Cool break so far - these look better than the Sterling football cards in my opinion.

I had to double take the Eric Young, brought back some flashes.

Mojo on upcoming boxes.

Bowman Sterling is imo the best product of the year. Pretty awesome stuff. I opened 2 boxes plus 4 packs of the stuff in the past few weeks. I've pulled some really nice cards, i'll try and post pics of them.

Would you be willing to trade the LaPorta? Lmk
dviv17
Sharp looking cards, you've pulled some nice autos. Good luck on the rest!
nick539

laskomonkey

BlackJack
Nice break.
kooljazz1966
I am a Sterling Fan....But for some reason all the cards look dark or subdued, not great but I can live with it. Nice stuff Mike.
benshobbies
Wow! My jaw has hit the floor. That was an amazing break. The autos probably paid for your box alone not to mention the excellent RC's. I really like watching 2007 Bowman Sterling box breaks and this year's product is just amazing. No wonder why these boxes are so expensive!
