2. Are all the redemptions pretty much gone after day 1?
Last year Topps did 100 sets of these a day. You have to race right to BO and get your box and then over to Topps at the opening of the show. They go fast. I'm sure Puig and any other flavor of the week will be in it. I didn't get an auto, but one of my friends did. The set was just packed in a plastic box, so I would open it and secure the cards because the rattling around may dull your corners.

So do you think are going to have more cards than just the ones they've announced so far (Frank Thomas, Ernie Banks, Trout, and Harper)? Is there any reason you couldn't just grab a box the night before and then go directly to the Topps booth (like do they check your receipt or anything)? I'll be skipping Topps if it is just those 4 cards.

Looks like Bowman will give you a shot at a nice prospect auto in the 25 card sets they are giving away. I'm think that's probably the only one I am going to do at this point. Seems like it is a lot more time and work than it is reward.

The 4 players are for pack redemption. The set is for a box of Bowman Platinum. Yes, you could pick up one the night before or bring one (no receipt need-just the plastic wrap on the box). And if you miss out one day, you can hold the box and try the next day. I don't collect that stuff but just bought one there for the redemption and sent a lot of the box in to COMC. I doubt I will do that redemption this year.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I guess I'll play it by ear and see what people are landing.

If anyone comes across the auction catalog online for any of the auctions at National could you please post the link. I'd like to pick up a higher end piece or two while I'm there.

This is the way to go, I booked the cheapest room I could find, it comes with free parking(usually 16-20 a night), free hot breakfast(probably 5-10 a meal) and a free shuttle to and from the show( its 2 miles from center), I have stayed at the hotels connected to the convention center for other shows and it can get pricey, I like to go cheap and have more money for cards. As for the free stuff, unless you like to hear people complain and wait in long lines forget about it, to me its not worth it, actually that is a good time to look through stuff less people standing at a table.

Price on food at the convention center is crazy, but there is a McDonalds like to blocks away!!!

I booked 3 nights at a Days Inn about 5 miles away for about $160 total out the door if you don't mind the drive. I went right through their website.

some are the same, but BO runs a lot of specials at the show. I try to swing by their booth as often as possible.

I think last year BO would blast out some tweets / Facebook posts with quick sales specials that would be good for like an hour or something, so you had to check your phone while you were at the show. I might have dreamt that, so somebody else back me up if that was true.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

I believe you are correct...I don't have a smart phone so I just kept going by the table...there were constant specials that popped up. BO really did a great job at the show.
