The class is solid IF they would put all of the big guys in it. Makes no sense to hold out the big names for future releases on purpose. There will always be that 3rd-10th round pick that turns into a great prospect to include in future releases. This is why I quit buying cases long ago....it's too hard to come out ahead unless you get extremely lucky. I bet 85% of the 2013 Bowman Chrome cases were opened at a loss if not more.

Will it be better than 2013 Bowman Chrome, yes. Good enough to make a profit busting..probably not. Singles only again for me.
Topps doesn't care about the resell market. They make their money months before the product is released.

I would guess more. Draft has a lot of potential depending on who gets put in. Those of you just looking at the top couple of picks need to do some research on some other people. There is some serious talent in this draft. Also, the top couple players have been left off in previous years too. It didn't hurt the products all that much. Finally, these will have the first product-included blue wave packs inserted. They should add some good value, and since they are not all being mailed out by Topps at the same time they will be rarer.

what does that have to do with bowman draft? there no comparison. money can be made on draft if you know how to break it down & sell it.

Bowman Chrome has prospects but it's entirely different than Draft as far as the prospects are concerned.

Remember when Mike Trout was considered a 2nd or 3rd tier auto in 2009 bowman draft....

Now I forget, and am too lazy to search. I know its draft picks and prospects in this, but the autos are just draft picks right? Or some prospects?

D.J. Peterson stuff should sell very well too, I know his Panini USA autos sold well and those were all stickered and ugly and what not.

I'm very curious about this product. I skipped Chrome bc people were killing it on here so I penciled myself in for draft... now people are saying F draft, wait for Bowman 14'. I did my first case of Bowman ever with 13' Bowman Jumbo and killed it. I really enjoy the big 3 from Bowman but is this Draft stuff really skipworthy in box/case form if there is no Gray/Bryant etc.? Does that mean Bowman 14' is a monster?

who is saying F draft? quite the opposite, people are just upset with the Bryant issue but most never thought he would be in draft to begin with. the only real concern revolves around production run and auto list. if it is similar to this past year draft and not overproduced or loaded with too many autos then gonna be another hit (especially with the addition of the blue wave packs in the product as opposed to a redemption program)!

1/2 the people that post on here dont have an idea what they are talking about so do what you feel is best. i'm in on draft & could care less who's dogging it. i remember all the trash talk about 2012 topps chrome fb, didnt stop me from buying 50 cases.

here are your presell safe plays every single year (of course depending on your locked in price)...

bowman jumbo baseball
bowman draft
topps chrome football
