Baseball Card Show Purchase #8 – A Sealed Box Of 1991 Upper Deck Baseball Cards!!!

My last purchase of the day was this…

100_7995

A box of 1991 Upper Deck baseball cards.

I’ve been in the mood to rip into some packs lately, but none of the new stuff is appealing to me.  Plus, I want more than 3 packs if I’m willing to plunk down $10.

This box cost me just $5, and some of the possible treasures inside include rookie cards of Luis Gonzalez, Reggie Sanders, Mike Mussina, and Chipper Jones.  And who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and ‘Find The Nolan’ too…

But please don’t think that I would hoard all of these packs for myself.  Oh no, I’ll surely keep a few to bust and see what I get, but a majority will go to you – the great readers of this site.  I’ll be holding a series of contests during the off-season, and I will use some of these 1991 UD packs for prize material.

My Last 4 Packs Of 1989 Topps!!

I cannot believe that I held out this long and didn’t rip these open immediately after buying them.

I have enjoyed giving packs of  these cards out as giveaways for some of the contests I have held during the baseball season.

And now I have 4 more to rip through and my box will be complete!!!
