What’s Buzz-worthy: Picked this one up in the bargain bin for half price and, like a previous rip of this brand, was pleasantly surprised by this box with it including two inserts numbered to 99 copies and then a rarer autograph of a younger driver who has most of his autographs in this release. Just like the previous box, nothing found here will break the bank or rev things up into the red on eBay, but it definitely felt good for less than $10. Plus, this brand includes three packs to give you a little more cardboard than some others on the blaster front. If you find these at the sub-$10 level, they should be an instant rip just in case one includes something big — it seems like there are plenty of possibilities here just as we’re working our way toward the first 2018 wax.
