    Why Hasn't Anyone Been Busting BC?

    Usually by now there'd be tons of BC breaks in the box break section, and outside of our group break, Lisa's 3 case breaks and a couple others, I haven't seen much busted. I think it has to do with Topps' screw up of releasing TC and BC 2 days apart. Any other thoughts?

    Back in 2006, yes.

    Now, not so much.

    I opened some. Like many on the board, this checklist left me scratching my head. I may have done well, I may have gotten slammed. Time will tell, but there is really not much to be excited about in this release. On the other hand, I really do like TC this year and I went pretty heavy on it.

    For some reason, I can't upload pics from my iphone, or else I would do more posts in there.

    It's not the product that explains the low # of posted breaks.

    Allocation for me was 1 jumbo to 8 regular boxes. Since they load jumbo now I didn't want to have to buy all the regular. Just passed instead.

    allocations on BC and Draft suck, 4 to 1 most places. At least 2014 Bowman i am seeing 1 to 1.

    So far there has been pretty much nothing of the guy that am collecting on eBay.

    Base chrome lots and a few regular Refractors that's it. I'd say pretty unprecedented for 4 days after release.

    EDIT: Oops, there was a purple refractor.

    Go to Blowout forums perhaps - there maybe a more diverse group busting wax over there.

    As a lcs owner Im seeing a huge dropoff in card interest in general. Its sad to see. imho there doesn't need to be 3 bowman products plus the high ends. 1 low end & 1 high end with everyone in them would be much better. Collectors are getting tired of Topps' ploy to spread the top guys out in order to sell multiple products, and so am I.

    Exactly. It's sad, but it's been happening for two decades.
    I don't undersrand why so many people are surprised that less people are buying cards.
    The hobby has been shrinking every year since the early '90s.
    Stupid decisions by card companies and exclusive licensing are only hastening the hobby's perpetual downfall.
