If you collect Bowman you are an early adopter, someone who needs the first of anything. That is mostly what this product has going for it. A prospectors’ set and designed for rainbow collectors and first card seekers, 2015 Bowman Football has a built in, very defined audience. One that doesn't care about rookies without team uniforms or even jersey numbers, mammal design element but consistently delivers what it is expected.
For some the better option is to wait for Topps flagship football product, avoiding the role of the dice on players, some of whom don’t even make it past the draft. But at 4 autos a box, there is enough to compensate.
2015 Bowman Football falls under our classification of trading cards. There are several configurations of retail and hobby exclusive packaging. We opened a hobby box of 10 jumbo packs with 25 cards per pack with the promise of four autographs and one relic card.
Here is a look at some of the cards we pulled.
2015 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball Cards is now in its fifth year. While this is still a set builders look forward to putting together, some of the early elements that made it fun and different have been dropped leaving this just another option in a wide variety of cards to collect. Unfortunately without those elements (who remembers the original speculation about the Gypsy Queens and Kings?) there are many similarities to other releases so we might see GQ start to take a back seat to others. What continues to make this a desirable product, and saves it in many ways, are the on-card autographs.
Gypsy Queen falls under our classification of trading cards. You can find it in retails and hobby form with Hobby Boxes containing 24 – 10 card packs with a box topper of 10 minis and 2 relic and 2 autograph cards.
