Ready for some Super Bowl LI commercials? Get a start here …

puppymonkeybaby-super-bowl-ad-2016-billboard-650

You probably won’t see any sports cards in commercials during Super Bowl LI, but there will be plenty of collectors watching those pricey spots and Buzz will share some favorites here as they arrive during the game.

Biggest question on my mind first is … will PuppyMonkeyBaby make a triumphant return?

Which one is best? Be sure to tell Buzz what you think here or on Twitter. For now, here are the early highlights.

Super Bowl Commercial: Buick
Buzz’s Take: “If that’s a Buick, then my kid’s Cam Newton.” (Spoiler alert: Your kid won’t be winning the Super Bowl then … too soon?)

Super Bowl Commercial: Kia Niro
Buzz’s Take: Melissa McCarthy follows up her epic Sean Spicer SNL spot with a Super Bowl commercial where she shows you how “it’s tough to be an eco-warrior.”

Super Bowl Commercial: T-Mobile
Buzz’s Take: Gronk flexes his acting chops and Bieber tries to class it up (or something).

More to come if you keep reading — and more to come during the game, too.

Black November Wave 7 is here — and here are five deals to consider

2013pnperedraftrbb

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 7 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 Prizm Perennial Draft Picks baseball hobby box
Every box of this one includes four autographs, three inserts and six Prizm parallels — that’s not a lot and Panini America added more in subsequent Prizm releases but there are a couple of names that make this box notable at its reduced price. They are Kris Bryant and Mookie Betts and both of those MVP candidates can be found within the Prizm rainbow of autographs here. Others of note within these packs? Carlos Correa, Joc Pederson, Clint Frazier, Byron Buxton, Clint Frazier, Maikel Franco, Jose Abreu and Aaron Judge. The right rare shade here could be easy profits based on the box prices.

Sunday Night Superstars: Week 2 standouts include Cam Newton, Corey Coleman & plenty more

corey-coleman

The end result was the same old, same old for the Cleveland Browns, but how they got there wasn’t the same.

The quarterback looked good in the first half, the running game looked decent and rookie Corey Coleman made it look impressive early on. The rookie out of Baylor had only five catches, but they went for 104 yards and two touchdowns before the Browns browned as usual. Last week Coleman had just two catches but one was for 58 yards as part of a 69-yard day so we have seen so far that this former Baylor standout will be a receiver to watch this year when it comes to big plays that translate into big attention on cardboard.
