What's Buzz-worthy: It's been a few months since I've ripped one of these -- it's a bargain go-to -- so here we go. ... These boxes are essentially a repack product with 60 past packs along with a pack of new cards made specifically for this release -- and that volume of stuff makes this an affordable go-to where it's appeared here a few times -- more than any other for BenchWarmer releases. There are some names of note in TV, movies and other aspects of pop culture that can be found here. There's plenty to rip and plenty of hits. This box? It was actually light on inserts and hits vs. other boxes I've seen ripped (I've seen close to 20 hits in some boxes) and they are only supposed to guarantee eight as part of the "new stuff." BenchWarmer has been around since the early 1990s and the explosion of autographs since then has really helped collectors find ink from names from around the pop culture world. You'll also find base cards of names from TV shows, movies and more here atop those who have stuck to merely modeling. These boxes include a number of early packs that don't pack a lot of hits -- yet I still landed one auto from those packs this time (it doesn't happen often). It's a fun rip as you never know what -- or who -- those past packs might include.
