I'm Addicted to Cards - 2009 Bowman Sterling Box Break (Must See)

Product: 2009 Bowman Sterling
Boxes: 1
Packs: 6 Mini Boxes
Cards: 5 per box
Price: $220 per Box (picked up @ the White Plains Show

Went to Atlantic City Friday & Saturday did ok playing Craps. Not as much as I would have liked. Today I went to work the alarm went off at 5am exciting. All morning I said if its slow I'm going to cut out and hit the card show because I wanted to pick up some pages & team bags. Well it was super slow so I jetted out around 1:30pm. Stopped at the show on my way home picked up the pages & team bags looked around didn't see to many great deals on singles. So I hit up every dealer that had Sterling for a price and there was 5 dealers that had the boxes the prices ranged from $220-$240. So I bought from the cheapest guy and boy did I buy the right box. Check out the pack by pack breakdown below.

Box Topper: WBC Blue Refractor Jersey: Dae Ho Lee #019/125

Mini Box 1:
RC Base: Bobby Scales
Prospect Refractor: Abraham Almonte #073/199
RC Auto Gold Ref: Tommy Hanson #42/50
Prospect Auto: A.J. Pollock
WBC Jersey: Shinnosuke Abe

This pack alone with the Hanson makes box. I have yet to see anything lower then a refractor auto of Hansons hit Ebay I would guess this will go for $150. I also pulled a Yankee prospect refractor which is just an added bonus. Should I stop here?

Mini Box 2:
RC Base: Brian Duensing
Prospect: Michael Almanzar
Prospect Auto: Jiovanni Mier & Bobby Borchering
WBC Jersey: Fei Feng

No excitement here. So just check out the cards.

Mini Box 3:
RC Base Refractor: Trevor Crowe #042/199
Prospect: Brett Oberholtzer
RC Auto: Daniel Schlereth
Prospect Auto: Mike Leake
WBC Jersey Gold Refractor: Yu Darvish #29/50

Another Gold Refractor and it being one of the bigger stars makes this box a major success.

Mini Box 4:
Prospect: Edilio Colina
Prospect Auto Refractor: Reymond Fuentes #078/199
Prospect Auto: Scott Campbell
Dual Auto Posey & Beckham
WBC Jersey: Edgar Gonzalez

Wowsers another excellent hit with the dual auto. To me this box looks over the top.

Mini Box 5:
RC Refractor: John Mayberry #017/199
Prospect: Luis Exposito
RC Auto: Ryan Perry
Prospect Auto: Tommy Mendonca
WBC Jersey Refractor: Hanley Ramirez #162/199

No excitement here. So just check out the cards.

Mini Box 6:
RC Base: Tyler Greene & Travis Snider
Prospect Refractor: Greg Veloz #171/199
Prospect Auto: Drew Storn & Rinku Singh
WBC Jersey: Russ Martin

Got 6 cards of of this pack which is an added bonus.

I really didn't have the funds to buy this box but I did. I was really happy I bought the cards they look great. I also pulled 1 Killer hit & 2 decent hits to make this box a success. I would like to buy another box but I don't think I'd be able to come close to this box. I will be putting most of the hits on Ebay tonight but if you need any of the base cards or any of the following hits Martin, Ramirez, Gonzalez, Feng, Campbell, Storen, Singh & Schlereth let me know maybe we can work out a trade. What did you think of my box? I guess at times its ok to be addicted to cards........


  1. Is the hanley up for trade??

  2. sure is do you any Yankees jersey cards?

  3. jeez, a hanson auto and the posey beckham dual?! I believe thats the best dual in the set lookign at the checklist. Very nice those 2 cards alone paid for the box.

  4. Im intrested in the edgar Gonzalez

  5. Unbelievable break man. Great job.

  6. Ace do you have any Yankees jersey or bat cards?
