This makes me a little nervous, they've already announced that they better names will be harder to get autos of, and their top two autographed prospects (Rendon and Cole) aren't going to be what is driving this product. There is some nice stuff, but its gonna be very hard to pull any of it. I'll buy a box or two this year, but I think I'm staying away from a case, because this set is neither good for sets, or good for hits, that means it could be a disaster again except for the few lucky people that pull the 1:~10 case amazing hits.

Good points Be interesting to see the checklist when it comes out and then see if they pull something like last year. I pulled a Harper auto but a friend of mine is still in pain from the kick in the junk he took on his case.

Harper better make the Nats sometime this year otherwise he'll have 4 years worth of "pre" rookies.

either A, Topps is doing their best to kill the value of almost every Harper Auto

or B, Harper being in EVERY set even when he doesnt have an official MLB atbat, means the value of his FIRST Bowman cards in 2010 will still be hot


IMO, just dumb, they should hold any new Harper auto's until later when he can finally have an official RC logo auto

Why don't they do on-card auto's for vets? It's really a bummer for a product using the word 'Platinum' in its title...

If they absoutely need to do stickers, limit this stuff to retail and leave it out of hobby.

The combo of subpar autos, and the admitting the couple of good guys will be SP or even SSP really kills the value IMO. might be good for a 50-60 dollar box, but not for what Platinum will probably sell for. Plus, resale value seems to be the worst of the Topps products, There was a time you could a Harper auto from there for 100. It's still only 150, while his chrome one goes in the mid 200s.

I'll just wait for Chrome later this year for my prospect fix.

Seeing 2010 and 2011 go well below cost, why would anyone buy this? After Topps hosed their buyers on the checklist in 2011 again why would anyone buy it? I got killed on it last year, never again.

I've bought a limited amount of this product the last 2 years and I was always underwhelmed. I mean, what is the point of this product? Aren't there enough Bowman releases every year? It's defianately not a high end product and it doesn't look like their heading in that direction. Get rid of it and put some effort into getting all on card autos in stuff like STERLING! It must sell, this will be their third year of production. I just wonder why people will keep on buying it.

I wonder if they're going to be padding the auto checklist with guys like John McDonald again.

Without a doubt. Look at all of Topps products, tier one, all of the $.99 autos in a $100 box. Just sad.

And the shortprint idea of base autos of prospects is NUTS. They did it in sterling, and sterling SUCKS because of it. You get ONE bubba/bauer/etc total per box. Just pathetic.

Now it looks like a mesh of Tri-Star and USA baseball cards compressed to make a "new: card.....pass.

what they did wrong from 2010 to 2011 is completely watered down the auto checklist and produced WAAAY more product making 2011 worthless compared to 2010. So you are right they sold out because dealers and distributers were expecting the product to be like 2010, now that they have a bad taste in their mouth from 2011 do you think they sell out as fast!? doubt it.

yeah, i knew all that i was just being sarcastic... it's obvious what they need to do, merge platinum and sterling into BOWMAN TITANIUM !~!~!~!~!~!~!

make both into ONE product per year, with all on-card auto's, and have each and every auto NUMBERED.

keep bowman baseball, bowman chrome and bowman draft, and number all the auto's as well. i don't mind base auto's but i/we would like to know print runs even on the base.

Where does it say this? I've read the article twice and I see nothing about that. I think you might be misinterpreting the statement about the most plentiful relics being #'d to 199, followed by the sentence about Harper and Trout. It's worded weird, but I don't think that's an implication of anything being short printed.
