    2017 Bowman Buybacks

    Anybody got any info on these cool looking cards? I'm guessing they have the same color scheme as the 2017 Topps Rediscover Topps Buybacks. I snagged a 2007 Thome Gold (at least I think it's gold) on ebay yesterday.

    No info out there, except similar speculation on the color foil. I got one Sizemore so far, hoping there are more. I'll be interested in seeing the Ultimate Buybacks going live. I can only imagine the trainwreck that turns out to be. Someone might get a beat-to-crap 52 Bowman Mantle with a foil stamp on it.

    I've gotten a cross section similar to Topps, red, blue, gold, silver & bronze. I haven't opened enough to gauge if the scarcity is the same by color.

    They won't be putting in cards that are larger than the normal size card. It just won't work with the packaging.

    52 Bowman isn't too large, but I assume the 53-55 Bowmans, and super-valuable smaller ones, will be the subjects of this redemption program. But history shows the condition of vintage cards in deals like this is underwhelming, to be generous. And having a stamp on them is distasteful, to me.

    It seems like the 90 to 96 bowman cards are few and far between. I have only seen 1 Puckett so far.

    How often are they stamping the "same" card with different color foil? I've seen 3 different Adam Dunn buybacks but they were all from different years.

    Good question. Not sure. I've seen 2 Jim Thome cards so far and there both from 2007.

    Just when you thought you had enough of buybacks, lol. It looks like they are quite a bit more limited than the Rediscover Topps buybacks. I like them, but can see how others may not.

    I pulled a 1990 Olerud RC from a blaster, which was pretty damn awesome.

    Zero examples from 1992, 1994, 1996 or 1998 Bowman so far.

    One 1995 buyback (Dave Winfield) has turned up.

    Really curious as to what's happening with these.
