I have three boxes of Topps wax packs, '86,'88,and 91. Plus some packs of '92 score csrds. I don't know if I should open them or leave 'em. Were there really any great rookies those years? I think the card hoby is all about the rookie cards these days. Maybe if I get some great cards I can buy another AR! My real incentive is all that gum. We used to buys 20 or 30 packs at a time and end up with HUGE wads of gum in our mouths. I'd chew it til my jaw was sore and I was bouncing off the walls or too sick from all the sugar. Decisions, decisions. Sherm

If you are wanting AR money sell the unopened packs at a high price for just the chance of getting a rookie card inside. Saves you some work.

Sorry for saying this, but it will hurt your feelings. Baseball cards are worthless pieces of cardboard that companies artificially inflate the values of in order to increase demand for a product. Baseball card companies in the past through the use of the Beckett baseball card magazine and other price lists pump up a demand for a product that had no demand whatsoever. The book listed the particular baseball card for say $20.00 each, but who would actually that much for the item (a fool). They were pretty much creating fiat money that had nothing to backup the value of the items with unlimited circulation. For example, if the Beckett listed a Griffey Upper Deck rookie card for $150.00 times 1 million cards produced, the baseball card company literally just created 150 million dollars. What would keep these companies from producing more cards just to sell more product.

Ebay has them for dirt cheap. Try to make money elsewhere. Use them for target practice.

If they're wax packs then I say open the things. It's too easy to open them replace the cards and reseal them. They won't command a high value on todays market as a complete package. Alex

I wonder if the Twins cards are going to be worth something since it looks like MLB is forcing them and the Expos to fold.
