What’s Buzz-worthy: This retail-only product has long odds on some very good possibilities when it comes to autographs of notable players and there’s a shot at them in every single box. (Click here for a previous break and a checklist link.) This box? Not so much notable on that front, though it did include rookie reprints for Mike Trout, Buster Posey and Corey Seager and cards for legends such as Ted Williams, Roberto Clemente, Ozzie Smith and Rod Carew. This collector has ripped a few of these boxes with better autograph results than this (Did anyone want a Jose Vidro autograph when he was active?) but, hey, it happens.
