Black November Wave 5 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 5 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. (And this wave was so big that there could easily be five more … check it out.)

2016 Panini Absolute Football retail Premium Box
At this sale price, this one is definitely worth checking out since last year’s rookie crop is stacked and this one includes two exclusive hits — one blue auto and one blue memorabilia card — in every box. This one is a simple retail take on a memorabilia-focused favorite of mine and there could be even more retail-only colors found in boxes, too. If those are big names such as Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott — or any of the other newcomers that are making a mark — you’re way ahead with this price. Either way, it’s a fun rip — and you can grab it by the case, too. 

Keep reading for a few more picks among this newest wave.

See a NAR! sketch card come to life

NARIf you’ve collected non-sports cards in the last decade or so, then you know just how interesting a good sketch card can be. They come in all media and subjects, but they all have one thing in common.

Buzz was buzzing around Facebook today and found this image of a work in progress by Julio Nar, aka NAR!, who has created some of the most-detailed sketch cards in the hobby. The card above is all hand-inked with various passes to add detail and color.
