What’s Buzz-worthy: This release is a simple one with a base set with a handful of variations,  four insert sets, a set of autographs and a sets of memorabilia cards. This box delivered just as it should have — and actually had an extra autograph. This brand also is a very affordable one with a cost of less than $1 a pack in this instance, making it a fun way to try something from the company, which has been producing cards since 1992. A lone drawback found here is a byproduct of the bubble gum included in every pack. Some cards have black blotches on them from markings from the packaged gum, meaning you will have a few cards damaged in your set but a second box would be likely to solve that issue. i

    I believe this set had photo variant SP’s as well that fell around 1 per box, BlowoutBuzz may want to check those duplicate cards! I believe the BW logo was at a different location (top of card?) in the variations.

    I didn’t think I had any but I did re-check and found one with a “hobby” notation below the logo. Added to info and gallery.
