Collector's Cache Box (Part II)

Welcome back! Here's the second half of the loose cards from the "Collector's Cache Box" I am quite enjoying going through this box and creating this post as I sort through it.

So here's the first card from the second stack.

2007 TriStar Prospects Plus Jordan Zimmermann. Drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 2007 draft, he currently is pitching with the big club.

The next card was Jason Heyward. Also the biggest card in the 100 card set. I'll take it. Always impressive in a repack.

More oddball stuff. I got Eddie Murray, Carlton Fisk, Dale Murphy and Pete Rose from the 1984 Ralston Purina set.

Tony Gwynn from the 1989 Topps 60 card All-Star Set Collector's Edition. I also got Cal Ripken.

I also got a few of the Topps 1990 All-Star Game Commemorative Set. If I remember correctly, you could get these in rack packs.

I'm liking this stack better than the first.

My first 1988 O-Pee-Chee card.

My second 1988 O-Pee-Chee card.

I now own 10 of the 22 card 1988 All-Star Game Commemorative Set.

A couple of Kmart Tony Gwynn's.

More O-Pee-Chee.

Here's where the older cards started to appear.

First up, an appearance from 1977 Topps.

Then three from 1974 Topps.

And finally, a miscut 1959 Topps Ray Monzant.

That's it for the loose cards. Not bad, other than the promised vintage it's your typical repack, and they did make good on their promise of 6 decades of cards as I got cards from the 50's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's and also some from last year.

Next post....the rest of the box!


  1. Every repack these people produce is chock-full-of miscut cards. It's actually pretty sh!tty of them. It tarnishes what would otherwise be a tremendous product. Nonetheless, I had fun with the Cache box I got, too!

    Thanks for sharing your findings!

  2. Very cool! I'll have to get one of these "Collector's Cache" boxes the next time I have some extra cash.
