Ripping early 90s packs

The nice lady at work brought me more baseball cards today. Along with some sets, there were several boxes of packs from the early 90s. Most of them aren’t worth much but I love opening packs.

I landed a Sammy Sosa and Frank Thomas RC! (I’m a big Sosa fan!)

Here’s a few more Ryne Sandberg cards for my collection.

Anyone need any 1991 Upper Deck Chipper Jones RCs? 🙂 I also landed the 1990 Upper Deck Sammy Sosa RC so that made me happy too!

The Stadium Club cards were the most frustrating of the bunch to open. Due to the type of finish on the card combined with years of storage probably in a uncontrolled climate, all the cards were stuck together. So it was a very time consuming process of separating them while not damaging the cards. I’m not sure I would want to buy any of those as it was not a pleasant experience. Since they were free though, I shouldn’t complain too much. 🙂

The last of my stash

When I used to collect baseball cards back in the day, I would always try to hold back a few packs hoping they would be worth something. Sadly none of the packs I hung on to increased in value. I ran across them going through the closet so figured it was time to bust these bad boys open.

Talk about some sluggers here! Sad that these cards are worth almost nothing.

A few Jeff Bagwell 2nd year cards. Barely worth a quarter! 🙁

More dominating players from that era: Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, Tony Gywnn. I even found a Chipper Jones RC!

It was fun ripping wax as they say. It brought back memories of the days I used to buy and sell cards at flea markets.
