RE: 2011 Bowman Platinum 5 case break and contest thread (Contest #2 now live)
Case #2, Box #1
Emerald prospect refractors /599: Gary Brown, Billy Hamilton
Auto: Leon Landry
Emerald auto /399: Jimmy Paredes
Auto relic /666: J. P. Arencibia
Comments: I definitely wanted an Arencibia at some point, considering how weak the relic auto set is. Trying to get in the habit of typing “emerald” rather than “green. What should blue be, though?
Case #2, Box #2
Emerald prospect refractors /599: Miguel De Los Santos
Prospect superfractor /1: Cesar Puello
Auto: Anderson Feliz, Kyle Seager
Green auto relic redemption: Trevor Bell
Comments: I love getting superfractors, and I’m pretty excited about this one. I believe it’s the hit of the break so far. But the cash value is pretty modest. I don’t think I can call this an A box or even a B box, considering the autos.
Case #2, Box #3
Emerald prospect refractor /599: Jordan Swagerty
Blue prospect refractor /199: Jimmy Paredes
Auto: Clint Robinson
Gold auto /50: Miguel De Los Santos
Auto relic /115: Austin Jackson
Comments: There really aren’t many medium hits in this product. It’s going to be a big hit or nothing. So far nothing. Also: good thinking on the color progression, Topps. The color scheme makes most of the base veterans look goldish, then there is the most frequent gold base parallel, and then the really scarce gold prospect refractor. It’s gold, green, red for veterans, and green, blue, gold, red for prospects. Huh?
