll be purchasing a case of bowman draft with the live discount and probably a couple of boxes of Donruss EEE from the LCS.

I'll probably pick up a couple boxes of EEE from BO early this week. That stuff was killer last year.

Saw a couple of Elite singles on Ebay this morning- I like- them but they seem to be numbered even higher this year so I think I'll wait to pick some up because the prices should drop enough wehere everyone can get a copy just have top watch for parallels

All five autos/memorabilia cards from the box that I previewed were serial #d to less than 819 copies. I pulled a Rick Porcello throwback threads jersey #d/500. The two rookie autos weren't serial #d much higher than last years (Daniel Cortes #d/680 and Kyle Ginley #d/819). My other two autos: Charlie Blackmon School Colors #d/50 and Chris Valaika Aspirations #d/100. Not the greatest players but pretty low in serial numbering. I imagine the majority of boxes feature at least one auto #d equal or less than 100 and none above 1000.

I've only purchases 3 boxes of BDP so far. I managed to get both Beckham and Posey base autos, so I might flip those on eBay and get a couple more boxes. I think I'm only going to buy singles of Elite EE on eBay.
