97-98 Bowman's Best: Tons of Fun
 
Forgot how enjoyable openong packs just for 'fun' was.. Back before it was all about sooper mojozzzz.

This was loaded with key RC's and inserts.. In fact, oddly enough, some packs contained nothing but inserts. Collation was a b*tch as was the problem base cards somewhat stocking together.. But for 60 bucks a pop it won't be my last.

It was a blast. We should all bust one of these old school boxes every now and then to remind us how fun the hobby can sometimes still be... Sometimes :)

Nice break. I love the 90's breaks. They always look fun regardless of who you get.

I've bought 4 of these boxes over the past 2 years and they are quite fun to open. I hate that my atomic refractor cards are of no-name people. I think I, too, pulled Bryant Stith on at least one of my atomic refractors.

Plus, with this box, there is the possibility of getting some nice autographed cards like Karl Malone i believe in the regular, refractor, and atomic refractor versions.

Did a box of 98-99 Chrome and Finest today, more exciting than the new products to me. Where are you get your old boxes from?

I've been cleaning out a local shop who has tons of old wax. I've busted two 98-99 chrome and just got two boxes of 95-96 stadium club for $20. Well worth it for the fun. He's got a series two 96-97 finest I hope to buy with Christmas money! Great box btw!
