    Easy Gems on 2017 Bowman?

    Wanted to toss this out there but it seems as if 2017 Bowman has a few factors that are going to lead to some easy gems.

    The set design seems like it would be difficult to tell if a card is really off center.

    The production seems to be REALLY good on this set.

    I'm not seeing pack damage on edges and corners.

    I'm not seeing roller marks.

    The only problems I am seeing are with player autographs being streaky or blurred.

    Plus the fact that it's limited in production.....They only made enough to cover the pre-orders this year. Best regards, David

    I own a few singles, and am grading all of them. And I'm notoriously picky.

    Unless this is a fluke, Topps seems to be giving everyone gems this year. Which isn't necessarily a good thing.

    Good luck! If they take it to slab is it guaranteed to stay the same grade?
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    they don't but if you got the RCR this weekend and then submitted for slabbing this weekend, then the RCR grade is guaranteed.
