That was a "funny picture" that popped up on my Twitter feed, but I edited in a pile of card wrappers instead of a guy asleep on the couch.
Here's the last hobby box from my September splurging. This was a good deal I stumbled upon on eBay: $26.77 shipped for two (2) 2000 Bowman hobby boxes. Under $14 for a hobby box works for me.
I've never ripped much Bowman, but I'm not necessarily anti-Bowman. In contrast to the last box I ripped, 1994 Collector's Choice, interesting photography is not on the menu here. Ripping Bowman is like playing a game of "Spot the big leaguer" with a large percentage of the players never making the majors. But there are also a lot of early cards of guy who go onto nice MLB careers. Plus there are some veterans mixed in so you'll get at least a couple dudes you've heard of.
So let's check out what these 2 boxes had in store for me...
|Here are the 3-per box Tool Time inserts. Furcal is probably the best name here. All up for trade.
|Here's the stack of cards for me. I have dupes available of some of them (Griffey, Gwynn, Mariano, Larry Walker, Vlad, Pedro)
So that wraps up my recent wax attacks. No more ripping for me for a good long while (let's hope). Again, please get in touch if you can help me turn the cards that don't fit into my collection into cards that do. (My wantlist is here.) I'll soon be going back through my other recent trade bait / box break posts (2006 Flair, 2006 Ovation, 1994 Collector's Choice) and following up with interested commenters, looking to get a few trades going. Sorry for the delay replying to those of you who expressed interest.. but I'm hoping to get stuff going with y'alls in these next few days.
