Default 2007 Leaf R&S a SLEEPER ????

Just got home from my suppliers (made a mercy buyof 1 HTA Bowman) and while I was there he was o nthe phone with his master distributor. SUPPOSEDLYthey are going to load up R&S this year to make it a better product. They guy on the phone said it would be more like Gridiron Gear FB and shorter printed. Personally, I usually treat that product like a hot girl with sores on her mouth....o.k. to look at but let someone else have her.
Anyone else hear anything about this new and improved R&S ? I pre-booked only 4 boxes (which is 4 more than I opened in years)because while I was told that they guy wouldn't hype something just for a sale I don't trust anyone.

I never said the 55 chomes in Bowman would be loaded. I said Bowman FB would be garbage.

Haven't looked at Bowman FB. Did look at Bowman Chrome FB and based off what I see unless you get extremely lucky you don't stand a chance of making money busting 1 case.

My Guess on print runs for 2007 Bowman Chrome Autos based off 2007 Topps Chrome tiering and odds as stated in Beckett.

Haven't heard about "New & Improved" but looking at our Gridiron Break and seeing essentially the same breakdown of autos/game used/parallels and inserts. I'm leaning toward R&S. Plus the fact that my wife has always liked Leaf Products and has always had good pulls.

Tony you beat me to it. That is the info on the sell sheet anyway. That's the way it was last year and I hope it is the same for this year. I have 4 cases coming and hope to get a couple of the SP autos if not one per case. I did see a Calvin Johnson Var. auto out of Bowman listed and it was #d out of 25 so they are definitely tiered in the way Mike suggested Chrome might be.

They'llprobably be the ones I had at 185 print run plus some of the 875. It'll only increase the number of players with high print runs.
