Cheap Wax Wednesday Box Breaks: 2015 Panini Americana

I know, I know. I told you that football breaks would start this week. Change of plans. I have had this box sitting around for quite a while and thought it would make sense to sandwich an entertainment product between the two sports seasons. So, here we are. 

2015 Panini Americana features a 73-card base checklist. It is full of actors, musicians, athletes, comedians, and pretty much anyone else who could fall under the pop culture umbrella. Considering that this product is now eight-years old, it will be interesting to see who is still relevant. This product also features a bevy of inserts, which include autograph and memorabilia cards. Almost everyone featured in the base checklist has an autographed card in this product. There are some big entertainment names including Al Pacino, Biz Markie, Coolio, Hulk Hogan, Sylvester Stallone, Kevin Hart, Bradley Cooper, and James Earl Jones, to name a handful!

I am not really sure what to think as this is definitely not something that is up my alley. There were a fair amount of celebrities in here that I had never heard of, but maybe I am just too far out of my element with this one. The potential for big-name autographs is absolutely there in this product, I just didn’t happen to find them in this box.

Next week, back to sports.

    Are you missing a few digits on the price paid?
    The box you opened was a hobby box. Those still sell for HUNDREDS of dollars. A 24 pa k retail box can be found for under $100 (with 1 hit)…but $23 is a STEAL unheard-of deal for the retail box.
    I get the idea of a cheap break post, but a few hundred $ isn’t cheap to most people and it’s definitely not $23.
