What's Buzz-worthy: This one delivered more Rookie Cards than my previous blaster but overall the same number of inserts and short-prints. My hit wasn't quite as solid (Kobe last time) but this one included at least one rookie of note and perhaps a bigger name among the parallels. Oddly, I've found Robert Parish to be Dominating in all three boxes I've opened this year. (I haven't looked for more locally, figuring they're gone.) ... As said before, the power of Prizm is strong with many -- the first store Buzz had checked was cleared out, while a second had eight blasters and six mega boxes, a lot that can have some interesting asking prices on eBay from those who did clear a shelf. ... As for the chase, particularly for key rookies like Luka Doncic, you can get Silver, Green, Purple Wave and Green Pulsar (/25) here. That last one along with jersey cards are only found in blasters so the right name can be a win easily at suggested retail price. It's not an easy hunt, but it's not too painful if you miss at this price -- and some blasters can contain rookie autos and she solid up-side.
