I think I'm being trolled. Not only am I getting 99% commons, I'm getting duplicates. I did get a 1984 Don Mattingly (which I didn't have) but so far this box has been horrifyingly bad. One of the things I don't understand about the YouTubers when I see them open products like this is their fascination with Hall of Famers. Yes, I got a Nolan Ryan and a Cal Ripken but it's 88 Topps. Who the f@#k cares? If you hoard cards like I do, you already have 30 of them.

Alright, I hope you'll join me in taking a deep breath and trudging through that 3rd rack pack next post.

  1. Yes, I have all of these cards. Great cards, but I don't need more. I'll have to check out videos on this, I'm sure I'll be amused ... or annoyed.

  2. The Mattingly rookie is fantastic. You could still get a lot of money for it here in NY.
