    Were the breakthrough cards in regular Bowman product? 2018?

    The redeemed card is one nice looking card.

    I like those On Demand and Leaf. I always picked up the Now Call-Up cards on Bunt because I thought they were like the extreme degree of the RC emblem and a lot of the good ones actually ended with counts under 100. For some reason, I would forget to go to Topps.com and purchase the physical version though. I got lucky with Soto and, even though I had no idea who he has at the time, bought his physical Call-Up. I don't remember the final card count but it was much higher than the Bunt version.

    Nats fan here.....not trying to give a “hot take” here, but from my perspective the kid is better than Harper is right now. So much more consistent in his approach and stays within himself so much better.

    I couldn’t have enjoyed watching Soto any more than I did last year. I watch just about every game and he was the only thing to be excited about for most of the year (other than Scherzer being his usual self).

    Best part about him is what a good kid he is by all accounts. Very, very easy guy to root for. (Bryce not so much....but I digress)

    Really enjoy seeing all of the cards you keep grabbing of his. I thought I had gone “heavy” on Alex Bregman during the past 18 months, but you sir have put me to shame!

    Very cool collection.

    Always looking for tougher PSA 10's of Nolan Arenado, Alex Bregman, Mookie Betts, Francisco Lindor, and Mike Trout.

    Nice!! Just a few autos there! I hope to have the same type of run with Mattingly this year.

    some throwbacks:

    Question: do all of these have Acuna's name misspelled on the back?

    Yeah, prices are insane and it's only gonna get worse if one or both of these guys start out hot. If they do start well, the prices now will be considered a bargain. I sold 101 of the Soto Chrome Update PSA 10 and just submitted another 50ish.
    The Sapphire cards are beautiful! Too bad Soto didn't have one

    as far as the golds and foils, did any of them only have horiztonal cards?

    my case did not have one vertical card of either.

    my blacks, blues, indys, negs, etc were all verts but not one in a gold/foil.

    just findng that odd...

    I did not notice any of that. Only thing I noticed was the same run of golds in a couple cases.
