I found this pack in a box full of miscellaneous junk. My 1988 Topps cards are housed in an 800-count box that looks to be about 9/17 full. As I open the pack, I’ll check which cards I need. I’m considering five cards needed from this pack a success.
Let’s tear in.
Top to Bottom:
417 Mark Ciardi (Got it.)
182 Ken Phelps (Got it.)
250 Nolan Ryan (NEED IT!)
68 Dave Dravecky (NEED IT!)
327 Larry Sheets (Got it.)
518 Greg Gross (NEED IT!)
751 Jim Morrison (NEED IT! One more, and this is a successful pack.)
607 Mickey Hatcher (NEED IT! WOO-HOO!)
723 Bob Kipper (NEED IT! GRAVY!)
659 Bobby Meacham (NEED IT! ICING ON GRAVY!)
330 Eddie Whitson (Got it.)
112 Les Lancaster (NEED IT! COOL WHIP ON ICING ON GRAVY!)
323 Rick Leach (Got it.)
240 Lee Smith (Got it.)
34 Ricky Horton (Got it.)
Okay, 53.3% is an outstanding hit rate.
Full disclosure: I still haven’t completed a single set of any brand from 1988.
