What’s Buzz-worthy: As said in a previous break here, this release is a landmark one for the genre of country music in the “hits” era of the hobby. There have been other sets for the genre — but not with ink and memorabilia. Hobby boxes have four packs with a hit in each, which makes the chase for some bigger names on autographs, including Miranda Lambert, who continues to sell very, very well on eBay, a bit easier. Or at least faster. Typical boxes are two autos and two memorabilia cards — and some of those are dirt cheap — but there are names such as Darius Rucker, LeAnn Rimes, Tracy Lawrence, Kimberly Perry, Sara Evans, Terri Clark and Wynona Judd that can make it worth a rip. In some cases, you can get as many as three autos — and that’s a plus now that you can sometimes land a whole box for less than the original price of a pack. The secondary market can be stronger than you think for this as these performers simply don’t have any other certified autographs in nearly all situations — even an American Idol winner like Scotty McCreery. The biggest highlight to this collector are the Silhouette autos and this box included one.
