To the guys who responded top me above, trust me a lot of people on here are not happy with the product since they are pushing back the big rookies and I understand why. If I take 13' Bowman Jumbo which I got at an avg. price like BO price not special price like i can often get, take away Buxton and Correa and my case was a lot worse! So it's a big deal to not have some of the top guys. That being said, in the long run, some guys will emerge and become those guys.

I might F with some Jumbo Draft but I'm leaning towards holding off on a case til 14' Bowman.

they push back a few of the top names each year to build the following year's bowman around, not a concern to me at all, that being said everyone cancel those presale orders so they lower the production numbers and don't crank the presses damn it!!

he may find himself as one of the 45 rookies in the product, but the other post was referring to RC Autos which he would not be

Most of us knew that Bryant was going to be held back for 14 from when the spread sheet was announced. The only reason people were not happy with the product is due to Kris Bryant showing off his super on Twitter. A lot of members here were surprised to see Bryant in there, but when it was announced he wasn't, that is when people were getting ticked off. It will still be one of the top breaks of the year.

The chase cards are still numbered and regardless how much extra is made the cards numbered to 150,50,25,etc... Are still numbered to that.

won't argue this point even though I disagree some, however remember that that is not going to be the numbering in draft Blues are out of 99, then they added green # to 75 and black # to 35

Joey Gallo 0.1. You wanna talk holes in your swing ... watch this kid face a pitcher with a good slider. (Imagine Soriano vs. Jeff Nelson). I once saw him swing and miss by a good two feet.

Raw tools; but Reds stretched on this one.

Yea, so I transferred my multiple cases that I had pre-ordered into a few boxes. I'm done pre-ordering. If It will help production numbers and stop Topps from holding out till the last minute to give us a checklist that sticks it to us. I'd prefer to help even if it is at just a fraction.

I am very close to this decision, too. Ship has sailed for me on this product but the bait-and-switch routine and also the mess with TC/BC releases has me very wary for 2014.

So 1st rounders and 2nd rounders are 50/50 so far. How dilute will the checklist be?

If it is anything like the past couple of years, total of 40ish autos, with 20-24 being first rounders and the rest 2nds - maybe a third or two sprinkled in there. With Bryant a certainty in 2014 Bowman, I would think that either Meadows or Appel is a lock for 2013 Draft, with the other joining Bryant in 2014. If Topps does it right, Meadows will go into 2013 Draft to headline it along with Frazier...

I have a lot of this product pre-ordered and I'm still excited about it. I was hoping Bryant would be in it and I'm still not convinced that he's not (why would Topps make that card for no reason?), but even without him this is still going to be a product with a lot of very solid autos with a ton of future potential.

The way I see it, 2013 Bowman has Buxton and Correa driving it, and Hobby are $800, Jumbo are $1100+. Draft may not have Buxton, but it'll have a much better overall auto checklist with either all or mostly 1st and 2nd rounders.

I guess we'll see when the checklist is finalized, but you'd think BDP will at least match the prices of '13 Bowman if it's auto checklist is stronger.
