An assortment of cards pored over and picked up

The idea I'd only put aside $20 to spend on some loose packs or a jumbo pack of 2018 Bowman meant - I knew I had no realistic opportunity of sniffing any of the new Bowman flagship product at a card shop.

A day after release, I'd overheard the store owner say he was wiped out and from what I understood - you basically had to be on a list, to be able to purchase whatever 2018 Bowman [boxes] the shop had in reserve.

As is, I made do with what I usually do, rummaging through some of the loose cards in boxes and maybe left on counters - just to see what I could take home for the day.

2018 Donruss Matt Olson #21 - Diamond Kings; the only reason I picked up this card was it’s actually Ryon Healy pictured and it’s an uncorrected error.
