Default Showing off my COMPLETED 2012 Bowman Draft Orange Refractor Auto Set

40 for 40. What a long, strange trip it's been... Thanks to everyone who reached out and made sh@t happen! I'm glad it's done and over, and I will not be attempting this with this years draft product (blue definitely, possibly even gold). Enjoy!

Thanks man. My boys better appreciate the time, effort, and capital I put into this thing when they're old enough to take ownership of this.

very sick! Id grade them all 9.5 or just take the 1 9.5 you have out. It looks a lot cooler when they're all the same. Very Very nice overall! just my 2 cents

I've cracked all of the 9.5/10s (it pained me to do it; but it has to be aesthetically pleasing). Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to do as a display.

Thanks Brett. I had to give Mike a substantial lot of nice autos (I got a nice lot of Shaffer in return though), along with naming rights for my next unborn child.

That is awesome! Did you keep track of what the whole set cost to put together?

I hit a few in breaks; but honestly no. I can tell you I bought in on 75% of the guys at the right time (Sims, Taylor, Heaney, etc...). Some guys hurt the pocket more than others (Russell, Gallo, Almora, and Zunino close to $2k easily).

Well glad he finally came around for you so you could complete it. Also hope he shows some mercy with the naming rights...

We both agreed Chalupa Batman was unacceptable.
