My 2010 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects

I really thought about getting on here and giving a review of the '10 Bowman DP&P; however, I think there are plenty other blogs out there that you can found out about the mis-cuts and rough edges.  It seems to me that the Chrome Curl that plagued the other chrome product has been fixed.  This set is just what it is a prospecting set.  I like the variety of USA Team cards, Bowman First Cards, and rookie cards.  I got a total of 19 different USA Team cards and 28 1st round picks.  Not pictured below are the two Posey, two Heyward, and one Strasburg which I pulled from the packs.  Also not pictured below is Bryce Harper.  What I have added below are a few of the USA Team cards, some of the 1st round picks, refractors and my ONE hit per box.  It is a prospect set and this time of year makes it hard to get up for a set of unknowns unless you do a little research.  All and All I am pleased with the names I pulled.  What I am a little short on is my ONE hit.  I hope everyone else has more fun than I did with their Hobby, Retail, and Blasters.   How long is it until pitchers and catchers report?

2 of 19 USA Team cards

Blue Refractor and Light Blue Parallel

Grandal 39/399                   Pryor 177/199

2010 1st Round Picks 

(Two of the Hotter names I've heard)

(Nine other 1st Round picks I haven't seen posted elsewhere)

As you can see some of the cards have the over lay autos and some don't.  I think I'd prefer without if not real.

The only two regular refractors pulled from the hobby box

And Lastly my ONE hit

that I have to wait on if I redeem it

Which probably looks something like this

Good luck with whatever you are ripping through during the holiday season.  Remember this:

"My name's D.M.C. with the mic in my hand
And I'm chilling and coolin just like a snowman
So open your eyes, lend us an ear
We want to say
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"

New Look to the Dugout.

Hope you guys like the way it looks.

Here are a couple cards I pulled this weekend from some box breaks that I purchased the day after Thanksgiving.

2010 Topps Platinum Hobby Box (Base Cards)

2010 Topps Platinum Hobby Box (HITS)

2010 Topps Unrivaled 

2010 Bowman Chrome

2010 Absolute Memorabilia (Blaster Box Hit)

2010 Rookies and Stars Basketball (Retail Pull)

The Three Musketqueers  all in Heat uniforms (I'm a Hater I guess)

Those are just a few cards I picked up this weekend.  I did purchase a blaster box of Topps Prime but I have not had a chance to scan any of the cards.  They will be coming soon along with Bowman Prospects and Draft Picks when they are released on the 15th of December.

Hope you enjoy the new look
