Back to Bowman International

Happy Halloween! Anyone giving out baseball cards for Halloween? I'd dress up and head out if someone in our area did...or at least send my kids over a few times...


So it wasn't until entering these today that I realized the 1999 Bowman International set is actually an insert for 1999 Bowman. I am not sure how I missed this originally, but I did, and have fixed the collection totals at the bottom accordingly to reflect the 9 inserts originally listed as just keeper cards. All those here are also new for me and added to the insert pile. How I found this out was in checking the insert sets when I got the Scouts' Choice inserts shown here.


Really don't need 4 of these...but it did make me look at the details on the back. So the redemption program was - if you send in 250 points, you get a special memorabilia card as they still are available. My question is - how expensive would it be to send in 250 redemption cards - I mean, dang - youd likely need a 600 or 800 count box to send those suckers in. Wonder if doing so, and the related postage would be worth whatever card you got back in return!

The rest

The first 2005-06 MVP card I have - and unfortunately a bit of a crease in it - bottom left corner running up the card - but a keeper for now.


Another needed 2007-08 Topps 1957-58 variation card that I needed for the insert set. Add in the couple McDonalds inserts as well - and these aren't too bad.
