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.

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 10 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.
2013 Panini Beach Boys hobby box
This box is admittedly probably off the radar of many collectors but that doesn’t mean that it can’t deliver. In fact, these can deliver well if you pull the right ink. This Brian Wilson card here? It sold for more than you might think and he’s not alone when it comes to autos in there that have topped the $100 mark. Like the Panini Country release, there are non-traditional collectors chasing cards here to build sets or chase stuff they like with no regard for what something “should” cost based on what it is or its scarcity. Meanwhile, they may not know where to buy boxes — or not want to. Those things can lead to some surprising results — and that’s not the only surprise. Check out the price on this box.
