2014 Bowman lot from Judson

All I bought of Bowman this year was a retail blaster which didn't land me much. I was really hoping for a neat-looking parallel or two, but no dice.

So when Judson from My Cardboard Habit was looking to raise some funds by running a few eBay auctions last month, his lot of 2014 Bowman parallels/etc caught my eye. So I set a reasonable sniping bid, and ended up winning the lot.

Here's a cool-looking refractor in-action:

Mesmerizing. Now if only Taijuan could stay healthy for a while.

I haven't even gone through them all yet, to be honest.

For posterity, here's a copy & paste of the cards included from the auction page: (Much of this is available for trades, btw.)

  1. Hey, if they're available, I'd love to claim…
    a Hunter Renfroe (purple)
    Ian Kennedy (silver ice)
    Homer Bailey (hometown)
    Mark Appel (hometown)
    Billy McKinney (hometown)
    I think that's all of the Texas flag parallels I need, I already have the Jay Bruce.

    Thanks a lot Gav, I'll take any of those you can spare.

    1. You got it.. I'll set those aside for the return package I owe you.

  2. I think Walker's tattoo is dancing on his arm.

    I'd love to work a deal to get any of the Brewers parallels. I've got the chrome and I think one of the minis, but let me know if we can work something out.

    1. Yeah, think I can pull out some Brewers for you. But the only Brewer mini refractor (i believe) is the one I pulled from the blaster and already traded to you (Tyrone Taylor).

  3. Your gifs are unreal...I love 'em everytime!

    1. Thanks, Mark. I'll see if I can find some Red Sox in there for you.
