Looks good. Lets just hope that they execute it a lot better than 2010.

And good to see that they aren't doing USA in this again. Praying that they cut the use of the team USA stuff down to 1 or 2 products a year.

I see my guy in there in a hexagraph patch booklet, definitely looking forward to this already.

I agree with you on that they need to decrease the use of USA cards.

Topps is setting us all up to fail again. False hopes of product demand and shortages, tight allocations etc. Large distributors were tightly allocated,all of a sudden I get a call today saying for each 2 regular Topps 2 cases purchased I can buy 2 regular Bowman, same for jumbos. They will run the presses on this junk, and people will get in WAY too high.

I've been through 3 12box cases of this already and I cant say I broke even.

Funny I said that even though I pulled a Bryce Harper AUTO BLUE ref/99 and a tripple auto RED refractor /10 of Heyward / Stanton / Brown - Another Bryce Harper Auto ( non #'d ) 2 Harper Xfractors - 2 Base Harpers - Dual of Montgomery / Moustakas - Tripple of Ike Davis / Freddie Freeman. Green Harper ( NON AUTO ) /599

Now with all of that being said - The BLUE HARPER AUTO /99 sells for $400 on ebay! - If that was a blue ref out of bowman it would have sold for double - tripple. You would think pulling a harper auto /99 would pay for your case - But not with this product - Prices are dropping like a rock for indivual cards , cases , boxes , packs. . You can literally buy 5 harper autos for $1000 instead of buying a case. The only good thing to get out of this product is the harpers and maybe the duals and triples BUT, most of the duals and triples have different sticker autos on them! you'll have 1 -2 Foil stickers and 1-2 clear stickers. VERY POOR product this year. You thought they would have made it better than 2010 but no. Its MUCH MUCH worse. 95% of the relic autos are worth $2. I pulled a gold relic auto and i'd be lucky to get $20 for it even though its a relic auto and #'d /25. I seriously expect the 12box cases of these to drop down to $700 or lower considering the poor job topps has done. The only way I see this product staying above $900 a case is if they do some sort of wrapper redemption for it and I highly doubt they will.

I highly suggest staying away from this product because if you dont get as lucky as I did then you will end up spending $1000 for $150 worth of cards. I would advise everyone to buy 2011 bowman chrome or wait for TTT or simply buy 2010 products.


Heres some things topps could have done to make this product fly off the shelves:

1) Rookie autos
2) Wrapper Redemption
3) BETTER RELIC AUTOS - The relic autos in this product are wastes of cardboard
4) Maybe throw in a dozen HOFer autos #'d /10 or something
5) Dont use 2 different types of stickers on dual / triple autos - This is a disaster
6) Throw in some vet autos - Stuff like jeter etc. ( not saying to make a thousand of each , but #'d /99 or something
7) Cut the prices in half for all the distributors , because at these prices the cases just simply wont move and distributors / retailers cant make anything off them, let alone the regular joes buying them and wasting their hard earned money.

However, I do think the BASE prospects and BASE in general is highly undervalued. People on ebay are listing base sets for $0.99 and $9.99 shipping and they dont get 1 bid. The harper prospects should be selling higher than what they are now simply because in 12 boxes - on average your going to pull 2 harpers on average ( non auto'd of course )

Although I do like the overall design of Bowman Platinum ( the look of the cards , the large autos on the prospect cards ), Topps made a disgrace out of bowman platinum and I do not expect this to be produced in 2012 unless they make some MAJOR changes.

Thats my 2 cents

Great post and summary of this classic bait and switch by Topps. One of the worst downgrades of a checklist I've seen.
