Box Breaks: 3 Blasters of 2017 Bowman

 
Like I said, I'm totally HOOKED on this baseball craze. With one of the most LOUSY basketball seasons of all time, not only because of the predictability of the Finals, but a horrible weak rookie class, it's nice to sink my teeth into something that's ON FIRE like baseball is. Even Retail is being bought at a record pace seems like, with everyone searching for Aaron Judge  cards. I decided to take a shot at three Blasters of Bowman baseball. I don't typically do Bowman breaks, but I decided to give it a whirl. Here's what I got

Overall Thoughts: Well..nothing big, but did pull an auto and a Judge Rookie. I'm also a big fun of the Bowman 1951 and 1992 Inserts. They look pretty cool. A Fun rip considering how much the hobby stuff is going for. Here's some pics of my pulls.
