As the hours pass by before Black Friday — the biggest day in the hobby — we wanted to get your attention and fill you in on what to expect over at BlowoutCards.com.
It’s there where we’ll be offering up the best deals in the hobby beginning at 6 a.m. Eastern Friday morning with Doorbuster deals that will make some of you very happy — and keep some of you hunting for the next round of big deals.
We’ve been readying for this event all year — and there have been Black November sale waves all month. And it’s here on The Buzz where we’ll have contests all day long where we’ll get hit-filled Buzz Boxes into the hands of collectors.
While this forum link is the key spot to know on Friday, you’ll also need to keep your eyes on these with a follow — BlowoutCards on Facebook and BlowoutBuzz on Twitter

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a number of boxes with discounted prices this weekend and for the next week or so over on the mothership and they were dramatic enough that Buzz had to sit down and ponder the possibilities in many of them.
So much so here’s the first of a few “picks” to come in the next few days.
As the reigning National League MVP and a member of the World Series champion Chicago Cubs, Kris Bryant is on top of the baseball world right now.
And that place in the game comes with signing a lot of autographs — and when it comes to baseball cards an exclusive deal to sign only for Topps’ products.
“It’s not too demanding for me. I feel like I’m kind of used to it now and I try to take the time for the fans to sign for every game and sign some autographs. My arm is used to it,” he said on Wednesday as part of an event held at MLB Network headquarters in Secaucus, N.J., to note the arrival of 2017 Topps Series 1. “Winning the world series and having the year that we did. All of this comes with that territory, and I wouldn’t have it any other way honestly.”
The biggest Chicago Cub in the hobby has the biggest autograph deal ever signed by Topps.
Kris Bryant has reportedly signed a seven-figure, exclusive autograph deal to only sign for Topps.It’s the biggest deal in Topps’ 65-year history of making baseball cards, which has only included certified autographs since the 1990s.
“We are beyond excited to secure this exclusive deal with Kris Bryant.” said David Leiner, VP and General Manager of North American Sports & Entertainment for Topps. “Never has The Topps Company executed such a long-term deal with any athlete. Kris is one of the elite players currently in Major League Baseball and we look forward to working with him as his career continues to flourish.”
Buzz is a collector who has to be selective — can’t collect everything but would want to — so that’s why a day like Black Friday can be important.
It’s a way to try stuff I normally wouldn’t or something I’ve always eyed but never done simply because the price is right.
Blowout’s Black Friday Doorbusters have been revealed and there are some serious bargains to be found along with the previous waves of Black November discounts on other brands beyond these. Keep reading for my picks on the deals that would get my attention first.
