"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."

You then left out over half of my post, and just quoted the silly comment and the mention of 2018 bowman prices. I didn't mention 2018 bowman prices to imply 2018 mega box prices have any correlation. Because they don't. I simply made reference as a way to say "hey, we have a 2018 bowman product that is decently priced and still has some hits to chase". Perhaps I should've clarified, but it's ridiculous to take those 2 sentences from my post to run with this narrative that I think the product will do well because 2018 bowman did well.

The checklist isn't as strong as 2017, but it's still a great product IMO at that price point.

But you made the direct correlation... when I first read your comment I thought we have a newbie here- The CL is very weak but at $15 its worth chasing the few Autos of value and some of the parallels- Topps just needs a few "hype men" and they quit trying.. LAZY! Could have been so much better.

I happened to be in 2 seperate targets today. I wasn't really looking for them in either. The first had no bowman anything. The second had about 50 of the mega boxes.
