In the last five months, there have been three sellers of this product. That means it's truly scarce because dealers like to sell things. For example, this is not my hobby. This is how I try to make a living. BUT I TRY NOT TO GIVE THE GOOD STUFF AWAY BECAUSE NO ONE CAN SELL THE JUNK.So if you give the good stuff away, all you have left is junk. I once had 38 boxes of this. Bought them at card shows back when they came out and shortly thereafter. Very few dealers bought the product. Look, there is no Michael Jordan in these packs.
If there were, boxes would be 25 times the price--or more. But Topps did not make much of this. There are 24 packs in a box and only four cards in a pack.So 96 cards in a whole box. Not counting the inserts, refractors, etc, the base set consists of 165 cards. You might be able to get a complete base set out of two boxes but it would be close.
I bought five complete sets back in 1998 from a dealer who was chasing refractors and the other inserts. The cards themselves are some of the nicest stuff Topps has ever done. The double-sided chromium diamond duo cards are outstanding, though hard to find. This contains an early Derek Jeter card, but there is much, much more. If all of Topps products were half this nice back in the mid-1980s, there never would have been a need for Upper Deck.I now have one box left for sale as of 12/11. So they get most of my remaining boxes. Here are the rules: 1 No discounts. They ALWAYS start at 88 cents with no reserve. 4 Remember rule number one.
Life is short enough without dealing with things that don't really matter. 5 If you have a question, keep it to yourself. Most of my kids like me too--the majority of the time anyway!
