What’s Buzz-worthy: I wasn’t planning to showcase any more of these breaks here — there have been a few — but the odds on the rare parallel card found in this one basically told me I have to. The Allegiances Black & White parallel found here? It’s a one in 2,166 pack find. That’s one in every 217 boxes, which is yet another crazy pull I’ve had from these Walmart boxes. The Allegiances inserts are also only found in Walmart boxes as are the Walker Relics so this box delivered there pretty well. This particular Relic has some thick and stained corduroy fabric that makes a simple card feel a little more deluxe. These boxes break down very consistently in terms of their volume, meaning you might be able to put things together with a box or two. With a guaranteed hit in every box — and a number of rare possibilities and not-the-norm finds like autographs, dual autos, triple autos, sketches, printing plates and more.
