Default 2009 Bowman Sterling Sell Sheets/Checklist

The design of the cards are nice, but that's about where it ends.

More sticker autos. More WBC garbage. And more repetition of prospects.

However, for you Reds' faithful, Chris Heisey finally has his first card.

Looks like a very busy base card design, but I think it is hard to tell from the promo sheet. I have a feeling that up close they might be ridiculously busy like the recently released Bowman football.
As far as the checklist went I guess I was not expecting much after seeing the Bowman draft one.

If anything, I'd rather get a junk WBC with a jersey swatch than a junk WBC base card. At least the Yu Darvish cards will do well...

Sterling won't have any of the good draft picks, either, huh?

Did Razor (whose site is down, BTW) get exclusives on the '09 picks? Did they not sign with Topps because they were expecting "Razor-sized" deals?

I'd expect Sterling to have a few last minute changes. Maybe they can sneak in a few draft picks that won't be in BDP, such as the Boras guys and Brett Jackson.

Razor, as I've been told, won't be doing exclusives this year. However, seeing as how they offered the Boras clients a LOT more than Topps did, I wouldn't be surprised if they appeared in their own prospect product and nowhere else.

Wow can Topps beat a dead horse anymore with this damn WBC crap. Glad to see they can put these one per pack but some of the top prospects aren't in here. There had better be a lot of changes or I'll pass on this one.

Well after looking at that sell sheet looks like 09 Sterling looks about as good as 09 BDPP, which isn't a good thing

I was told that the patches are done and at Tristar ready to ship, for what it's worth.

Again, Topps gets the GAS FACE!!!! No Brett Jackson, c'mon guys!!!

Six weeks is better that not being done yet, ala UD with the Brett Favre Letterman from '08 Icons.

The baseball design looks better, than the football product does. The FB design kinda reminds me....of some of that cheesey insert stuff from the 90's...that was a lot of BAM ! and WOW !......but, not much else. Kind of like...a lot of the Panini stuff Ive seen so far. I do like the design of the baseball, but agree....too many stickers....guess bowman sterling, will be relegated to a lower end product...until next year-when Topps saves the collecting world by being a corporate conglomerate that "is only after, getting kids and other people too..back into collecting" ( you know...like wal-mart is helping America)

Tuiassoppo or however you spell it is still a rookie 5 years later....I also LOVE how they kill any value to the autos by putting the same 10 people in every set. This is the first year I can remember not buying any bowman wax at all.

edit I just looked it up its actually been 6 years since Tuiassoppo had his first bowman card!! Looking forward to that green border rc in 2010 bowman!
