Baseball Card Show Purchase #8 – Box Of 1988 Score Baseball Cards – YESSIR!!!
The same seller with the Marlins goodies and assorted bargain bins had a full table of vintage wax. And the table was loaded.
I must have walked by his display three or four times before I finally decided to really look and see what he had.
I’ve bought 1980’s wax boxes at card shows in the past, but it has been a while. And since I have not ripped any modern wax since the Series 1 release of the 2014 Topps set, my desire to tear into some baseball card packs has been building.
So, I checked out his assortment and narrowed it down to a few random boxes.
Eventually, I opted for a box of 1988 Score baseball packs. The box has 36 packs, and as many of you know this was Score’s debut set. The packs were packaged in a clear plastic versus foil or wax paper, and you can see the top card on each pack if you focus your attention towards it.
Here is my buy:
The box is a bit tattered, but the packs are more than fine.
In addition to that, the bottom of the box features four cards…
And wouldn’t you know that I got one with Andre Dawson on it! And Darryl Strawberry and Rickey Henderson too.
Here is a look at the opened box:
And here is a stack of some of the packs…
As for what I am going to do now, I am not quite sure.
While I don’t need all of these cards in my collection, and I have no desire to build this set, I am excited to rip into some of them.
Maybe I will give a few to my boys. And maybe I will offer up a few of them on my blog.
Time will tell. But, I can guarantee that when I rip into them, I will share the cards with you right here.
Thanks for reading.
