Default 2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball-Who's in?

Guys,


just wondering who's buying 2011 Bowman Platinum? I am thinking about pre-ordering already and wonder if the Harper-Mania craze will hold the product or the product will hold itself. I looked at the checklist (thanks, blowout) and I wasn't floored by it to be honest. Harper base, Harper Auto, Harper Double Auto and Harper Triple Auto, red, gold... are interesting but should I run to the nearest dealer and pre-order? are you out there, pre-ordering or pre-ordered? Thoughts about 2011 Bowman Platinum?????

I loved 2010 Platinum, so I'm in for 2011 Platinum, too. I guess I'll pre-order, just so I can have it on the release day.

Nobody knows that answer. Take a look at last year. Strasburg had everyone going cuckoo in the early part of the season. Pre-sells start to get locked in and boom... down goes Strasburg.

The price on this per box already jumped up big b/c of the hype Bowman had, it's at $119 now, and prior to Wednesday's release of Bowman it was at $87 a box if I remember correctly. I'm kicking myself right now for not ordering earlier.

I pre-ordered one six-box case, considering buying one more if the price goes lower....The auto checklist doesn't look that strong, but there are lots of patches...etc. so I'm in!!!

Not sure if this has been said or not, but last years Platinum guaranteed 1 auto patch per box, but this years guarantees 1 auto relic per box. I wonder if the patch cards will be tougher to pull this year??

I locked in a 12 box case early for $1000 and meant to order a few more from Blowout with my Bowman profits, but I guess I didn't consider the fact that Bowman might push these through the roof. Oh well. Retail was a decent buy last year and based on current prices, I'll take 6 blasters over a hobby box!

You're kidding me?? Just this past Monday I looked, and it was $87...ridiculous.

2 (12) box cases, a 6 box case, and 2 blaster cases. Luckily I got in just before the spike.

Ordered mine a two month early, a two case Hobby of 2011 Bowman Platinum, was afraid of price hike due to strasburg/harper auto and other good various auto in the product. I hope those who had ordered their 2011 bowman case online from ebay/online retailer and had it cancel/refund from the seller will learn from their lesson for this next batch of baseball Hype to order from a Legit Seller like BO or Dacard or someone who does deliver on their promise.

I am going to do a case too, but the jump is too much for me right now. I should have gone in when the case was 1000$
