I usually don’t buy but just one or two boxes of cards a year. I decided to go out and bust a box. Since I’m a cut autograph guy, I thought it would be fun to bust a cut autograph box. Well since I don’t have too much disposable income (like none), I decided to go cheap and I came up with what I think to be an excellent product for the money, 2008 TRIStar Signa Cuts Baseball.
Each box contains four packs and each pack contains one cut autograph. I got the box for $55, meaning that each autograph is just under $14 a card. That isn’t bad at all. Every player in the set has won some kind of award and many are Hall of Famers. Not only that but there are a lot of young prospects too (Evan Longoria and Elvis Andrus among others) I saw quite a few of these things busted on youtube and I have to say I’ve been pretty impressed.
Am I saying that each autograph is worth 14 bucks? Absolutely not! However there is always a shot at a Hall of Fame player. For $55 shipped I really couldn’t ask for much more. Even if it is a dud, it’s going to be fun to bust. Isn’t that what its all about anyhow?
What do you think? Is it a get or dump? Either way I’ll do a video of the box break when I get it.
