This time around I'm going to be smart... I will not open a single one of these. I will however, buy every one I find.

I’ll be buying and ripping. It’ll be a lot of fun. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

At $15 definitely a good buy and will be fun to open at that price. These will go up like every other 2018 release esp. with the hype from last year.
That said with no Othani to chase and minus what was only Acuna's 2nd card at this time last year I believe(w/ the FY logo) I can't see these being anything that special.
Feels a bit like 1990 Upper Deck or 1991 Leaf from where Im sitting.
Im sure I could get flamed for saying that on here- go ahead and shower me w/ derision for being a Mojo-ist.

I imagine some players from this release will blow up at some point. Might just have to wait a little longer to cash in if you buy and hold.

It's Bowman, there's a 95% chance that at some point these boxes will be worth more than $15.

again, the *only* place to get the chromes in this release, is in these boxes.

let that sink in.

i get it, "the logos are missing" "the checklist is weak" but still.

Honestly I hope you're right.

IMO unless the auto checklist is the exact same as 2018 Bowman and the 5 bowman packs included are regular retail and not just base. I just dont see the value. Either way Topps will make its cash.

yep, bunch of clueless members in this thread as usual. I will go to my local target on Monday/Tuesday and buy up all I can and flip on ebay. Maybe keep a box.

How easy are these to sell? I know ebay is an option but selling any sealed wax on ebay seems risky. Will Blowout buy boxes or just sealed cases?

Not risky
You only hear about the few examples of problems. Nobody posts positive results
99.9 % sell without issue

I completely agree. I swear people post horror stories sometimes to keep others from selling. I’ve never had a single issue.

I tried that and they taunted me every day until I ripped them open in a fury. Make sure they are out of site!

Absolutely no question these will be popular, very tough to find at $14.99 in the store, and the Mega Refractors look awesome. The more people that don’t care or don’t buy, the better for everyone else. Obviously different than last year, but you never know. Inherent value with Acuna, Ohtani, Vlad Jr and so many others who could easily become hot. I’ll buy every one I see, which was a lot last year. The Mega Refractors look incredible.
