I don't think Bowman Sterling is for me.

I stopped by my LCS this morning to pick up some binder pages and a handful of Astros commons. While I was there I decided to spend some Christmas money on a mini-box of 2011 Bowman Sterling and a jumbo pack of 2011 Update.

After busting open the box I realized I may have had more fun and better results busting 3 more discounted A&G blaster than this product. (Speaking of which I did buy one more blaster yesterday but that'll be for another post) At least with A&G I could continue building my set. You live and you learn, at least I can use the pulls as trade bait hopefully. Here are the noteworthy cards from both the Topps Update and Bowman Sterling.

The Jimmie Foxx is my second Diamond Anniversary SP (the other being the Gehrig I pulled).

X-Fractor 105/199

The Panik is probably the best pull of the mini-box. I don't know much about him but what I've read they say he's got a bright future with the Giants.

As always these cards are for trade if anyone is interested. If you've got a decent baseball card fund then Bowman Sterling may be for you but I don't think I'll be chasing this set anytime soon. I've realized I like the fun of collecting a set with multiple interesting inserts and if I'm going to drop $50 I want more than 5 cards.

I would love to get the Panik for my Giants collection. Want to check out my bucket and see if there is anything you like?


If you go into the Baseball GU folder and then the Baseball GU Patches folder, I have a pretty sweet Andy Pettite patch you may be interested in.

Let me know if we can work out a deal.

Emails sent to both of you, I'm sure we can work out a deal.
