View Full Version : Busting a case of 07-08 BOWMAN ( CONTEST )

07-25-2008, 10:19 PM
Alright folks, heres a fun little contest in which I will award the winner a prize from my 07-08 Bowman Draft Picks and Stars case break.

First off, I love this product and cannot get enough of it. I've broken a case of this + about 15-20 boxes of this and countless random retail packs and hobby packs.

I just got a little contest to go with this case break which will be happening on Tuesday ( wednesday at the latest ).

You get 13 Autos per case on Avg ( 1 per box, 2 per hot box, 1 hot box per case ).

Heres a chance for the lucky guesser to guess the 13 Autos.

For those that guess the most correct autos I get will receive a DUPE of an Autograph'd refractor I have OR a choice of 1 ALL STAR Bowman Chrome Black Refractor OR 2 common Bowman Chrome Black Refractors ( #'d /99 )

I got about 70 refractors or more from this product already, countless JSY cards and so forth.

IF someone guesses ALL 13 Autos I receive correctly ( you do NOT have to guess which color refractor they are, just the player ) I will send you a Greg Oden Bowman Chrome RC REFRACTOR BV over 60$!

Just a small FYI Kevin Durant does NOT sign for Topps ( includes Bowman ) so there is 0 chance I pull a Durant Auto.


If I pull a 1/1 card and you guess the correct player I will send you an Al Horford 07-08 Artifacts AUTOFACTS Rookie Autograph BV 40$.

So heres the contest rules in a pinch...

Guess the 13 Autos I will receive, whoever gets the most Autos correct will receive (1) All Star BLACK REFRACTOR /199 OR (2) common/semi-star Black Refractors /199 from Bowman Chrome 07-08 Basketball.

Guess the 1/1 ( printing plater or Superfractor/SuperFractor Auto ) of ANY player and win a 2007-08 Artifacts AUTOFACTS Al Horford RC AUTO BV 40$!

For the 1/1's - There are 2 1/1 Superfractor AUTOS I know that have been pulled, Dominic Mcguire ( by me ) and Greg Oden ( from a video on YOUTUBE ) that are NOT in this product anymore. There are still 158 Superfractors out there, outside of those 2 I do not know of anyone that has any.

Also I have edited this post to add in the tiebreaker, and also do NOT want people editing their posts, if I see an edit after I post what I broke, you are disqualified and I am sure the SCF Admins will agree that, that will be cheating. The deadline will be Tuesday 3am EST ( 12am PST for the west coast gang ).

Please submit all your guesses then and I appreciate all the responses so far, this should be fun for me as well as you.

I will also be posting a list of the Black Refractors I currently have and scanning them for my bucket so people can already start picking out what they would like to receive ( unless they want something from the break of course ).

Thanks all and expect scans tomorrow!

Here's the list of the Black Refractors I CURRENTLY I have, I normally pull a good chunk per case.

You have approval for the contest. GL!

Also, as a suggestion, you might want to let members know that they cannot edit their post entries.

Alright all guesses are final, I am going to copy and paste all the guesses with the user names of all the people that have participated and keep it handy for when I bust open my case.

This SHOULD be here Wed/Thu ( coming from Buffalo to MI so its not that far ). I apologize for the delay.

I am also scanning the Black Refractors this evening, I've already listed them but I will scan for proof :)

Good luck all on your guesses and hopefully someone gets the Oden Refractor RC!

I had to place another order to Dave & Adams for this, the last case I got we packed up already because we are moving this coming Friday, waiting for them to process the order and I will provide the tracking number ON THIS POST so everyone can track the package with me. I ordered 1 day shipping, either it will get here Monday or Tuesday in the AM. At which point I will be posting the results!

Sorry the damn delay and I'd rather not open all my boxes I already packed for the move right now. She's en route though!

08-02-2008, 05:45 PM

So thats all 12 boxes, I opened my 2 other boxes and pulled a Gold Refractor of Marco Belinelli ( 80$ ). That stuff doesn't count.

Since I only thought there would be 13 Autos instead of 15, I will take the first 13 Autos I received and use those for the contest. I cannot predict if Bowman is going to send me extra Autographs or not.

Also, this was the 2nd case of this I busted, and Lebron and Kobe cards come back to back. I've noticed this with the other 10+ boxes I've broke of this as well.

Also the Hot Boxes are usually buried on the bottom of the case ( that is if you see the top of the boxes on the end you open ) and they were always box 11 that I opened. I'll see if this trend continues with my next case.

Once I figure everything out I will post the winner for the contest and get their shipping Addy once they choose from the list I give them of the Black Refractors.

Also as of right now none of this stuff is for trade, I will compile a list of the stuff I want to trade or sell on a separate post after I find all my doubles etc.

The Oden is for sale.

08-05-2008, 12:47 PM
Sweet Oden auto, it looked like a very solid case, congrats!

08-05-2008, 01:38 PM
Loading everything in cases now, will update shortly :)

08-05-2008, 03:17 PM
Now for the Contest. Since there were more than 13 Autos I am just doing the first 13 plucked from the case. I am not going to attempt to contact everyone about sending me 2 more names as I posted it already and this has taken long enough.... anyways...
