Default Took it in the shorts..2012 Bowman Sterling

For $270, figured there would be more refractors and higher end rookies in the box. I only got two base refractors (Blackmon black and Jeffery Blue). Some nice patches, but definitely no top hits. Anyway here are the hits:






I told myself to buy singles and tried to stay away. Maybe this will be a lesson to myself. That Jarius Wright and Ryan Broyles looks exactly like the Finest Patch auto.

Topps should be ashamed for selling this product @ $270 a box ($300 at most places now). I'm sorry I don't mean to dog your break but, this is complete GARBAGE even from a pure book value perspective.

BRUTAL collating / value, and we still buy buy buy (me included). Ugh. Sorry again.

It is what it is. I can afford it, but what about the young man or woman with a family who who saved up to buy a box? Not every box needs an RG3, Luck, Wilson, Martin, Richardson, etc.., but this is crap. For the price I paid for this box, I could have bought 3 boxes of Strata or Chrome and would have come out better. Sigh...I am still the idiot that went ahead and bought this product. More disappointed in myself than anything.

Great looking cards, but you definitely eat it if you miss on the names, which is exactly what happened in my 2 boxes. That said, you hit a nice RGIII, Luck or Wilson and you're sitting pretty. Even the base RCs of those guys fetch $10-15. A decent auto will often cover the box.

You're sitting pretty if you buy only one box and hit one of those guys. Way too steep.

Tough break OP. Good luck with your next...hopefully not of this product!
