busting -- I bought them to open them. So far...nothing worthwhile.

If possible, I would love to see scans. Are most in good condition?

Cards are in really good condition -- some normal issues with older cards (wax/gum marks) -- maybe one or two would grade really well. Some others are close, but lots of centering issues.

Not bad! I'll bet that was a fun break for a change. I have a 1975 Topps set and I've been wanting to try a couple of packs just for fun. I'm sure some of the cards could be upgrades to what I have now.

The problem with packs from then is that those wax packs can easily be opened and re-sealed. I'd have a difficult time trusting when only buying a couple of packs.

I completely agree. They were part of a group break -- all the packs were sold from unopened boxes. The boxes all came from a trusted source for vintage, so, I'm not worried about the resealing. It can happen, but that's the risk you take. (or I took)

I'd like to eventually open a pack of every major vintage issue. I'm working my way back slowly (still haven't opened 77 or 79).

Nephinfan: the 75s I got were probably the nicest of the bunch as far as centering and corners -- a couple a really nice.

Yeah, most of those '75s look pretty nice. How many cards were in the pack? For some reason, I was thinking there were only 9 per pack, but think I saw 10 in your scan.

After looking at the cards and the players, brought back memories of sitting on the couch, watching the black and white tiny television, getting up to change the channel, turn up the volume, adjust the antenna. And I remember doing it because I was a kid who enjoyed watching a baseball game. Seeing those nice cards, even though not the superstar players, is great.

I was excited at first, and was going to ask if there were any more GBs like that. Then JLZ crushed my hopes with a very obvious observation. Lameskis
