Booya! Some Bowman Value Pack Braves

I had a few minutes Friday night between dinner and meeting my wife and kids at their school for the middle school/ high school program that my son was participating in. Needing to pick up some new windshield wipers for my car, I decided to stop by my least favorite place on earth, Walmart. Normally I would just stop by Autozone to pick up such a need, but Walmart is about a minute's drive from the pizza joint we dined at and about a minute from their school. Plus, Autozone doesn't carry cardboard- and I have been having an itch to open some packs. My backscratcher: 2013 Bowman Value Packs.

The Value Packs I picked up each contained 3 regular packs plus one cello pack, and the first of the two that I opened provided an immediate sense of euphoria. Without having opened up any of the actual packs, I knew immediately that I would be adding at least one Brave to my collection. The top card in the cello pack of purple parallel's was of Jose Peraza- a shortstop for low-A Rome. Peraza is a soon-to-be feature on this blog, so I'll delay saying anything about him other than I'm very excited about his future. The other two purple parallel's in this pack were Kansas City's Corey Hall and Toronto's Tyler Gonzales.
