What’s Buzz-worthy: The second series of cards for The Walking Dead for Season 4 is Cryptozoic’s final with the long-running license and this box shows the strengths of what’s been seen in the company’s releases — on-card autos and memorabilia along with a usually complete set and a small array of inserts. This is one of those rare boxes where the base set wasn’t complete, missing one card, but it made up for it with a strong auto and a pair of memorabilia cards that aren’t the standard stuff. (Well, maybe one of them is, the Terminus Resident cards seem a bit plain.) … The breakdown of inserts on this one was nearly identical to the Part 1 box so they are definitely consistent. … With good ink this was a fun box — but it can be topped as there are autos out there for Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln. Perhaps they’ll be in yours.
