Default 2015 Bowman prediction.

I am curious to hear people's opinion on 2015 Bowman. Do you plan on buying less or more than last year? Will it be less or more popular within the hobby.

My prediction is that the auto check list will have more than 100 names.

I usually have 10+ jumbo cases pre-ordered at this time but I ordered 0 this time around. I just didn't like the direction the Bowman products went in 2014 so I am going to wait and see what happens early in 2015.

The interesting thing here is that the checklist says "UP TO" 60 Names for prospect autos and "UP TO" 20 Rookie autos, but I do not think they had a limit.

Anyhow, I am doing none this year.

I might buy a box or two. The only Bowman line that can survive their drastic increase in auto checklist is Draft with all the unknown players. Everybody in Bowman with Carome will have had some minor league numbers, and there is just not enough young excellent prospects to support a checklist of 70+ names. The RC logo autos are a joke anyway. This product will be another blood bath similar to 2014 Chrome. A hardcore gamblers product only.

Singles for me. I expect prices to drop after release like 2014 draft so I can always pick some up then. No sense in pre ordering and contributing to the over production.

I'm usual in for one case by this time but the trend on bowman product has not been good lately. The prices usually drop within the first week of release anyways so I'll be waiting until then to get my case.

buying 0
however if buying to hold a few cases BOWMAN usually has solid resale value in case form and usually better than draft.

Buying 0 cases (most likely). Too many autos which produces a horrible return on investment. Singles is the way to go.

There was someone else that did that recently. Absolutely blew up saying a transactions here were terrible.

He also told me the week before that he couldn't buy anything bc his wife was yelling at him. :/

The pros for this years Bowman are going to be rookie autos for Soler, Baez, Castilo, Tomas, and maybe even Moncada before you even start with the prospect autos.

The biggest issue I see, is that Bowman prospect cards used to retain value, but the more they print, (and particularly of guys that have had numerous Bowman cards already), the riskier the break becomes.

Agree... I bought so much bowman and draft...

Value is just awful compared to years past...

Way to many auto subjects...

I usually pre order 10 cases... easily half that this year

No super jumbo that I've heard about. The weird thing that changed was you need to buy more jumbo than hobby if you are buying from distributors....

Not sure why anyone pre orders anymore, with the price drops that occur immediately after release it seems like a waste. I suppose a lot of the pre order guys are breaking and blasting ebay though...

So chrome and draft are pre-sold at high rates which is why they drop immediately. It is in season, the products are hot and dealers can get what they want.

Bowman is pre-sold SLIGHTLY above cost until spring training when you will see a bump in the price. Usually a pretty hefty bump, so if I can get Bowman (only product I am probably pre-ordering outside of base topps stuff now) at a price before that bump I will do it.

If for some reason this year is different than the past 2 then I will take my lumps and crack it all and see what happens.
