If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices now over on the mothership as BlowoutCards.com’s Black November Wave 3 hits today.
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 that caught this collector’s eye.
2009 Topps Mayo football hobby box
Buying older football boxes can be tough at times as players can come and go quite quickly, but, then again, so did this brand — but there aren’t many sets like it. It’s retro-styled football in the realm of Allen & Ginter with some downright unusual inclusions. Example? It’s the home of a Tim Kaine “Rookie Card” — perhaps notable to some collectors out there since we’re so close to Election Day. Mayo was only around two seasons, and it includes non-traditional autographs and Relics along with a decent mix of big football names. (The big names remain big but the rookies may not be.) For the price this one’s got potential and it’s bound to be very, very different than other NFL brands out there — no matter who you pull.
