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 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.
