What’s Buzz-worthy: These small boxes carry big potential because of three names potentially found inside — Kris Bryant, Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger. They are far from the only names of note here (Jose Abreu, Gleyber Torres, Amed Rosario, Clint Frazier and Austin Meadows are others) and you get at least one auto and typically a USA Baseball jersey in each pack. Some of the big names signed plenty of cards in these packs — and there are a number of parallels, too — making these boxes potentially big deliverers with the right names. Sure, there are a lot of guys in these that didn’t pan out, but there is plenty of out of nowhere potential with the depth in this one. It’s worth a look if you didn’t take a look previously or want to chase those big names for a bit less than a full hobby box.
