What’s Buzz-worthy: Bowman Inception is a fun break with nothing but hits and a mix of rookies and prospects — a brand that Buzz has ripped into in the past while not being a heavy prospector. Box prices aren’t too expensive compared to the standard Bowman fare that delivers autos less easily, though the ink here is cheaper (and therefore easier to collect) than the Chrome stuff when it gets rarer in the rainbow. There are some dazzling cards to be found in this brand, though this box seemed quite dull with its only parallel being a Purple that looks very close to a base card. Odds are, your box will beat this one.
