From time to time, we’ll spotlight a box or case that seems like a buzz-worthy bargain right here from BlowoutCards.com.

Bargain Bonuses: What makes this one a compelling rip? The deep possibilities between the two series. Moya is among the top home run hitters this spring, while Yelich, Sano, Buxton and Polanco more are guys who have made a mark or are getting close. There’s depth in these lineups along with a heavy amount of parallels atop a premium feel and a striking look for cards that are player-licensed. They’re also on-card autos here. With an autograph in every pack, this is one that has a bit of fun, a bit of volume and a bit of potential. At a fraction of the original price, this one is one to rip for fun and see what happens. With some parallel luck, you could do pretty well, too. … For Series 1, there were just 175 cases made and all base cards were numbered to 300 copies.
