Bowman Baseball has come back to Tar-get! Sorry, that was a Rock (WWE) reference.
Today when I went to Target they had 2011 Bowman Baseball rack packs strewn on the shelf, and a shipment box on a register with a sealed gravity box, which I opened and took 8 packs and 3 blasters which I also snarfed for safe keeping. I honestly don't know what to do with the blasters, I may only open one and sell the others. What do you think?
I opened the 8 loose packs and I scanned the prospects and inserts to show you what you can get from a random bunch of packs. Here we go!
You might be wondering why I included 2 base cards, but I hate these two cards. Not that I hate the players by any means, but honestly why use a photo of a pitcher hitting? Not a fan. Also, I don't like these goofy angles of a guys swing on a card. Sooz was right that many of the pictures on the cards are terrible, these were just my two worst ones.
Orange parallel, Aaron Hill
Some sort of state insert that is actually part of the regular set. Card is numbered within the set, no idea what purpose they serve.
Purple Chrome /700
Topps 100 Which are coincidentally 100 times better than last years.
Finest Futures These are really nice looking inserts, these along with the 100 and Best would have been sufficient inserts for this set.
Topps of the Class
Bowman's Best (Best insert if you ask me.)
I had a good time opening these, but I think it was more fun finding a whole shipment box filled with unsearched goodness in Target. It felt like Christmas morning, only with way more baseball cards.
What insert do you like best? The Finest Futures and Bowman's Best may be my two favorites.
