Plus, did ALL these topper packs include rookie cards, or you can "find them" in certain packs? If so, then there are 50 Million boxes!! haha

I think the boxes were very limited, so just hard to believe.
Trust me, its right. I remember that product and I just used beckett to confirm what I thought. That's why 98/99 series 2 boxes are tough.

And its not 10,000,000 boxes. Do the math. 30 rookies x 4025 cards of each (2500, 1500, and 25 versions)= 120,750 cards inserted into box topper packs. you get 2 cards per pack. Thats 60,375 boxes. That's a very reasonable number.

So indeed RC's were inserted into both packs, and two cards per pack? So 4 RC's in every box? Wonder why they did it that way. Gonna check youtube to see if I find any box breaks.

So you're guaranteed 4 of the 30 rookies, but you might get a double...

A 1/1 RC wouldn't be bad

There is One 2 card pack as the box topper. So 2 SPX RCs per upper deck series 2 hobby box.

Yep. The rookies were all found in UD II 2 packs box toppers. You cant pull rookies from this box. Im sure kobe/Mj spectrums are decent hauls from this product along with those 1:360 force cards

Oh ok, thought you said 2 packs with 2 per...

Pretty rare I guess. The SP Authentic that same year came with 1 RC per box, unless of course you got yourself a hot box, which I haven't heard for that product. I personally opened a box of Sp Authentic and know for a fact that there was 1 RC per box, but my understand for the Spx was the same. Guess not. So sounds like the SP Authentic is much rarer to get your hands on a box? I think there are 30 RC's also, but no Radiance/1500... Wait, never mind lol, there are 2 RC's per box in SPX...

Anyway, yeah Will, I would definitely sell this box ASAP and get some nice cash to buy some singles.

You get 2 RCs per box in 1998-99 sp authentic (on average)

1 box of 1998-99 SP Authentic

http://www.sportscardforum.com/archi.../t-730665.html

You may have been shafted on your box. But you can't base everything off of seeing 1 box opened. If they were 1 RC per box, then they would have produced more boxes of SPA than regular Upper Deck, which would never happen.

Wow, how long ago did you pay $550? Hopefully around 2000 when the product was on fire. Boxes are around $130 now.

I think it was either 1999 or 2000. It was the only 1998-99 SP Authentic box in his showcase, that was the shitz!!! Back when PSA Gem 10's of Carter was selling for $3,000 and $4,000 LOL I remember the store owner mentioning to me that he got lucky and found a guy that would sell him a Carter Gem 10, and that it was going into his PC haha

I hope the same thing doesn't happen to cards today, when in the future they number RC's to just 25 copies, and include pieaces of GU afros! hahaha

This is 100% true and accurate.

There are no rookies in this box at all.

Yep! The 1998-99 Spx Finite box did not have any rookie at all. However you have a shot to pull the rare parallel of MJ, Kobe, Duncan, et al and it goes for big bucks.

Hopefully you can pull an extreme 1/1. Keep me in mind if you pull one and decide to sell it.

Here is my one and only extreme. Unfortunately its damaged.

SELL BOTH!!

Too much money to be made... most likely it'll be some cheap inserts. But, they're your boxes so good luck.

Agreed. Open both and then when you pull a monster 1/1 extreme, you can give Paul and I half for talking you into it

I'm liking this idea!!!


50% is a bit much, but at least when you pull the MJ 1/1 we should be entitled to 10% for swaying your decision
