Default Looks like this is it for Bowman Heritage

Don't forget tht MLBPA is cutting the number of releases next year so this may not be replaced with something similar...

This year's product looks very weak. No minis and the auto checklist is missing big name prospect autos. Based on the state of the hobby on not willing to bet on master sets to make a profit on this one.

I like the 2006 prospects and some of the on-card autos (Maybin, Upton, Gordon, etc) in 2006 but if they are dumping the line, will it diminish these more?

I actually like them because they are cheap. I have almost 100 Tabatas that I paid about a buck for. Someday IF he gets the call, I may get 3 bucks and that's a nice overall profit. I have some quantities of other prospects also.

Just wondering,
Vinny

i bought a bunch of hobby wax for about $33/box and stuck it away. with that rookie class and gordon/maybin/upton autos i think it's a no brainer investment.

With the way Topps has been sabotaging its set building products this year I have to say that I am out on this one. I love the premise and like these type of products but this year everything is a mystery going in. Topps has added something to every set this year making it hard to pre-sell or pre-plan for anything.

I ordered a couple of cases of 06 Heritage from blowout today. I don't know if I am best to sit on these or rip them...

Out of two cases, I have about a 26.5% chance of pulling an Upton autograph...
