Packs & Older Cards FTW

This T206 Bransfield has become a staple for the series...notice the blue Piedmont back:

A real beauty! 

Collectors love to open packs because of the thrill of discovering huge hits inside! 

Here's a Jeter Donruss rookie card from 1996!

A most underrated card! 

Selling unopened boxes and packs is a great way to find huge hits and mint cards! Fresh from the pack is often the way to go in terms of finding treasures from yesteryear!

9-Card LOTs From Binders is a Fine Way to Sell Cards

There's no doubt about it--being able to sell an entire sheet from a binder is not only cost effective for the dealer, it's a great way to encourage collectors to get more than they bargained for! For instance, in the above photo, we're selling seven cards from 1970, alongside a Bo Bichette and Herb Score. Variety in offerings, leads to greater interest and sharing.

A Wax Box Loaded with Talent

I can recall being so into the 1983 Topps cards 
1983 Topps mainly for Ryan, Henderson's third year card and other superstars. I didn't even realize my world would be rocked by Boggs and Gwynn--both rookies in '83 Topps! The design of the players' faces in the bubble and action in the bigger photo, were great! A novel approach to getting both portraits and in-action cards! 

The Underrated Rube Marquard

Rube Marquard was a brilliant pitcher whom never to this day, never received as much accolades and praise as he oughta. The lefty entered baseball's Hall of Fame in 1971, the passed away in 1980. His best years were with the Giants of the Polo Grounds. This card can be examined HERE

 1970 Topps Carl Yastrzemski 

Carl Yaztremski was one of the coolest players in the game and played every season of his career for the Boston Red Sox! His career landed him into the HOF! His bat is available here on the Around the Horn online store! It's JSA authenticated and a true beauty!

One of the Most Interesting Cards Ever

This 2006 Topps Alex Gordon card might be one of the most interesting cards on the planet! Where is he? Where are his stats? How could Topps have possibly gotten away with printing blank Alex Gordon cards? Either way, these gaffed babies are jumping in value-white and gold, and playerless! Are we to assume of this were 1957, some kid would have simply drawn Gordon in? Are collectors in 2006 privy enough to not mess with imperfection? So many questions. Such a fabulous card! 

***Reggie's Rookie!!!***

Reggie is a legend. Growing up, I remember fetching some Reggie's bars for my dad up the block! A clutch HOFer, this card is must for any collection as it only gains in value over time! Check out the brilliant corners of this gem! A marvel!

***1982 Fleer Cello Packs Box SEALED!!!

This is the 1982 Fleer cello-pack box, which is loaded with big hits and treasures inside! The best part mainly, of opening boxes like these, are the cards are basically all going to be in mint condition! From pack to the protective case! A simple boarder, these 1982 Fleer have simple backs and were a hit at the comic book store back in the day!
 Johnny Bench towards the end of his career...
 Graded 10 Ripken Jr rookie cards go for $500 and up!
 Fastest man alive to ever step on a baseball field!
 A signed Carter '82 Fleer--amazing!
 Carter with Parker AKA The Cobra!
The back-flipping shortstop, Hall of Famer, Ozzie Smith!

A box full of memories--many of the cards feature straight-up portraits as well, with little to no action! Cello packs are the see-through wrapped packs, which have more cards than your usual wax-packs which wrap the cards in wax paper.

Lloyd "Little Poison" Waner's Rookie Card!

It's true! I presently have this HOFer's rookie card from 1933 Goudey, online HERE!

The card is in Good condition with rounded corners and mild stains on the top of the front. Waner, at 5'9 tall, was considered "little". A great hitter, he and his brother, Paul, set the MLB record for most collected hits by a brother team! Lloyd also managed to hit over .300 in ten different seasons--quite an accomplished feat and just one of many reasons why he made it into the Hall of Fame.

This Waner rookie will certainly gain in value over time.
