Do you like Buzz Breaks? Today’s your day then as we launch 12 in 12 — a series of a dozen breaks of past wax boxes and wax packs in a dozen hours. We’ll post one every hour on the hour all day long today … this is Hour 8.

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.

The Upper Deck Gallery‘s latest release features one of the more iconic films of recent years with two versions for collectors to choose from.
This time, the film is Kill Bill and a pair of prints by artist Krista Timberlake are the latest creation from the company in a series of pieces featuring past films and comic book characters.
“I’ve always been a great admirer of Quentin Tarantino‘s films, and Kill Bill Vol. 1 is way up there on my list of favorites,” Timberlake said. “The film has a ton of tough chicks with complex character development, fabulous one-liners, hysterically funny and cringe-worthy gratuitous violence bits, the best-choreographed fight scenes ever and a stellar soundtrack.”
Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film, The Hateful Eight, may rank near the bottom of the legendary director’s box-office totals, but the cast of eight memorable characters in the violent and frigid Western film just might be heating things up soon.

The Upper Deck Gallery‘s latest offering includes some of the most-iconic characters in recent film history as part of a montage print for a film that would carry the same gravitas.
The film is Pulp Fiction and a pair of prints by artist Dave Perillo are the latest creation from the company in a series of pieces featuring past films and comic book characters.
“I was super excited for the opportunity to work on this project for the Upper Deck Gallery, especially since Pulp Fiction is one of my all-time favorite movies,” Perillo said. “It is such a fantastic story filled with so many unique characters. I love how the movie has a retro quality to it without really specifying when it takes place. My goal was to translate that into the print, hopefully doing it justice.”
