Ultimate Checklist: 2008 Bowman Sterling

2008 Bowman Sterling is out and it is one of those sets that we normal folk can't really afford to buy. Still, where Grandersons reside...

This particular issue has a Curtis Granderson Relic Card.  Can you see it?  Oh, there it is, sandwiched between a bunch of actual relic cards.  That's right folks, Curtis has a redemption in Bowman Sterling.  Ebay currently shows the relic, refractor, black refractor (#/25), and gold refractors (#/50) available.  Checklists indicate that there is also a red version (1/1) out there somewhere.

Personally, redemptions scare the bejesus out of me.  I have never actually pulled a redemption card, but have heard horror stories of the actual card redeemed being different than the one advertised and/or taking forever to arrive.  While I'm a big fan of online redemption codes (in theory), they have completely eliminated my confidence in buying redemptions online, for fear that the codes will be no good.  So, for now, Bowman Sterling and I will just avoid one another.  Hopefully, a few of these redeemed relics will find their way online and I can snatch them up then.

  1. We agree completely about the redemption cards, and they do appear on eBay. Better to be safe than wrongly redeemed....
