    This year's Bowman collation is awful!!

    Bowman is one set I try to put together every year but this has been particularly difficult and frustrating. I don't usually buy boxes so I pick myself some packs at my local lcs. Of the 3 or 4 jumbo packs I've bought, I've gotten the same prospects just about every single time. These packs were purchased weeks apart but from the same store. It's gotten to the point where I'm afraid to buy it now. Anyone else have this happen am I just unlucky?

    Topps collation has been brutal for years. Miss the days when cards were randomly packaged instead of always in the same sequence. Very frustrating for set builders. Not sure why they could be done randomly in the 80's but not now.

    Does it have anything to do with the guaranteed hits in every pack/box/case instead of the per so many packs inserts of back in the day?
