If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices this weekend and for the next week or so over on the mothership and they were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of them.
So much so here’s another of a few “picks” to come in the next few days.
The pick this time? A box of 2016-17 Panini National Treasures College Basketball.
If you’ve ever wanted to try a high-end box without paying the full high-end price, this is one to consider while also remembering it’s all about stars in their college years. With some luck, you could land a card that pays for the box easily at its “Mega Sale” price and there are a number of hits per box that help add up to fun and maybe dollar-sign potential. It just depends on who/what you get. NBA legends’ autos — Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon and more — can be found here along with new rookies’ autos on a number of card types along with creative memorabilia cards and booklets. You might even find a Tony Gwynn game-used basketball card with a piece of a uniform from way back before he was a Hall of Famer in baseball. One of those alone will be a money-maker if you find one.
