What’s Buzz-worthy: You might find these blaster boxes in discount bins and they should be worth a look, despite there not being anything but 32 cards guaranteed inside. Why? Unlike other Topps WWE blasters that assure you a hit but nothing of that type inside anything but the bonus pack, these boxes do include higher-end cards at higher odds. Inside these blasters are Superfractors (one in 2,800 packs), printing plates, autographs (with parallels), dual autos, Kiss Cards and Kiss Card autos, Relics (both clothing and ring mats) and manufactured Relics. Many of these cards can be found with parallels as rare as one copy — and they can all be found in these blasters. They aren’t easy (as high as one in 75,000 packs) but they are in there. … Buzz bought this box on a whim since it was discounted and remembered why he didn’t buy much — it’s a dry rip — but a Refractor of The Rock and the first Chrome WWE card for future champ Sasha Banks (definitely looks like a pre-BOSS rookie) helped make this one a decent box. The NXT set is a cheap one to chase — and it’s got some key names in it. If you get lucky, these boxes can be a fun rip at their discounted price. For a safer rip, just grab a hobby box — but don’t expect a lower price on those with their guaranteed hits inside every box.
