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

2015pnprizmbb

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 8 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.

2015 Panini Prizm baseball hobby box
BryantYou won’t find as many packs in these boxes, but you’ll find two autographs and more than one parallel or insert card in nearly every single pack. The Prizm rainbow here is as strong as it gets and there are plenty of big names to be found among a young crop of signers and a number of big past names — Kris Bryant, Aaron Judge, Luis Severino, Corey Seager, Addison Russell, Joc Pederson, Steven Moya, David Price, Will Clark, Jose Canseco and plenty more. It’s not as cheap as it used to be as these boxes have heated up some but they’ll remain a fun option to rip as long as they are still around.

eBay Buzz: One big game, one big eyebrow … one big price for Anthony Davis?

s-l1600Maybe it’s the single eyebrow. Maybe it’s the chance at a pair of polo shirts. Maybe it’s just the oldschool Hornets logo.

Maybe it’s just because it’s Anthony Davis that this pair of cards — a duo of Panini America show promos limited to only 499 copies; the left being the first, the right being the last — is worth a look.

Why is this post here? Maybe it’s because of this asking price.
