What’s Buzz-worthy: All 48 episodes from two seasons of the show have their shot at cardboard in this 72-card that that’s heavy on moments but light on description for one of TV’s top shows. Not all top members of the cast signed on for this one, but this box was a highlight with one of the biggest names in the brand, deadpan comedy legend Bob Newhart, found on the ink along with one other auto and two memorabilia cards — one being a 1:96-pack dual. The stated odds on autos and memorabilia are both one in 15 packs, so this box delivered more than it should have. … The box included complete sets of all inserts (except the silver parallels) as well as a complete set, giving the collector everything they are looking for when it comes to non-hits. … Autographed memorabilia cards and two types of standard autos (horizontal or vertical) help offer some variety as well. All in all, this was a good box from a brand that has a lot of possibilities inside with everything from wardrobe memorabilia of all top cast members to other props such as model train felt and even triple/quad wardrobe cards. This was a strong box but, realistically, there could be even stronger ones out there.
