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.

Willie Nelson couldn’t wait to get on the road again, going places he’d never been and seeing things he may never see again.
And we’re pretty sure he never saw this.
It’s a 2008 Donruss Americana Celebrity Cuts Materials Prime card and a small number of them have been pulled via BlowoutTV recently with a detail that many people might have missed.
What is it? Well, this is card No. 97 in Celebrity Cuts and a look at card No. 96 on that checklist as well as the autographed version of this card offer some clues … keep reading.

If you’re a movie or music fan, there’s plenty to collect — but you may not have seen items like the ones found in Garageland.
Take for instance the Star Warhol Series — a lineup of prints that mesh the iconic worlds of Star Wars and Andy Warhol. The Campbell’s Soup can is R2-D2 above, for example, while the pop artist’s famed style is also seen in other pieces from the Los Angeles-based company founded by a street artist known as Xray back in 2010.
Movies aren’t the only pieces to be found as there are also concert posters to be had, too.
