What’s Buzz-worthy: The Walking Dead hits retail? Apparently so and there’s a hit in every box and exclusives depending on where you buy. If you buy at Walmart where this box was found, there are exclusive walker Relics and Negan-walker dual Relics. You’ll also land autographs one in every 25 boxes and printing plates one in every 5,133 packs. The hits are packed separately from the main packs which ultimately do just include basic inserts and parallels along with the plates. Negan Relics are one in every 10 boxes and there are a ton of other possibilities. The Target boxes aren’t as generous with autographs one in every 1,167 boxes but other hits possible. Their exclusives are standard In Memorium inserts. The base set is a simple one with an array of parallels but only one type was found in this box. The inserts also delivered as expected with no surprises. If you’re a fan of the show, the Walmart boxes will be one to consider — and this is one to consider no matter where you’re at if you don’t have access to a hobby shop selling the standard boxes that deliver an autograph every time. Check out those odds … and then check out the card aisle.
