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.

On-card ink and plenty of RC autos drive 2017 Topps Archives Signature Series Active Player Edition

The arrival of 2017 Topps Archives Signature Series Active Player Edition baseball cards this week offers an interesting twist on the products that have been, relatively speaking, a fun rip in recent years.

The idea? A signed buyback card in every pack — except this time it’s today’s stars on cards from the recent past and on their Rookie Cards, a bit of a do-over with signed RCs or prospect cards for those who never had them.

Aaron Judge has a high-dollar 2013 Bowman Chrome auto with a full rainbow but this time his base card gets enhanced, stamped and encased and somebody will land that for the price of box. With 99 copies signed, it’s actually one card that’s very plentiful in this release– and yet one of them sold for $350 on eBay.
