2011 Bowman Sterling - M L B

6 packs - 5 cards per pack PLUS a box topper!
'2 Auto'd cards and 1 relic card per mini box
1 Dual Auto'd card & 1 Dual Relic Card inside'

I received the following:

11 Base cards - no dupes!!:D :D

This issue - Bowman Sterling MLB - is a premium issue. In Orlando, the 6 mini-box boxes have a SRP in excess of $300 and the individual mini boxes at about $60 +/- not an inexpensive undertaking. The cards are high gloss - very stiff and are designed well. The reverse has stats and Bowman Reflections on each featured player. Of the base cards I received, 6 had the RC designation.

David Lyon
Josh Elander
Ben Revere
Danny Duffy

Box Topper

Gold Refreactor and Gold Auto

Joe Panik
Trevor Bauer
Both #ed to 50


2011 Bowman Sterling contains rookies, current stars, stars of tomorrow, and USA Baseball stars. One that collects specific players will really enjoy this issue. The chase of the various parallels should be a fun trek. The set collector might have a bit of a hill to climb.... and the master set builder - well -- you might be facing an extreme uphill battle.

All of the autos that I have received are all stickers..... enough said. I will say the cards are designed specifically for the sticker. The sticker autos I received are all straight and none are smudged. I have also seen redemption cards for some of the autos - though none received in this particular rip.

I have gripped in the past about the numbering of the various cards being placed on the front of the card - to Topps credit - the numbering of each of the cards (that are numbered) are numbered on the reverse!! THANK YOU!!!

I did receive one extra card - an auto (USA) that was included in a 5 card pack - therefore, I received 32 cards - not just the 31 promised in the box!:p

Overall grade A+ cards look very good!

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays autos, relics, and parallels to me!!

Let me find something for you for that Brandon Nimmo. I should still have a Longoria A&G Relic floating around here somewhere.

Any chance for me to get crack on the base cards? Also need to know the numbers and if base or has light blue circle. Best regards, David

Wow, definitely one of the better breaks I've seen of this product due to the Bauer Gold Auto. Last season at UCLA, Trevor got to the point where we expected him to get a cg win in every start! If there's anything in my bucket you are interested in trading it for/towards, plmk by pm. Thanks.
