2019 Bowman Sterling

5 mini boxes - 1 auto and 5 base cards per mini box

<a href="https://imgur.com/D06bOtc"><img src="https://i.imgur.com/D06bOtc.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

I received the following:

22 base cards -- 22% of the base set of 100 -- no dupes!!

Bowman Sterling -- this has to be one of the best looking cards that I have ever had the opportunity to rip and/or own. Mirror finish, crisp photos, a design that does not detract from the player photo, and the Sterling logo/player name/team/ and position does not dominate the card -- very well done!!

The cards are stiff - well printed and have a mirror finish. The reverse has stats both personal and professional along with a Bowman profile.

Bowman Sterling should be a good issue for the rookie collector, the player collector, and the auto collector - not so much for the set builder or the parallel set builder. One will find printing plates, various colors of refractors - red, blue, gold, orange, etc.- along with wave refractors and speckle refractors.

I'm not collecting May, but that looks like the hit of the box.

I agree... Very few pitchers are 'collectible' and very few cards retain or increase in value (pitchers) .. especially in the last 35 years. With very few exceptions, always go with power hitters to grow in price and collectiblity. Just my opinion.

Nice review - as with many releases, not my cup of tea - but could see how others would jump in on this one!

Duane,

Trade posted! I hope that is enough for it. I searched far and wide for current Rays, and actually found a couple decent ones!

Thanks,
Zach
