Tried the new Bowman Draft for 2021.

Must admit I don't know much but the Pacheco looks to be a nice hit! Looks to be a PSA candidate

Got me a numbered Bobby Witt Jr for the PC so that's good!

I think I might get a super jumbo if i can get enough cash in time

The Pacheco is a great hit. He's been playing well so far this year. Draft has got a bit out of my comfort zone these last two years. I remember paying $300 for a jumbo in 2019. It's doubled since then. These are my favourite products in the hobby - Bowman Draft, Bowman Chrome and Bowman baseball and they pretty much have been since 2018.

The Pacheco is a beautiful card. And worth a tidy sum.

The Tiedemann is also a decent hit. Definitely one of the pick of the pitchers

I had a preorder box that my shop had lost, so they traded it for an equivalent box and i took the hobby jumbo.

Great decision as i didn't want that Obsidian Basketball ;)
 
It's definitely worth grading as it's big card and potentially a very big card. He's in a little slump at the moment but I like him a lot.

I've never graded with BGS before because I don't like their slabs. Also, I think a BGS 9.5 for a card like that is not going to command much more value on the secondary market than a PSA9. However, a PSA10 will be far more valuable than a BGS9.5.
 
I think it's the reverse with baseball. I prefer sleek rather than chunky. Anyway, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, etc.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

This guy getting out of his slump ;)

Just sent the Pacheco to BGS.

First BGS sub ever. Interesting to see how it goes. It looks like a 9.5 from the eye. I wasn't confident of a 10 with PSA so...
 
I always sub with PSA but what you are doing is a good move.....provided you don't get a BGS 9, lol. A BGS 9.5 is a much better bet than a PSA9 and from my experience it's difficult to be totally sure if a BCA will gem at PSA.

My second last order( 33 cards) the two cards I was most certain would get a PSA10 both got PSA9's and that hurt. And they were cards from 2019 - Bowman( Jrod) Bowman Draft ( CJ Abrams). Up until then every 2019 Bowman Chrome card I had subbed had gotten a PSA10. Even when I got the cards back I couldn't see anything wrong with them.

Good luck! Hope you get a least a BGS 9.5.

I'll go:

Centering 9.5
Surface 9.5
Edges 10
Corners 10

Black label on a black refractor would be pretty nice ;)
 
I don't know how the system works at BGS but I thought you needed all 10 sub grades to get a Pristine and for a Black Label( add in wank noise) it was a 10 with extra eye appeal. Enlighten me champ. How does it work? I'm guessing with your example you still get a BGS 9.5?
 
I probably should give BGS a try. A PSA9 on a modern Bowman Chrome Auto adds no value. You are better off selling the card raw imo. You might get slightly more money for the 9 but it merely covers the grading cost.
