Topps always does Bowman Sterling right, and the 2007-08 basketball version is no different.
There is something about basketball cards that brings out the best in a set like this. The autograph
checklist is usually a little more fan friendly, which means that when you pull an autograph in each pack of
a high-end product such as this, you are running a solid chance of getting a name you know. And that is
what collectors really like more than any other bells and whistles.
I cracked open a pack of Sterling and, unsurprisingly, I was more than pleased. Two above average rookie
cards, a veteran relic of a possible MVP winner, a low numbered refractor of another rookie and a solid
autograph make this a pack that any fan would be happy with.
As is my custom, I won't assign a grade since it is less than half of the six-pack box. But I know it would be a very high grade if I
did assign one. Instead, let's just say that this is an outstanding product. Simple as that.......................
