2006 Bowman Sterling Baseball Cards Hobby Box

Postby Smileyman9 » Sat Jun 02, 2007 10:35 am

Has anybody here bought a box? I feel the urge to splurge - BUT, $350 is a lot of money...the last time I shelled out a chunk like that I ended up being rather disappointed in what I ended up with...

That's really one of the reasons I quit collecting. The sheer amount of cards on the market, and then the crazy amount of inserts. Toss on the prices, and it just wasn't all that fun anymore.

Best of luck getting some awesome ones out of that box though. ;-D

I'll second that !+)

You think the companies send loaded bozes to Beckett for review? They always seem to pull the Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig/Barry Bonds game used jeresy autographs #d to 5...and I get a freaking Bob Welch/Tommy John or Paul Maholm/Sean Marshall :[

Yeah, that's a lot to splurge on a box...normally I would either buy singles off eBay or buy $50 in packs and hope to get lucky. Best of luck to you though, and if you do go through with it, please let us know how you do ;D

It's always a gamble, I don't recommend it...but those who do well with those high end series buy sealed cases and there is always that coveted random case card they are looking for....Bowman Sterling is cetainly a high end top quality product...
I think you are better off with this years SPx which is less than half the price...just my opinion

Yea me too, too many cards IMO and you would spend 5 bucks for 20 cards and have only ever heard of 2 or 3

I agree that you should just buy singles off ebay.

Of all the possible cards in Bowman Sterling, how many are worth more on ebay than $350? It's really a bad gamble, and you could put together an awesome collection of cards on ebay for $350. Plus you get the players you want, the inserts you want, and usually the condition you want.

I agree that all of the fun is leaving the baseball card collecting hobby. It's all about money these days, and taking advantage of others, it seems like. Nowadays kids are interested in Pokemon and all that junk instead. What are you going to do?
