Normal protocol with our box breaks usually consists of finding something with some hits and has a decent checklist for our chosen teams. Obviously price is also a key component.
This time around Brian decided to do some gambling with his choice and picked a hobby box of Bowman 2016. At least in my experience Bowman has been boom or bust. For every Kris Bryant you will find 30 late round busts. It is just the nature of the product.
Well, if you saw this post you already know that Brian made a great decision.
While Brian and Kevin both took home high end autos, I think I did pretty well myself.
This was one of the more diplomatic boxes we have ever broke. Brian pulled a Sano, Kevin received a nice dual auto and got a color parallel of a Pirate. Virtual high five to Brian.
Speaking of Kris Benson I just heard he was going to be in the Fan Favorites auto sent in this years Archives. While I love this, I would never call Benson a fan favorite. He was an injury proned pitcher who never met his potential as a 1st overall pick. I'm not sure if I find his inclusion or Sid Bream from last year more puzzling. I still want the Benson auto.....
I vaguely remember the game in which you could get these "winner cards."
This is the reprint of Cutch's rookie in the 2013 set. Every Cutch card is awesome so this card rules even though reprints of cards that are not that old to begin with is kind of odd.
Thanks for the break Brian and all the great extras. You really picked a winner.
Thanks for reading.
