I'm usually no fan of Bowman, but I do like to sample anything new that appears on the card shelves, as long as it's baseball.
I didn't expect to see any Bowman until the end of this month. Not around here. But I was running errands today and stopped at the store for some garbage bags before getting a haircut.
I'll give you a moment to catch your breath from that recounting of my epic, adventurous, wild-and-crazy afternoon.
OK, to review: Errands. Garbage bags. Haircut.
While in Kmart, I was amazed to find rack packs of 2010 Bowman. Simply stunned. Kmart is blowing away Wal-Mart in the card aisle. Sheer annihilation. Target's going to have to watch its back soon, too, if it doesn't start moving.
I had cash for just one rack pack. So I bought that and the garbage bags. You'll note on the scan that the wrapper is torn. I had 10 minutes before my haircut. I had to open the pack before I got home. What else am I going to do, look at gel product?
So here are my first Bowman cards of the season. Will they be my last? Probably not. Considering:
1. #145 - David Wright, Mets
10. #BP71 - Bo Greenwell, Indians, 1st card
11. #BP86 - Michael Wing, Angels, 1st card
