Prospectors - My Idea For a New ShopTopps.com Set
We've seen how well the Topps Mini's and Heritage High # boxed sets have done on the secondary market (there is currently a pre-sale for a sealed Heritage set on eBay that is currently over $200 - no joke).
Exclusivity sells, especially when it's Topps doing the pitching.
I would like to see Topps do likewise for a Bowman branded set. Or Bowman Chrome, preferably.
Recalling the Bowman Update and Topps Traded sets of old, I would propose a new and improved Update set, exclusively distributed through their site, with a fixed number of sets available.
Each would contain a minimum of 1 autograph or autographed parallel per set. Every few sets would contain more than 1 autograph.
Expounding on this idea, if this is to be a Bowman Chrome Update set, include parallel refractors (serialized to a low amount) of the base cards. One parallel every set, and perhaps "Hot Sets" which contain multiple parallels.
Going even further, this could include a redemption that guarantees the winner a COMPLETE refractor Update set. And a redemption for a complete autographed set. Perhaps even a 1/1 redemption for a complete autographed refractor set?
If these ideas were incorporated into this product, how much would you pay?
For me, I'd have no problem paying $99.99 per, assuming the quality of the prospect crop warranted it, of course. This type of product could sell out within hours.
Or, if we're merely talking about a standard Bowman Update set, provided the idea of autographed parallels were still on the table, I'd pay $49.99 or perhaps more.
There's a 5-month gap between the release of Bowman and Bowman Chrome, so releasing it during this timeframe would be what I would suggest.
Just thinking out loud.

excellent idea... i would LITERALLY buy these as opposed to hobby boxes.
the fact that we exist, in a universe of sheer randomness, is scientific proof that there are aliens.
we are the aliens.
i can say that with 100% accuracy.
