Default 2 boxes of EEE - black status auto 1/1

I apologize for no pics, opened two boxes last night, scanned the cards and was going to e-mail the scans to myself so I could list them at work today , but the internet wasn't working. Hoping to get that problem solved so I can get these listed - and to prove the pull if necessary. Two boxes yielded 15 auto's, 8-9 of which were on card. Panini actually did a good job with this, as another member pointed out they underpromised and overdelivered. Top 5 cards pulled:

Richie Schaffer on card auto /?? (don't remember, base version)
Tyler Naquin on card auto /?? (ditto)
Joey Gallo red parallel die cut on card auto /100
Byron Buxton blue parallel (status? aspirations?) on card auto /50 (pulled in second to last pack of box 2)

Buxton may sell for more than this, I'm not sure, but I'll call it the biggun of the break...

Rio Ruiz black status die cut auto 1/1

I've opened probably 30-40 cases over the last 7 years of Bowman products and EEE, never hit a superfractor auto or a black status until now. Was super excited, regardless of who the prospect is. Looked him up this morning, he actually looks like a guy with serious potential. Scott Boras doesn't represent just any old clown, right??? I don't know what I'll do with the Ruiz, may hold, may sell. Any Astro's fans out there with more insight on Ruiz? How about that guy who claimed his uncle was a scout and knew everything about everyone? I'd love some legitimate insight on this guy....

Thanks for the read - cards will be on Ebay by tomorrow provided I get my PC fixed...

As an Astros fan, Ruiz has some big upside. Likely a first round pick had he not been injured his senior year, it was very surprising that we were able to sign him later in the draft. Some compare Ruiz to Eric Chavez. Nice pull!
