What's Buzz-worthy: Buzz has had this one on the 12 in 12 tarmac for a few months now -- so much so there were actually desk dustbunnies forming on its stack -- but this is a strong box that packs a ton of talent and inserts ... just not a lot of variety. You get an insert in every pack here -- mostly Refractors (too many?) -- and an autograph isn't guaranteed in every box (basic ink starts at one in 62 though other inclusions likely make that lower). That makes these riskier for the price, though my finding this one cheaper than the norm is why you see it here. The design is strong, the lineup of newcomers is great -- a number of them were here between the inserts and base -- and the WWE roster itself seems a little stronger then than it is now. I bought a ton of this one at retail (despite long odds there) because of the non-guarantee odds on ink. There are some other possible inclusions here such as Turnbuckle Relics and King of The Ring Relics and Kiss Cards atop the Refractor rainbows that apply to everything. If you can find this one cheap, it's worth considering though most hobby boxes released recently guarantee autographs (as they should if you ask me).
