Got $5? Blowout has a box for you as two Doorbusters dropped early

You don’t have to wait until Black Friday for the BlowoutCards Doorbusters to have a jaw-dropper.

There’s one of those dropping today — in fact, it’s available right now — as you can land a box of 2014 Topps Turkey Red football cards for less than $5. (No, really, go look. We’ll wait.)

As we’ve documented here before on The Buzz, every box of this one includes a rookie autograph — and there are some rarer autos that are tough pulls guaranteed to fetch more than $5. Atop that, there are a number of variations that are also tough pulls. Check out the link for all the past details. 

It’s not the only early Doorbuster, either.

Bargain Buzz: Scouting the Blowout Black Friday Doorbusters

Buzz is a collector who has to be selective — can’t collect everything but would probably want to — so that’s why a day like Black Friday is important.

It’s a time for me to try stuff I normally wouldn’t — or try something I’ve always eyed but never done simply because the price is right.

Blowout’s Black Friday Doorbusters have been revealed and there are some serious bargains to be found along with the previous waves of Black November discounts on other brands beyond these. Keep your eyes on this forum link to get the latest of what’s been unleashed on Friday — and what’s back in stock, too.

Keep reading for my picks on the deals that would get my attention first once those Friday prices kick in — and then check out the full list here to see the prices.

BlowoutCards.com Beach Boys sale offers good vibrations for collectors

Wouldn’t it be nice to own autographs from members of an iconic American band?

That’s a lot easier than you might think for The Beach Boys — in fact it can be guaranteed — thanks to BlowoutCards.com‘s newest Black November sale wave. It’s a prelude of sorts for what’s to come with Black Friday next week, but for fans of this band there’s no beating this one.

It’s the Pet Sounds of sales. It’s fun, fun, fun … and more.

As part of the sale, boxes and cases of Panini America’s 2013 Beach Boys card set should give you some good vibrations after you do some simple math. You typically get two autographs per 20-box case with five possible signers — Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston or David Marks. Each of them signed an equal total of 350 cards. The Wilson card you see here? It went for $270 on eBay — and it’s not alone as a strong seller.

Now, how much are those cases or boxes? (That’s not a typo.) And the original prices on these boxes was originally $72, meaning those cases were originally $1,435 a pop.

Now pick up your jaw and keep reading to learn more about what’s in this one.

Black November Wave 8 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 8 is here — and it’s a huge “mega wave” of more than 170 products — and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2011 Wheels Element hobby boxes (and cases)
Chase Elliott is an established young star in NASCAR these days but back when this one arrived he was one of the “Undiscovered Elements” newcomers who got the nod for their first card appearances and first autographs. Elliott, the son of Hall of Famer and former Cup champ Bill, was just 15 at the time. He signed two cards in this release — a standard limited to 225 copies and a red-ink version limited to 25. Atop this, he didn’t have any other ink until 2014 when he arrived with a hot start that included a pair of NASCAR victories before he had even graduated from high school. At that time, his autos were easy $100 bills and people paid as much as $500 for the Red. They’ve settled down now — and he’s got plenty of ink since — but these are still the first and among the most-unique cards he’ll ever have. (There’s a Rookie Card in the standard set, too.) There are plenty of other highlights here but this one’s the closest thing to awesome … at least that’s what some guy named Bill from Dawsonville said.

Keep reading for more from this weekend’s big wave.

Black November Wave 7 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 7 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2013-14 Panini Prestige NBA wax boxes and cases
This isn’t a high-end brand but it’s one that packs two autographs and two memorabilia cards in every box with roughly 20 insert cards, too. The key here? Giannis. His autographs are in here. His Rookie Cards are in here. He’s such a big deal, he doesn’t even need his long last name mentioned here. (Yes, I can spell it … Antetokounmpo.) If you land his auto, it can pay for at least a third, if not half of the case. This is a brand where you can also land the likes of Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant ink (among others) and there’s plenty of stuff in there — especially if you go with a volume buy with the low sale price.

