Default 1986 Fleer Basketball 1 pack break

First off I know I am going to get blasted for this as I do not have a pic of the cards, I am just too lazy to do it.

I bought 1 pack of these off eBay, assumed that it was probably either already searched or just no legit altogether. Picked a seller that looked legit though and ended up winning the pack.

I wasn't sure whether to open it or not, ended up cracking it on Tuesday night. First card Randy Whittman, then Bernard King, then a couple I can't remember, Clark Kellogg (at this point I thought I JUST missed Jordan), then 2 cards later was a Jordan rookie. I have a beatiful set I have worded on for many years, have never opened a single pack though. Pretty cool to pull my favorite card on my own, on my first try!

The corners were obviously great, centering is always an issue, this pack also had the machine dent on the right hand side of each card. The damage on the MJ wasn't too bad, would have been cool though to pull a perfect card. I can't complain though as I got extremely lucking pulling a Jordan considering all the issues with getting legit unopened packs of this product.

Blast me for no pics if you want, I just wanted to share a cool story. My user ID on ebay is ndestrucktable if you want to verify that I bought a pack last week.

No problem, what is your email, I will send a couple pics tonight. I haven't ever done pics on here before, if you are cool with posting them for me I will get some tonight. I don't break much product, have always wanted to break something from 1986 Fleer.
Thanks!

you cant post a pic of the card but you want to email it? that doesnt prove anything, you can easily take pictures off of the internet and send them via email....how about taking a scan of the card with your blowout name with it to show its legit but nice going if you did pull it and its not a fake

its not brain surgery, my first time here I didnt even have to ask...go into your original post click edit, click advanced...go down to attachments find your file through there on your computer and upload it...bammm..we have a picture...but make sure to put your blowout name on a piece of paper with it and make sure your picture is smaller than 97.7kb

Cool, that is easy enough, just have never gotten that far into looking into it, I don't open much stuff so have never had a reason to post much. I will post the pics in a few hours. Thanks for your helP!

Nice Pull, I'd be stoked. I still want one of these for my PC and came close to getting one here locally but spent the $$ elsewhere. I also recommend imageshack. Pretty good step by step directions in the FAQ section as well.

I can't agree with you more, I was really stoked, never thought I would pull one. I have been a lifer Jordan fan, have had a bunch of Jordan rookies, have never pulled one though as I was too young to buy them when they were cheap, too poor to buy them when they were expensive. Finally broke down and bought a pack and nailed it on the first try!

I promise pics tonight as some point, thanks to everyone for all the help! I love ready the break posts, don't open much stuff so it is fun to see what else everyone else is always getting.
