Now this is an interesting purchase. I bought a few things from Blowout Cards in December and did not purposely buy this. When I was looking in November, probably at the Black Friday deals, I added this pack to my cart but did not purchase it. Come December, it was still in my cart because I did not clear my browser history. When I made said purchase, all I looked at was if the total was off. Blowout Cards charges crazy shipping prices so a $3 addition was an easy oversight. I got this for $3.11 I believe, but they are currently on sale for $4.95. Let’s dive in:
Hmmm, a Ben Simmons rookie numbered to 50 and more importantly a C.J. McCollum numbered to 50.
Just kidding, I know what I have. What a great pull from something I paid so little for. Since I broke the USA box and pulled the Kris Bryant autograph, I have sense pulled a Judge rookie valued over $10 and this. Not too bad. I do need to flip this card as my car needs new tires so if anyone is interested, message me on Twitter – no trades.

A 1 autographed card per box product and only that card. I bought this from Blowout Cards in December for a shade over $5. Right now you can find these boxes in the $8 to $16 price range.
It was interesting to see Michael Floyd and Trent Richardson cards on the box as selling points.
A Courtney Upshaw autograph. He was an early 2nd round pick so this would have been a decent card at the time. It’s still not a bad card in my book, even with 1 currently being on sale for a buck.
If you come across a box under $10, it is worth a shot. Andrew Luck, Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles are in this set. Press Pass is also not a bad card company and I wonder how much of the value from the card is depressed because of the Press Pass name on it.

It was broken up into 4 mini packs/boxes.
How many limited Diamond Stone cards have a pulled? It feels like the card Gods have directed those cards to packs that I open.
The Thon Maker auto saved this box from having a dollar bin relic in every pack. I know that you never know with rookie based products but I was hoping for better. Individual cards for this product are amongst my favorite cards so I was hoping for a bunch of cards for my personal collection. I am in the boat of collectors that hate balls in cards so I was hoping for a decent ‘Tools of the Trade’ relic. You can’t win them all, and I have had good boxes recently. If you have $60 to $75 to burn then you might like this rip. If it was in the $50 range then I could see myself recommending this product.

Currently for sale on BlowoutCards for a whole $12.99. I think that I may have bought it for cheaper than that. I don’t know anything about the movie but I love a cheap fun box. Even if you don’t know any of the actors, there is always potential for a huge boom years down the line. Look no further than Meghan Markle being a throwaway autograph in the Fringe set and now being a $500 card. Now she is an extreme example but you get the point.
I was able to put together 2 full sets from this box. Take note other companies: Inkworks did this right.
Frances Conroy autograph. She has been in everything. I didn’t recognize her from the picture on the card but when I googled her, it was one of those: ‘oh her, cool’ moments. If anything, she might be the autograph that I want. She played Barney’s mother in ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ Take a look at her IMDB page, she has quite the impressive resume.
As for movie prop cards, I feel those are underrated. Every non-collector that I show prop cards to loves them. Considering most movies are on a tight budget, why not try to make money on things that will be trashed anyway? I come from a Hollywood family and I have seen my family throw away things that people will kill for. Heck I would do a lot for a prop from a movie like ‘Pulp Fiction’ or ‘Major League.’
Decent insert cards.
Overall, this box hit the mark. It made me interested in the movie. I had fun opening it. While I didn’t encounter any surplus value from the cards, I got what I wanted out of it. It did what these boxes should do. It is a nice fun break. I am not sure of this hit ratio on these boxes but even if it offers just one, it is worth the price.
