I am happy to follow up yesterday’s big news with a pack of 2013 Bowman Sterling Baseball.  Welcome back for another Sterling Thursday, everyone!

Patrick Fortin, one of my dedicated readers from Canada, has predicted I will hit a Shelby Miller Blue Sapphire Signature /50.  I am really hoping Patrick is right.  Let’s see if he called it tonight.  Here are today’s guaranteed 3 autograph hits:

Nik Turley BSAP-NTU, Oscar Tavares BSAP-OT, & Ryon Healy BSAP-RH

I am super ecstatic to get my first Oscar Tavares autographed card!  It will be interesting to see if he turns into Mini Vladimir Guerrero like most are predicting.  The Turley and Healy cards were nice hits as well.  I am biased because I would say every pack of Sterling is a YEAH pack.  Tonight is a SUPER YEAH for me with the Tavares hit.

Sterling, The Duel – Clayton Blackburn/Joc Pederson TD-BP

The pack also hit for a Blackburn/Pederson hit.  Toward the end of last season, Pederson’s name was being thrown around a lot.  He is a top prospect in the Dodgers Farm System, and was subject to plenty of trade rumors around the All Star Break.  At one point my Phillies were rumored to have interest in him.

What do you think of the Sterling hits?  My buddy, Scott, cracked open a box of Sterling this week.  So far it sounds like we have had almost an identical box with his hits shadowing mine.  Scott hit on an Austin Meadows, which I hope is waiting on me later in my box.

I talked with Sean over at Steel City Collectibles today.  He should have a coupon code ready for us all by Monday.  I am excited to get it posted on the main page for all of you to use.  I noticed Steel City has Bowman Sterling for a rock bottom price right now.  Check it out if you are looking for some nice cards that are guaranteed to hit.  Tell them Casey from Wax Cracker sent you if you order anything in advance of Monday’s code.

I am hoping to get a post from Sterling More for the upcoming Super Bowl.  Also, JVG is going through some comics from his large collection and may have a post for us all coming up.

Thanks for turning out in mass numbers for last night’s announcement!  Wax Cracker set a new record for visitors and page views last night.  Until tomorrow, go crack some wax and join in on the hits with me, everyone!
