I'll try to limit myself to 1-2 boxes... that is, if I even see them. I haven't come across any Bowman this year at my local Target. Should we expect Walmart will have these online also? That worked out well for me with flagship Bowman this year.

Good news - a Topps hobby sales manager who follows me on Twitter informed me the MSRP will remain at $14.99.

NICE!

at 5 + 2 it should remain at 14.99

Topps Update bumping to 7 chrome packs made sense to bump to $19.99

There was no one other than Ohtani that had a mega last year that wasnít also in the bowman Chrome prospect set. The other 99 has the same card number, a few had different photos.


The ROY set had some differences.

This stuff is going to be horrible. Last year was only big because of Ohtani and then the Judge/Bellinger hype and then continued to rise because of Acuna. The sticker autos provide low value and with the presses running deep on this one it will only water it down more. Good luck to those buying.

My Target has moved iits restrooms to an outside trailer. Supposedly temporarily but we'll see. It might be a candidate for worst franchise in the entire chain.

Will blowout be selling these eventually? They did last year...

I’d like to buy a sealed case if possible.

so it looks like the print run has increased but not by much. Basing this on the fact that this year they will have the same number of cards but parallels will include gold variations /50, which weren't included last year. last year's print run was 75k boxes, i believe(please correct me if i'm wrong). can someone do the math on this years print run or will we need to see the odds to make this determination? regardless, looking forward to this product, especially with the $14.99 price point. digging the image variations and really hoping Ohtani has an auto (but I doubt it).

This comment could not be any more wrong.

Looks like they did more on card this year as well, which is nice

Meh..Cool little release but anyone thinking this can be anywhere near like last year's isn't paying much attention to the perfect storm of circumstances that made last years Megas so sought after.
It is a nice opportunity for topps to sneak autos in of a few guys who haven't had any yet, that is somewhat intriguing.

So when they're sold on the secondary market by those who get them before the public can, there'll be a higher profit margin.

Great news.

Hopefully I can stay away from hunting these and maybe get lucky a time or two...too much running around trying to find regular Bowman to keep it up with this release.

Also hope J.B. Bukauskas has mojo refractors in it so I can at least go for those individually.

If this is true, not nearly the value as last years Mega's. That 1st logo is a big deal.
