I originally was not going to post this pack because it was pretty crappy and probably searched but after some encouragement from Andy of 78 Topps Cards fame who was dying to know the contents anyway but didn't want to watch the video, I figured I might as well put it here on apad for all to see. So here goes...
To watch the video of this pack break click here.
Upon opening there is a 26 year old cracked piece of ancient brittle gum.
305 - Don Sutton
The cards are in the pack backwards so Sutton has a big wax stain on the FRONT. Not a good sign that this is legit. Nevertheless I proceed on.
704 - Mickey Rivers
Great leadoff hitter for the Yankees and Rangers.
554 - Carlton Fisk All Star
Hey alright. Pudge!
99 - Barry Bonnell
792 - Frank Tanana
I always think it's cool to get the first or last cards of a set.
760 - Bill Buckner
740 - Dave Lopes
His facsimile auto says Davey which is how I always remember him.
690 - Dave Kingman
322 - Garry Hancock
Never heard of him. Some bummy outfielder for the BoSox.
489 - Rick Dempsey
47 - Jeff Leonard
Again, better known as Jeffrey Leonard.
628 - Bill Travers
384 - Keith Moreland
607 - Leon Durham
I thought this was his rookie at first but then I realized he had '81 cards when he came up with the Cardinals.
647 - Warren Brusstar
Never heard of him either but the back of his card said he won a game in the '80 NLCS for the Phils.
Well for $4.49 delivered I got my 15 cards, they are all mint, only the top and bottom card had stains, one from the wrapper, one from the gum, so I have no proof this was searched but something tells me it was. Oh well. I should heed my own advice and stick to cello and rack packs but I couldn't resist a shot for a Ripken. At least I think I had a shot. =)
