That's why it was so hard for me to have the 2014 Bowman Hobby Box that Topps donated for my 2000th post contest lying around. I wanted to tear into that thing and see how many Superfractors could be in one box! Jedi Jeff over at 2X3 Heroes will be happy to know that I didn't open it and it went out in the mail on Thursday.
To celebrate my remarkable control not to tear open the Hobby Box, I purchased the last 2014 Bowman Value Pack from my local Walmart. That pack had been there for 4 or 5 days, all by itself. I didn't really want it as I was holding out for the possibility that they might get some of those blister packs of Heritage with the black parallels. Maybe they only have those at Target because I still haven't seen one.
I decided since I gave away a box of Bowman so I'd just buy the value pack. No one else seemed to want it.
Pack one was pedestrian. The usual assorted base cards, prospects and two Chrome cards of players I've never heard of and probably won't ever make it to the Show.
Packs 2 and 3 made me laugh.
Here we are in the car. Can you tell how excited I am?
Here are packs 2 and 3 from the value pack Same Chris Bostick base card for the Rangers. If you have to get a dupe, it might as well be for the team you collect.
Wait just a minute. Am I seeing dueling Orange Wave packs?
Isn't that something. Two Orange Wave refractor packs. The same two base cards on top and 5 Orange Wave refractors in one pack with 4 Orange and 1 Green refractors in the other. I was shocked as I hadn't pulled any of these in the two blasters or two value packs I opened previously.
The Orange Waves are:
Micah Johnson--White Sox
Jacob May--White Sox
The Green Wave is Jake Barrett, #10/25 for the DBacks.
Judson from My Cardboard Habit and I were talking about how I seem to pull DBacks all the time and this is just further proof of that.
Have a great weekend and may all your packs have hits from your favorite team/player!
