Exclamation 2012 Bowman Chrome News?

Topps just tweeted this:
"Bowman Chrome BB is coming soon!! 10/17! Hmmm what can we do make it even BETTER?? #Tease #NewsComing?"

https://twitter.com/toppscards/statu...04928069885952
I wonder what the news could be? Hopefully, it's a big addition to the checklist!

My source tells me there will be several press releases starting next week on their FB page.

One of which will likely be the identities of the Rookie Autos and the base Prospects.

Kinda like those series of announcements right before Bowman came out.

LOL Jaypers, I saw them respond to your tweet. It sounds like we MAY IN FACT be getting something by EOD today, perhaps?

Word is the Asian community already redeemed them all so better luck next time. Maybe this time they will limit those redeeming so that way when they recieve wrappers they wont over look the smaller packages and send 100+ to some and -0- to others...and say "oh well we ran out" when the wrappers from the -0- showed up first. Or make it that they cant be post marked before release...

max 5 packs per household so it shouldn't be that bad

Don't remind me of the Bowman wrapper program

I live one hour from Duryea and had my 3 jumbo cases worth of wrappers (paid $10 to ship) in a day before the tweet came out saying they were out and I still didn't get any. Probably could have got $1000 for the packs Sorry if I'm acting spoiled or entitled but I'm still kicking myself for not flipping the cases- could have made a good profit. The 3 cases ended up being the worst 3 cases I've ever opened of anything.

Just curious- where are you seeing that- how many packs do you need in order to get 5 redemption packs?

Easily abused. It will only limit those willing to play by the spirit of the rule, as usual.
