What is your definition of selling very well? They will be selling for at least 10 per

A card found only in THIS SET can be said for all cards.

I'm happy with the OG Otani's in last year's Mega's!

I'm curious to see the odds on the variations and the variation autos. Acuna Variation auto would be pretty sweet, especially if it's on-card.

At $14.99 and 5% Red Card discount wiping out the taxes these are a win in my opinion. Couple of good prospect autos in Kieboom and Florial, a shot at Acuna variation and then possibly a Devers, Robles, Andujar or Albies ROY favorite auto. Those are decent payoffs.
IMHO

The checklist is very weak in my opinion. Plus Vlad and Acuna are 2nd year cards so won't be as in demand.

I will still be buying them, but I predict it will be similar to Topps Chrome Mega where we saw boxes being a lot easier to get and boxes will max out at resale at $25-$30 most

Topps missed a huge opportunity on these in my opinion

No one is a bigger fan of Mega then me and not many people opened more boxes than me last year but this does look weak. So weak it might take some of the hype away and drop prices on the 2017 product.

Nice job Topps!

I guess it would be hard to top 2017 lineup so maybe I'm being a little harsh.

Couldn't disagree more - the 2018 is very weak but all that's going to do is make people realize how loaded the 2017 one is and increase its collectibility and popularity

How anyone can say this year is “weak” is crazy to me...they’re not even out yet! Even if the checklist is a downgrade from last year these are an easy buy for me.

I'm probably going to skip the boxes this year. I only want a base Acuna and the non-auto base image variation. I have had no luck with wax recently, so I will stick to singles for the two Acuna's I want for my collection.

sooo........ Florial, Torres & Andujar have autos, that's awesome. But since I haven't even been able to find regular retail Bowman anywhere within 45 minutes of here I doubt any of this will survive on the shelves of Target for me to find.


Can we buy this on Target's website?


Group breaks? lol

These checklists are finalized several months in advance.

It's pretty silly. For $15, please show me a better buy. It's a really fun rip, and with guys like Florial, Baez, Gleyber, Kieboom etc there is some upside there.

Need I remind people what 2018 Bowman hobby/jumbo boxes are selling for? This is a great product. It's not the 2017 version, but for crying out loud thats one of the best products we will ever see.
