I suppose my attempt to score some points with the lovely wife Tuesday night by magnanimously announcing I was refraining from attending the weekly auction at Cleve's would have been more credible had I not had 3 rack packs worth of cards in my hands at the time. But they were rack packs of Bowman Platinum, and I had my reasons.
I've been able to mostly pass on A&G so far, but the other day at Walmart, I just happened to be walking by the card section when I saw the stocker putting out some brand spanking new Bowman Platinum. Actually, I couldn't give you a good reason why I felt the need to grab these. I wasn't overly impressed with Platinum last year. Perhaps I wanted to be one of the first to post pack break results from this offering. So far, I haven't seen much on this set in the blogosphere. Probably, I was still coming down from the high from Brycemas and hoped lightning would strike twice. Yeah, actually I know that's it. I'll save the suspense and tell you I didn't hit anything big. But I do like these cards.
Rack packs come with 3 purple parallel cards. Here was what I got:
Looking at the checklist, I'll probably decline to build this set (not enough Rangers) but will probably put together some "rainbows" of a few players. Anyone else have any initial luck with Platinum?
