Product: 2017 Bowman Platinum Baseball Collectors Box
Topps built up the excitement for this release on July 5th. This was a Walmart exclusive release and the date of release, myself and other collectors scurried around our respective towns searching for the product.
I struck out on the 5th, but on the 6th, I was successful in finding 2 Collectors Boxes which guaranteed two autos per box, and 4 blaster boxes. I had hopes of busting one Collectors box and listing the rest on ebay. As a matter of fact that is exactly what I did. Check out the video of the break here, I tried Periscope this time on my @r9tee twitter handle.
I did have fun busting the product. As expected, the cards are foil cards, with some colored parallels. I had fun catching the little differences in the cards, with prospect names in black, rookie and vet names in white, then looking at the inserts and all that fun stuff. Of course I was chasing Judge and Bellinger and although I didn’t get an auto of either, I did hit some base cards and they did well on ebay. Which was cool.
I will be listing what I pulled and hope to come close to breaking even.
I hope that you have a chance to bust the product yourself and enjoy the chase, after all, it is a great part of the hobby.
