Flashback Product of the Week: 2000 Bowman Reserve

2000 Bowman Reserve was an interesting product.  There were 10 packs per box, 5 cards per pack, with a guaranteed autographed rookie mini helmet, veteran autograph and memorabilia card per box.  Products such as this never really caught on with collectors and only lasted a few years.  I think card companies realized that people buy boxes to get cards and not mini helmets.  After 2000, Topps got rid of the Bowman title and called it Topps Reserve.    I don’t really have anything negative to say about this product.  They just didn’t appeal to a lot of collectors.  I opened a box of 2002 Topps Reserve and enjoyed it.  I pulled a Gale Sayers autographed Chicago Bears mini helmet.
