I doubt that would be the case.

Just you mentioning Blowout at your local hobby shop could have influenced several people to "check it out".
not enough to drive more people to this site than don't come to this site.

watch you auction like a hawk and cancel any bids from people with less than 50 feedback.

No, your right, the point I'm trying to make is that even if they never come to this site, their buddies that do, tell them that "2011 BOWMAN WILL BLOW UP, BUY IT NOW" and have a bigger influence on the popularity of the product than most realize. I would never say that the hype starts here or that the Blowout forums are solely responsible for the price to skyrocket. But I think online forums have way more influence than 1%, more like 50% in my opinion. LOL, we should get a gallup poll going!!! Then we'll know the true nature of the beast!

I only asked for a photo of the box it came out of as I'm not familiar with what you're calling a "Jumbo Retail" box?? I can only assume you mean a Gravity Feeder box?

So there are Bryce Harper autos in retail this year? There weren't Strasburg autos last year were there?

Otherwise, the odds look kind of crummy, especially considering that those are rack packs.

slacknasty - this is my last time trying to help you, even with the twitpic you posted the card appears to be auto'd IMHO even though I know its just a base card. You keep posting here about being worried of the buyer not paying and even added more info into the listing. Why not put in that it is nothing more than a base card and is NON-AUTO. I'm not accusing you of scamming/deceiving anyone, just simply trying to give you advice to avoid a non paying bidder/return

Do you think I missed the window for ordering a hobby box and not getting raped?

Well then eBay needs to remove the thousands of other Bowman cards that have facsimilie autos on them too I guess.

Holy cow, ebay is already flooded with base cards. Tons of 20 card lots popping up already. Most look like presales, but still...........

Thanks for sharing, I can't believe I read this entire thread.

The hype has just started, maybe I should sell my case? I will open it, but it is tempting.

its been done by collectors edge, they made several sets all base serial numbered, actually was a nice idea, though for some reason it didnt last.

If I had more than one case I would sell some so I could open one for free! I only have one lowly jumbo case though. I am sure I paid more than you did for yours too, I am in at $860. The funny thing is most people said that was to high for a case, and that it was going to come down in price upon release. I don't think that is going to happen at this point. I don't see jumbos ever going below $900.

it's hard to pass up $400 without doing a thing...... sell your jumbo and don't try to deal with the competion of selling singles... and all the undercutting BIN's.

gosteelers - congrats on the profit margain, thats sick man...i'm kicking myself for not buying in early and flipping them.

zacky1053 - im not saying that ebay should remove all facsimile autos, and I don't understand why your being so thick headed, I'm simply trying to help out slacknasty.... I guess you don't sell on ebay and understand how many morons are out there, odd's are someone is looking at the listing and thinking it is an auto because the auction doesn't state it's not an auto and just a base card, for the 3rd time now I'm not trying to be the police just trying to help out the seller. It would suck to see this thing go for $200, which it might at this point, because the buyer assumed it was an auto b/c of the pictures and that the listing didn't state otherwise and he ends up not paying or returning the card once he gets it. I don't understand why this is such a hard concept to for you to grasp

why this is good advice is because there will be thousands of "casual" collectors and fans that aren't "Bowman friendly" and probably will be confused about the facsimilie auto.........

Pretty sure some bidders already assumed this is an auto base on the scan. It's not like 10 BDPP where you can tell it's a fascimile auto. This one looks like real auto.