Black November Wave 6 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 6 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2016-17 Panini Threads NBA hobby boxes & cases
Threads is a simple formula but it’s a comfortable one with two hits per box — one autograph and one memorabilia card — and a feel that’s more deluxe than, say, NBA Hoops but still with some of the basics that give it a good collectable feel. (Check out this past break.) You can land ink from the likes of Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony here along with ink from the rookies, too. The memorabilia cards can include Hall of Famers, too, like that past break does, helping offer some extra scope for a price that’s now pretty low. It’s worth a rip for sure and it leads off this round of picks from this collector.

Keep reading to see more picks from this wave.

Black November Wave 5 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 5 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye. (And this wave was so big that there could easily be five more … check it out.)

2016 Panini Absolute Football retail Premium Box
At this sale price, this one is definitely worth checking out since last year’s rookie crop is stacked and this one includes two exclusive hits — one blue auto and one blue memorabilia card — in every box. This one is a simple retail take on a memorabilia-focused favorite of mine and there could be even more retail-only colors found in boxes, too. If those are big names such as Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott — or any of the other newcomers that are making a mark — you’re way ahead with this price. Either way, it’s a fun rip — and you can grab it by the case, too. 

Keep reading for a few more picks among this newest wave.

Black November Wave 4 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 4 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2016 Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball hobby box
You may not recognize the uniforms here but they’re creative — and wearing them are names you should know with guys like Aaron Judge, Cody Bellinger and Rhys Hoskins on the checklist. The crop of players here is pretty strong and so is the signers list in a product that takes the 1967 Topps design back to the minor leagues. Atop the signers list that includes Dansby Swanson, Andrew Benintendi, Alex Bregman, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout for starters, they’re all on-card autographs here. A couple of boxes should get you a basic base set and a number of the inserts that this one includes. It’s a simple but fun break and you can see a sample box here.

Keep reading for four more picks …

Black November Wave 3 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 3 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2016 Panini National Treasures racing hobby box
This one is as high-end as it gets for NASCAR and includes a few notables from beyond stock cars, too, making this bargain price even sweeter. Every box includes a book and has five other hits along with a base or parallel card — and it’s one that this collector has dug in on pretty hard via BlowoutTV group breaks. Check out that story here and then check out the price on this one. (There are cases, too.) Land the right names with some rarer memorabilia or ink combos and your box is covered. Even without the dollar signs in mind, this one is a fun rip with its stacked checklist that’s rich in stars from the past and present.

Black November Wave 2 is here … and here are five deals to consider

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices right now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com is in the midst its Black November sales now.

Wave 2 is here and many of the discounts were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of the boxes and cases — and here are five boxes/cases that caught this collector’s eye.

2017 Topps Update Jumbo boxes and cases
This relatively new release is simply a fun one that’s stacked with Rookie Cards and moments from the All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. This collector has ripped hanger boxes, blaster boxes and standard Hobby boxes and many of them have delivered good volume on those guys named Bellinger, Judge and even on the variations. (They don’t have to be rare to be fun.) I haven’t studied the jumbo breaks closely, but one auto and two other hits at this price makes for a fun rip — and if you get lucky you could do pretty well. While this might be a brand that seems somewhat plentiful now, once wax dries up there will be enough key players here to make it of interest later — and basic Topps flagship RCs seem to be growing in popularity, too.

2015 Bowman’s Best baseball hobby box
There are more than a few Bowman boxes up for grabs with lower prices as part of this wave — the first of several to come between now and Black Friday — but this one has a pretty strong discount (limit eight boxes per person) and potential. The mini-box format allows you to share a box with someone else if you want, too, with each half-box including six packs and and two autos. Among the signers here? Carlos Correa, Kris Bryant, Dansby Swanson, Rafael Devers, Mike Trout, Andrew Benintendi, Bryce Harper, Byron Buxton and many others. You can do very well here with a little luck.
