Back Again (also Bowman Platinum break!)

I was actually out of town for most of the month and didn't have the time pre-trip to write up a bunch of posts. My wife and I took a nice trip overseas and visited London and the Netherlands. We had a great time and saw lots of sites and ate lots of food. Onto more important things when it comes to baseball card blogging.. showing newer-ish baseball cards. Back when Bowman Platinum came out I was able to get my hands on 2 of the Collectors boxes and decided to open them both. Forty packs total and I enjoyed the break. It was entertaining and I think I did well.

Check out the wares.

Let's get straight to the meat and potatoes. The Amed Rosario is numbered out of 75, he got some time up with the Mets this year and is a highly ranked prospect. The Dalbec is numbered out of 25, I don't know a ton about him but the Red Sox are always popular. Torres is the Yankees number 1 prospect and he pulls a Judge this card will pay for my retirement. The Mejia is a solid hit as well. Pretty happy with the 4 autos. Wish they were on-card but I do like the design. 

The Torres at the top is actually the rarest hit of the break. The insert out of 25 was 1 in 1,000 something packs. 

Did manage to pull the Judge base (no Bellinger but I purchased it separately later). The Moniak is the rookie Image Variation. Pretty cool to hit a semi rare PC card. I hope he plays well for the Phillies in the future.

Thanks for reading! Next Philly show is December 1st-3rd. Seems like a lot of good signers including Rhys Hoskins!


  1. i enjoyed the design this year but didn't bust any. glad you had a safe trip home!

  2. Platinum is my favorite design of the 2017 card year. You did well with the two Gleyber Torres cards!
    Sounds like your trip was pretty nice, too!

  3. You did very well with the autographs!

  4. Some pretty big names with the autos. I was a fan of Platinum as a nice cheaper alternative to Chrome. .

    What a great trip!
