What’s Buzz-worthy: Both players whose autographs were in this box were NFL draft picks — that’s a plus as the ink is the major player here — but generally speaking this is a fun break and one that’s full of history, color and energy and one with a variety of players (past and present) and a good amount of insert cards. For a little more, and a look at another break, click here. This is a brand that’s worth a look at the blaster level and if you’re sold, a hobby box is a given as they deliver six autographs and more of the fun mix found here.
