Default Old School Break - 88 Fleer - 1 Box + 14 cello packs

Well it's time for another old school break. I've got a bunch of late 80's wax in the basement and every once in a while I feel like busting some real wax. I was out of collecting by 86 so most of these I never did the first time around. In fact I lost interest in baseball altogether. So players that I grew up watching had all moved on to other teams and were getting old. It's very odd.

Anyway, If anyone wants anything let me know. Any of the Mark Grace RC are spoken for already.

I have already opened the cello packs. The results are below. I'm working on the box as soon as I post this and will post the results immediately after.






Ok, here's the results of the box:

Glavine & Williams RC, but no Grace and no Edgar.




My consolation prize...

Found these in a box of doubles my dad opened 25 years ago!!!

Being in Seattle, I'm going to hang onto the Edgar's, but I have no attachment to the others. Will send PM.

Cards are cards. Should we call cards from the early 90's and before "PAPER" cards?

And it is nice to see someone who has been collecting before 2006.

Thanks for the reply's! Sometimes I'm not sure what to do with the wax boxes left. I don't know whether to sell them for next to nothing, or bust them and have even more extra cards sitting around. I probably have 40 boxes down there. I think I have 5 more 88 fleer. I would love to bust a box of 82 or 83. That was the height of my collecting as a kid. Chasing Ripken, Gwynn, Sandberg, Mattingly, etc.

This brings back memories, I remember buying packs at a card store in the flea market and selling the Jefferies for 6 bucks so I could buy more packs lol.

No. I believe it was .89c

Worth grading? Maybe. Personally, I have a hundred cards I would grade before them. The Edgar does go from $5 raw to $25 for a 10. According to the BOPG.
