Default Case Break of Bowman Chrome on Beckett now...

If interested, you can check it out:

Looks like even though the additional five autographs exist, they didn't make the checklist. Weird.

So far that is a REALLY weak case. Hope he gets something better in the last few boxes to save the break.

A lot of Paul Estrada autos showing up in all these breaks I have seen. Let's hope he is not a group "A" auto 1:4 boxes.

Looks like they added both Lincecum and Pence to the base set which is good news for all of us trying to sell sets. Card #192 is Ryan Braun but I think that is the Royals guy.

You just taunted the ripping gods by using the forbidden word. And, if using it wasn't enough...you SUPERSIZED it!!

Fish:

There is a guy on the Royals with the same name who was an auto in Bowman. I think this is the guy in the set.

Man this guy is only pulling one non-refractor #d parallel per box. Last year you would get at least 2. Did Topps double up production on us this year?

IF I had case coming I would be tempted to sell sealed after seeing this so far.

on the plus side he just posted odds on refractor autos. print run is a bit smaller than expected - probably only around 5500 hobby cases + retail. would expect this to be $1200/case by christmas if not sooner.

I need some pain killers after fighting through that trash. Open the case and post your results in one thread. You're not that important!! Well, at least to me, you're not.

Seems like people are trying to "pad their number of posts" with all the stupid replies - "Good Luck", "get that Joba in box 11".

Why, oh why did I click the link??? Those kids drive me nuts!!

I agree after watching that break I am nervous about my 10 boxes I am going to break. What do you guys thing about the 6 box cases that will be out there? I have one of those waiting for me on Friday at 65 per box.

The guy is doing everyone a favor by posting scans, pack odd, etc. and the thread quickly turns into cat fight over stupid stuff.

I like the six-box cases. I have four of those to go along with two 12-box cases.

Here are the Bowman Chorme insert and auto odds. Not as bad as I thought it would be. From what I can tell, Topps gave better odds on Hobby this year which is good. Each case should yield about 81 #d inserts which is a little better than I projected.


Inserts
Ref. : 1:4
XFrac : 1:18
Blue : 1:30
Gold : 1:88
Orange : 1:176
Red : 1:882
Superfractor: 1:4218
Plates: 1:1054

Autos
Base Prospect Auto: 1:29
Ref. Prospect Auto: 1:89
XFrac Prospect Auto: 1:198
Blue Prospect Auto: 1:296
Gold Prospect Auto: 1:889
Orange Prospect Auto: 1:1780
Superfractor Prospect Auto: 1:39392
Plates Prospect Auto: 1:9668

WOW, that case BRUTALIZED that guy. I am so glad I sold mine so I'm not even tempted to break them. I slap a sticker on, collect my profit, and slowly turn and walk away from the wax. I think it's the first step in wax rippers anonymous, just walk away. LOL.

Anyway, after I watched that break I think I puked a little, right in my mouth. Hope you all do better if you're busting.

The case break on the other board, while the guy had horrible autos he did get way more than the one per box #d refractor that was advertised. This will be good news on the profit front.
