Default this is irritating

Just a few days after release Bowman draft is on sale?? I only pre ordered hobby boxes at 62 bucks a pop, but I feel for those that pre ordered jumbos for 220. On sale for 180 right after release!! I would be so pissed. I have never bought pre release. Is this common?

I don't think you can predict how things are going to sell? it must not have moved that well? the sale prices are pretty low on ebay so maybe that has something to do with it? when people are breaking 50 cases at a time there just isn't much money to be made and people don't buy maybe?
buying Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston, Amari Cooper, Todd Gurley, Odell Beckham Jr. and Star Player RC bgs slabs.

not to toot my own horn, but this is the first Bowman product I haven't pre-ordered in some quantity (ranging from a heckuva lot of 11 draft and 12 Bowman to a teeny bit of 12 chrome) for a few years because I kind of expected this. 2012 had been a solid year for Bowman so far, so my feeling was, looking at the Draft pre-sell prices, that unless you got in very early, the prices were higher than the weak-ish draft class would carry in the post-break auto market. I think we'll see weekend specials in the 50-55/box range for a few weeks, then they might creep up.
