What’s Buzz-worthy: Buzz isn’t a country music listener at all but this collector is a fan of finely tuned cardboard. This is that, though the bargain basement price may not make you think that. Check out the gallery for visuals on the highlights here — and click here if you want to see another break of this one. As long as it’s cheap and available, it’ll be something I rip chasing a variety of autographs. You get a hit in every hobby pack — at least two autographs per box but sometimes three. There are also multi-person autos and memorabilia cards in the mix but they are much-tougher pulls than the more standard stuff. My favorites are the Silhouettes, while autos of Miranda Lambert (rarer but not impossible pulls) will pay for a few boxes if you land one. These are fun to rip and are even cheaper on the retail/blaster front, though with tougher odds on ink.
