How awesome is 2012 Finest going to be?

Other than a Lucky Auto #3(good luck), this will be the first opportunity to own an auto by Middlebrooks

Doesn't make a lick o' sense considering he's been up for over a month and Bauer doesn't arrive 'til tomorrow. Strange.

that's quite a blow to all the topps chrome speculators that have been posting lately.

It didn't NEED middlebrooks to be in Chrome, it would have been nice, but the inclusion of Davish, Harper, Bauer, Lawrie, etc. should be enough to make the product a success again.

Eh...not necessarily a big blow. Losing out on some extra gravy, sure. But with Harper, Darvish, Cespedes, Moore, Lawrie, Montero and now Bauer in there...I guess you can't get everyone you want

haha I've been a big fan of Topps Chrome this year, Its just too loaded to not be good this year I think. Harper alone would carry the product, but with Darvish, Bauer Cespedes (Has he been announced as having RC autos yet?) Lawrie, Montero it has to be pretty good.

I guess, but this news would seem to put Bowman Chrome over the top for me instead of Topps Chrome. You can still get Darvish, Harper, and Cesepdes there. Plus now you have RC autos of Middlebrooks and Bauer. You might lose out on Lawrie, but he could even be in BC for all we know. i could care less about yet another Montero and Moore auto. Plus whatever prospect autos they put in there ( Castellanos? Singleton? Schoop? Marisnick? Tyler? Odor?), and the fact that you get a extra 4 autos per hobby case, plus potential futures game patches and black autos. Bowman Chrome is looking pretty good right now.

Actually, you get two autos per box in Topps Chrome, so you are still getting more autos there, plus most likely a lot better chance at color autos.

I guess this year they are doing one prospect auto per box in Bowman Chrome, and I guess the "extra auto" every third box will be a rookie (Darvish, Cespedes, Harper, Bauer, Middlebrooks, plus a bunch of other rookies). If THATS the way they do it I'll be buying Bowman Chrome too, but I would want to know more about that before ordering.

Completely agree with AJ and John. Funny thing is, we're only focusing on the rookie autos. Refractor hot boxes and veteran auto inclusions will also make this a legit 2012 release.

Could be a rare instance of BC actually going up in price this year instead of falling, don't know if it's ever happened in previous years. I usually only do a case or 2 of Draft, but this years BC has me thinking twice. Especially with how weak the Draft class is this year.

Middlebrook Chromes will do bank on ebay now that he is full time, and especially if he gets ROY (I know slim to none being in the AL against Trout, but you never know) and Boston is in the playoffs by release time. Wonder if they will SP him like Lawrie last year.

Exactly- the hot boxes will be fun to chase and will push prices higher. It is still a great checklist- prospect and rookie- although I'm still baffled by Middlebrooks not being included. I knew Rizzo and Trout wouldn't be included but I thought Middlebrooks would be.

I might get some Finest now though. I only have Rizzo's Padre cards so far. And I wasn't going to touch TT or Bowman Chrome with a 10 ft pole but now I'm not sure. Maybe just Bowman Chrome.

If Bowman Draft (ppl are saying the class is weak but you never know and it seems like guys' Draft cards are becoming the most popular (see Trout)) really gets jumbo boxes I think its safe to say that Bowman Platinum will be the weakest product of the year by far.

There are "true" RC autos. They don't hold as much value as they did before obviously but just look at 2010 Topps Chrome- Strasburg, Castro, Stanton, etc. Those autos held quite a bit of value.

So what isn't in Five Star? I know the cards are the greastest, but how can this not be a big winner?

Because the product will ne almost 500 a box, and will have to hit either a cut or a very, very low numbered patch auto/booklet auto to come close to the value.

High end is almost always a loser if you're breaking it. If your talking about buying it and keeping it sealed to sell, then I have no idea.

Personally I am really starting to like Bowman Chrome, a lot. It is looking really strong, and the RC auto checklist while harder to pull is looking just as good as Topps Chrome, and they hold value better.

I can't wait to see the prospect auto checklist. Really hoping this kid has a auto in it. I will definitely go after the rainbow if he does.
