None for me. I don't think it will be all that great this year. I am all in and waiting for draft though. Fun times ahead!

Just getting one case this year to get it on the Blue Wave Wrapper Redemption, and to see if I can pull something big.

Just a box...can't afford to be a case breaker, but I like to pick up a box of each Bowman (base, Chrome, Draft) each year.

I will be opening ZERO, not even a box for kicks. This will be as bad as 2008 in the long run.

That is what I am thinking. Not trying to put anyone down when I say this, but some there are some chrome-atics that would buy no matter how bad it appears to be. There is nothing wrong with that, you just have to be prepared to lose some money. I hope I am wrong and everyone ends up doing great with it.

I have to bust some wax and yes I admit, I'm a chrome-atic. Can't help myself, love the chase. Not trying to make money, just sell off the stuff I don't want to keep.

I bought a case, case was completely funded on card sales. Hoping to hit a few PC autos, some nice color and a hit to sell and recoup some paypal funds.

I like the insert ideas as well!

Based on the checklist? I actually think the checklist is quite strong.

Busting quite a bit.

If there is an inclusion of rookie autos for this product, it could quickly be a huge hit. The Blue Wave Redemption should be helpful.

A couple blasters possibly then by singles for PC & tradebait. Don't bust any cases as I'm completely happy with my real job in life lol.

I'll be busting 5 cases. Ripping-and-flipping everything. Trying to have everything listed and sold within the first week.

1 case, I wanted to do 2 but with the low level prospects (Guys I like, but not big $$ names) I thought buying singles would probably be easier and cheaper than double dipping on cases.

Below is a checklist, none of these players has all that high of a ceiling IMHO, but it would be interesting if people want to comment on who the grade "A" prospects are. Granted, there could be some Jose Bautista type players who figure out some fatal flaw, but this seems to be a list "B" prospects at best.

Adam Conley
Andrew Chafin
Avisail Garcia
Billy Hamilton - Reds
Bobby Crocker
Boss Moanaroa
Brad Miller
Chase Davidson
Christian Villanueva
Cody Buckel
Felipe Rivero
Felix Sterling
Frazier Hall
J.R. Graham
Jake Marisnick - Blue Jays
James Paxton
John Hellweg - Angles
Jonathan (Jon) Griffin - Diamondbacks
Jonathan Singleton - Astros
Jorge Soler
Jose Campos Josh Rutledge - Rockies
Kevan Smith
Marcell Ozuna
Matt Szczur - Cubs
Miles Head - A's
Nick Castellanos - Tigers
Nomar Mazara
Pratt Maynard - Dodgers

Ronald Guzman
Rougned Odor
Scooter Gennett
Sean Nolin

It's amazing to read how many people are solely in this for the money aspect of prospecting. I am not judging by any means as I do it myself, I just find it interesting that no one rips, just to rip?

I personally think the checklist is fairly deep across the board, with a couple guys that I think will sell pretty well.
