Bowman? No man.

Against my better judgement, I bought a couple of those Bowman Value Packs.  Value huh?  I don't think so.

Three packs plus three purple bordered parallels for $9.46 plus tax does not a value make. 

I was going to make a pack war post out of them to salvage something for the blog, but I couldn't bring myself to scan 66 cards when I was only interested in about 5 of them. 

It wouldn't have been a contest anyway when one pack out of the six had three Rangers.  The highlights then?  I thought so.

Let's just get the purple parallels out of the way shall we?   Rays, A's and O's oh my. 

More people I've never heard of.  Twins, Cubs and Dodgers. 

These will all find their way into packages in the future.  The near future I hope. 

Oh sweet!  Minis refractors.  This is...oh, who am I kidding.  I love Ginter minis and I've even accepted all the others for the most part, but let's stop the madness.  Just say no to minis.  (The hypocrite in me still wants the Rangers of course.)

Now this is a little better.  An orange parallel of Carlos Santana.  Numbered to 250 I think and it is a catcher.  Too bad he's not in his gear. 

My favorite card out of the two value packs is this Yu Darvish (International?).  I've got a few Bowman that I'll be sticking in these trade packages as I send them out.

Have a great weekend everyone.  I'll be reading...even when I'm not writing. 


  1. The Buxton is a good card, him and correia are the 2 'hot' rookies in that product

  2. Yup I would give buxton (and that dodger) a good home.
