1983 O-Pee-Chee rip (part 2) – the results…

Okay, here’s the best of the best.  Unfortunately – I don’t think I pulled any PSA 10-worthy Gwynn’s…








1983 O-Pee-Chee OPC – Baseball rip – The Quest for a MINT Tony Gwynn rookie

It’s been a while since I’ve opened anything, so I had to pull the trigger recently on some boxes that I personally think are one of the best buys out there – 1983 OPC Baseball.  It’s a small set and your chances of pulling both the Gwynn & Sandberg rookies are very strong.  In fact, you’re likely to pull more than one of each in every box.  BBCE sells these boxes for $70 a pop – so I dove in deep.  I’m not going to video tape these rips, as it’s going to take a while to get through everything – but I plan to scan in any nice hits.

Scans to follow this evening, wish me luck!




PackGeek rip #18 – (2) 1966 O-Pee-Chee Baseball wax packs

These packs didn’t survive long at the GeekPad, way too much temptation for my lack of willpower.  As it turns out – there were only four cards/pack, as opposed to five, as I had previously thought.  Oh well – let’s rip…

A package arrived in the mail today…

My mail is usually pretty boring – lots of sale flyers, bills and an occasional magazine.  Today’s mail was different…  I had a small, but well packaged box from a business in the Chicago area.  It’s not just any business, its the Baseball Card Exchange – the mecca of all things unopened…and awesome.  After tearing through a few layers of packaging, I was greeted with a glorious vision…
