PackGeek rip #22 – 1980 Topps Basketball Wax Packs

We’ve been pretty baseball heavy lately, so I thought it was time to mix it up a bit.  Join me in ripping some 1980 Topps Basketball wax packs – in search of what some may say is the single greatest basketball card in existence.

 

PackGeek 2.0 …Return of the Geek

Coming soon!!

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…

PackGeek rip #17 – (2) 1970 O-Pee-Chee Baseball wax packs

I had so much fun ripping into the last batch of Canadian wax, that I decided to dive a little bit deeper into the baseball card history books – and try some 1970 OPC wax packs on for size.  Key hits from this release would be Reggie Jackson, Thurman Munson rookie, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Nolan Ryan, etc.  They’re all in there  Now lets pull a few!

PackGeek rip #16 (2) 1971 O-Pee-Chee Baseball vintage wax packs

Greetings pack rippers!  Today we’ll be tearing into some vintage Canadian wax.  Recently purchased from the Baseball Card Exchange, we have two beautifully kept packs of 1971 O-Pee-Chee Baseball (Series 3).  Key hits in this series are the Steve Garvey rookie, Brooks Robinson & Joe Morgan.  Let’s see if we can’t find some Canadian gold in here.

PackGeek rip #15 (2) 1979-80 Topps Hockey wax packs

It’s been a while, so PackGeek needed to come back with a bag…or a rip as it were.  Today we’re going to be ripping into two smoking hot unopened packs of 1979-80 Topps Hockey – recently purchased from the mecca of all unopened products – the Baseball Card Exchange.  The geek is in search of a minty fresh Wayne Gretzky rookie.  Let’s see if he can find one…

The latest!

Hello fellow sports card enthusiasts!  I know it’s been kind of quiet around here lately, but I’m happy to report that I placed a new order with BBCE today for some beautiful new wax.  Steve Hart has some awesome looking new product – and I highly recommend taking a stroll through the site if you haven’t visited the Baseball Card Exchange lately.
