2009 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects Rack Pack
Written by Matt at 12:35 PM
It seems like everyone all across the interweb is opening this product in ridiculous quantities. I picked up a single hanger pack at Target for $4.99. Let's take a look:
BDP33 Tim Wood
BDP38 Clayton Mortensen
BDP10 Jorge Padilla
Holy mother of dumb luck...
BPA-MI Michel Inoa Prospect Autograph
BDPP44 David Holmberg
BDPP4 Virgil Hill
BDPP41 Jonathan Meyer
BDPP73 Mark Fleury (Doesn't he play hockey or something?)
BDPP46 David Hale Chrome
BDP54 Josh Reddick Chrome
BDPW34 Seiichi Uchikawa Gold
BDPP71 David Nick Purple Refractor
I forget who said it originally...I think it was dayf, but Bowman products always seem like a grab bag of different parallels and card types, none particularly rarer than another. It really is a lot for the mind to handle. This is especially true with Draft Picks and Prospects, where I have knowledge of approximately none of the players in the set. Obviously, the autograph was unexpected, although the prospect autos are seeded 1 in every 11 of these rack packs. That seems like pretty favorable odds for retail. The purple refractors look much cooler in person, and they are seeded 1:3 packs.
Would I buy more? Probably not. The anonymity of the players is a turnoff for me. However, I'm not a prospector. I can certainly understand how someone interested in that element of the game would enjoy this set.
