Look at the previous page. All announced auto's will be there. I'm pretty sure JP cant tell us anything unless its announced first. If he could I'd expect a PM with Puig info =P

Speaking of Puig, he just hit a MONSTER shot off Straily.

Profar and Beras, the Rangers could be loaded in a few years.

You guys need to stop posting these updates on here. I can't contain my excitement anymore. I'm going to end up going bankrupt because of pre ordering cases. I already want to get a few more but I think I am just going to make it an even 20.

Absolutely right ... seems more people are busting Bowman than ever this year, singles will continue to be low.

twenty cases? WTF!
I'm getting one, mostly because I've never busted the seal on a case before and I want to do it once.

Why not 25? The product is shaping out to be awesome. How long do you think it will take you to open 20 cases and then sort all of it?

Already working on doubling my jumbo case count from 1 to 2. Don't think I can financially or feasibly do any more than that

Anything under 1K at this point is a really good price. Most places are around 1100 right now.

Jumbo price started higher than last year. If 2011 can be $250 a box with Profar and 2012 can be $220 a box with Tavares, I see no reason why this can't be $200 a box in no time flat. Giolito, Correa, Buxon, Hansen et al is a real good start.

I may just keep my wax sealed and wait a month.

If you have the money to actually sit on the cases then this is by far the smartest thing to do. I may sit on a case or two, but will have to crack and flip my remaining cases just to pay off some of the money invested.

I think another thing people forget is, these will contain the "Bowman Prospect Codes" which at this point isn't a bunch of added value but it is some. I also feel that once the actual game is live and the blue wave packs are live the codes will be worth even more.

lol. It would take a while. I only have 7 jumbo cases bought up right now. I think I will add 5 hobby cases onto that and make it an even 12. My friend has 3 jumbo cases bought so far and he should be getting another 5 or 6 cases ordered. We are going to be busting them together the weekend of the release. I was joking when I said 20 but 12 for myself is realistic. I will get to see atleast 20 busted total so we should have some pretty nice stuff to show off

I hear you dude, I can afford to wait, and I don't have the attention span to rip more than a few boxes. Still if this is $1400 a jumbo case at release, there is no point in waiting, I'll take my profit then.

Last year I loaded my cases up and went down to the Philly show and made profit free and clear of eBay and paypal.

But it brings up the point and question I had last year, if you have a $1400 jumbo case, aside from ebay, how do you sell it? The ebay fees now make it not cost effective plus the risks involved with an ebay purchase of a sealed case make me nervous.

I had an extra case last year and tried to bring it to an LCS. The guy offered me $900 and had a buyer for it. If it was me at the LCS, I would have offered $1100 and sold it for $1200 (market value).

Oh well, we'll see what I can do with my extra cases this year. Should be interesting...

I admire you guys for being able to sell sealed cases/boxes. I have to rip everything I get.

If you were married and you were using "shared" money, then you would have to sell cases too!
