now, all fixed

LMK how many Griffey's total you get. I have an opportunity to buy some UD boxes and I'm wondering the ratio.

gritt81 01-27-2012 01:28 PM

That Griffey looks really good, I would grade that one.

NWOWOLFPACK 01-27-2012 01:29 PM

I'd like to know too! Thanks for sharing. I always appreciate a good mailday thread!

you have to be very careful in buying 89 upper deck wax. all the cards run in number order from pack to pack and can be "searched" easily to remove the 1st card (Griffey)

Very nice box. I've been wanting to rip some of this. I think you've inspired me to order some.

at least you will stay warm this winter with all of the .01 base cards you can turn into a bonfire

peafour 01-27-2012 02:28 PM

Was it 89 that had some super rare error card in it? Or am I misremembering? Nolan Ryan, maybe?

paid $60 for 2 Griffey's, a randy johnson rk and a few other decent hits... sounds like $$$ very well spent homes!

I'm going to use the base to build sets, I have every topps set since '79 and 12 UD sets

Got it, thanks guys. I really want to do this, but I don't have any more room for base, lol.

Nice job on your 1st box. I got hosed on my 3 boxes only pulling 1 Junior.

wow, I hope I didn't open the golden box already!

I bought these for a specific reason. My Dad's 50th birthday is next month and I am going to give him 2 of these.

When I was 7 years old, me and the old man would hit the LCS after baseball practice (he was my coach as well) and we were always buying single packs of 89 UD in search of the storied Griffey rookie.

One night in particular my old man shocked me and bought an entire box of 89 UD wax and I can remember this like it was yesterday. We sat in his '82 Corolla in the driveway of our house (so mom wouldn't see that he had bought an entire box!) and we opened up every pack with each other.... and we didn't hit a single Griffey.

So, with his 50th next month, I saw a thread about a guy who had purchased an 89 box of wax from blowout and it reminded me of the time I shared with my old man. So I quickly hopped over to Blowouts site and snagged the 3 boxes you see above.

And on my Dad's birthday, I plan on telling him to come out to the driveway and get in the car with me... and I will give him the 2 boxes and together we will break them, just like we did over 20 years ago.

So my point, I hope like hell I didn't ruin the moment by hitting the only Griffey's in the box I opened!!! Oh well, even if we don't hit one, I guess it will be fitting since we didn't on that night back in '89. Just making memories with Pop's is worth it.

You guys don't forget that that's what this is really all about anyway. I get caught up trying to make a buck from time to time too with this stuff!

Great idea man! That's cool
