What’s Buzz-worthy: Nearly a decade ago, Razor arrived on the scene offering an autograph in every pack for those collecting prospects and new draft picks of that time. While the crop included a ton of exclusive signers (see list in gallery below) not that many of them ultimately panned out. One exclusive who did was Matt Wieters and others of note in the product (not necessarily exclusives) included Buster Posey, Giancarlo Stanton, Brett Lawrie, Brandon Crawford, Lonnie Chisenhall and Eric Hosmer. This box didn’t include ink from any of those names but an auto per pack still makes for a decent rip when it comes to fun. If you land a Posey or Stanton, you probably pay for your box but many of the autos found here (and most all in this box) aren’t pricey at all. If you want a cheap rip with plenty of ink and a reasonably affordable collecting project, this is one to consider.
