You should pull like 3 or more on card autos. Some of them are good to great, most of them are blah.

If you get a big thrill out of opening autographed cards, no matter if it's Alex Ovechkin or Alec Martinez, go for it. As a general rule I only open this product if I'm buying five or more boxes as when you whiff, you can whiff big. This is one of my favorite products as I've broken over a hundred boxes of it and hit plenty of crazy stuff but it's pricey and many boxes are duds. This years' product is the best in many years though with more autos and goodies on a per box basis than the previous five years.

This is the best set for autographs.

Once in a while I'll see someone open a box and get like 10 autographs in one box...happened to me once. One of the cards was a six-signed card of all Maple Leaf HOFers.
