Agreed, but the designs from the last 3 years had OCs that stood out too. I really like the extra white that is on this design. Will really make those color refractors pop!!

I am with you.

I'd love to see a return to a design similar to 2001, 2005, or 2006. All three were iconic.

I'm not a big fan of jersey/relic cards but they have a clean look to them. Should look pretty nice in person.

Is the checklist better than bowman inception?
for $90 a box(inception) for 5 autos seems like a "solid " buy

Short answer? Yes.

Long answer? .....Yes.

Bowman Inception will have almost no resale value after the first day or two. It doesn't matter how many autos you are getting if they aren't worth anything. Not to mention you get no base/inserts/chance at anything worth a lot.

Why do they have player sketches instead of actual player pics, I would prefer pictures over sketches on those future cards!

so you're expecting this release to be a "flop"
case prices dropping after release under $600?

I think 600 might be the absolute floor, yes, but more realistically I see case prices settling in around 625-640. I definitely don't see case prices going up much over the inital pricing once the hype dies down. This product has way too many things that Topps could get wrong for a first year product: SPing the big names, chipping on the cards, a bunch of redemptions, etc, and I don't see resale being that strong, considering all the Bowman Products that already exist.

I feel like there is already 3 big products that people get their prospect holds from: Bowman, Bowman Draft and Bowman Chrome. If it's not those, prospectors won't be interested, similar to Bowman Sterling, which is always seen as a second tier card. I will say it has a chance at staying around its current price if people view it as Topps Inception Football, but I think 80 a box is a more fair price for this product.

It has a chance if they get the chipping fixed and don't SP the bigger names, but I'm leaning towards it not being better than it's current case price, and DEFINITELY not better than 2013 Bowman.

Man you're right, will be almost as bad as those Cut to the Chase Die Cuts! I still remember, ruined 14 penny sleeves trying to get those in.

The 2012 Golden Giveaway Die Cuts come in a close 2nd though.
