Product: "The $25 Box" of sports collectibles.
Tagline: "The contents of this box are for sale at anytime for $25. (but don't wait too long, this box always moves fast!!!)"
Available at: House of Cards, 900 Silver Spring Ave., Silver Spring.
Why you might want it: You like posting items on eBay and you need to replenish your inventory quickly. You like buying in bulk. You like taking a gamble on the value of a box of random sports collectibles. Who knows, maybe that baseball autographed by some unidentifiable baseball player is actually worth something?
How it works: Manager Ricky Huggins says they are constantly filling the box with random items, some of which are donated to the store, until someone buys it. Usually the sum total of all the items is worth more than $25 as they do put some worthwhile items in there.
"We like to give people chances," Huggins says.
