If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com’s Black November Wave 10 hits today.
2013 Panini Beach Boys hobby box
This box is admittedly probably off the radar of many collectors but that doesn’t mean that it can’t deliver. In fact, these can deliver well if you pull the right ink. This Brian Wilson card here? It sold for more than you might think and he’s not alone when it comes to autos in there that have topped the $100 mark. Like the Panini Country release, there are non-traditional collectors chasing cards here to build sets or chase stuff they like with no regard for what something “should” cost based on what it is or its scarcity. Meanwhile, they may not know where to buy boxes — or not want to. Those things can lead to some surprising results — and that’s not the only surprise. Check out the price on this box.
2016 Topps The Walking Dead Season 5 hobby box
Topps’ first release for its new license for the hit TV show includes a combination of two autographs or Relics per box and there are a number of parallels that can help the value of a box break here. All of them help recap Season 5 and there are autographs of some iconic characters here, including ink from Daryl Dixon — aka Norman Reedus — though via redemption. A lower price on a recent release can’t hurt if you’re chasing rarities here.
2014 Panini Prizm baseball hobby box
You’ll only find 12 packs here but you’ll find plenty of variety and star power with two autographs in every box (one with an on-card auto), six Prizm parallels and at least three numbered inserts. Also in here will be USA Baseball cards, Rookie Reign and Diamond Dominance inserts along with as many as four more inserts atop that. The auto checklist here in a strong one with Mike Trout, Manny Machado, Jose Fernandez, Buster Posey, Clayton Kershaw, David Ortiz, Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Pete Rose, George Brett, Mariano Rivera, Ken Griffey Jr., Cal Ripken Jr. and Chipper Jones all among the possibilities.
2016 Panini Flawless Soccer hobby box
Buzz will be one of the first to admit that the action over on the pitch isn’t among my collecting focuses but there’s something to be said when the most high-end brand gets a discounted price. Each of these briefcases includes six autos, two memorabilia cards and two gems — and the possibilities for legendary names in today’s game, which is a global one, to be found.
2007-08 Fleer Hot Prospects basketball retail box
Want a bit of a turn-back-the-clock pick? How about this one, which is a place to chase Rookie Cards of Kevin Durant back in his Seattle SuperSonics threads. You’ll find one hit per box since this is retail but the sale price helps make that chase a bit easier to dig in on hard.
