What's Buzz-worthy: With the arrival of 2018 Donruss, you may see these boxes from last year popping up in discount bins. Why are they worth a look? There's either an autograph or a memorabilia card inside them every time and among those players is Aaron Judge. We didn't land him this year but we have pulled him from these in the past. You can also find his standard cards and plenty more on the variations and insert front as this box indicates. It's worth the rip if it's cheap -- and it's even cheaper while it's in stock here now (at the link) compared to retail card aisles. Buzz busted these boxes heavily last year and they're worth ripping into now, too.
