Bowman Sterling - N F L

6 packs - 5 cards per pack
4 Rookie Autos, 2 Rookie Auto Relics, and 6 Jumbo Relics PLUS 1 Jumbo Patch Card

I received the following:

15 base cards



Please excuse the scans - these cards are mirror-like! In the time that I have been doing these reviews, this issue - Bowman Sterling Football has to be one of the top 2 or 3 issues that I have had the privilege to review. The cards are absolutely beautiful! The inserts are 130 pt. cards and very well done. The base cards are silver (mirror) finish and the photography is excellent. The reverse has personal stats, career stats (Sterling stats) and Bowman Reflection write up.

******************************************

Bowman Sterling is a high end premium card. The packs here in Orlando are running about $50 each - if they can be found. I have talked to several individuals who sell on the 'bay, and have been told that these boxes are well worth the investment.

If I have a criticism, I still don't like sticker autos on high end products - get them to sign the card!!! Put the stickers on the Topps base sets - PLEASE!!!! These cards are designed for the stickers and they still look fantastic.

For the set builder - this might be a small hill to climb to complete the base set. For the player collector, this is a gold mine. One will have a number of parallels to chase along with relics, auto'd relics, auto'd jumbo relics, and numbered parallels of the relics!

Overall grade A++ absolutely beautiful cards!!

Go buy several boxes and send the Tebow cards to me!

Duane, thanks again for a great review. I don't have any extra money to buy this right now, but it looks great. If you want to trade the Brian Quick, I would be interested in it. Thanks, Tony.

Sure - why not. I really only collect baseball. Pick out something you think is equal or close and post it. The Quick is yours.

Nice cards, I had similar good luck in a box I opened yesterday. I mentioned it here in the forums and also blogged on it. I also got a RGIII box topper. Definitely an excellent set.
