I made a quick stop today at a Target to see if they had any WWE Topps Archives (they didn’t have any) and ended up finding a stray discounted 2014 Bowman Platinum blaster hidden on the bottom shelf. It’s a fun product at $12.99 a box for eight packs because it has autographs of most of the young prospects and rookies.
I snatched up the blaster and hit the checkout line hoping that I would pull an autograph of either Kris Bryant — whose auto I still don’t own — or Carlos Correa, whose likely to be named American League Rookie of the Year.
You won’t believe me when I say I had a feeling I might pull a Correa autograph. The reason I say this is because I bought a Correa autograph (2013 Bowman Inception) earlier in the day.
Well, guess what was hiding in the sixth pack … I’ve had incredible luck with this product. The same week it came out I opened a blaster and pulled a blue refractor Jose Abreu auto. That pull came the same week I bought Abreu’s 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects auto.
Now I have a dilemma: Do I keep both autos or move one? I love that I personally pulled a Correa auto but I really like the Bowman Inception one that was produced a year earlier and has a full signature instead of the shortened one on this Platinum.
