Pack Geek rip #27 | 1984 Donruss Baseball

Join me in ripping (even more) 1984 Donruss Baseball, in search of the elusive Don Mattingly rookie!

1975 Topps Mini Baseball Wax Packs

My favorite card ever is the 1975 Topps George Brett rookie. I’ve been obsessed with this card since I was a young collector. The ’75 Brett is also  #1 on the PackGeek Pull Goal list, and I’m trying to pull one today. Let’s rock!

PackGeek rip #24 – 1988 Fleer Basketball Wax Packs

Did someone say, “Scottie Pippen rookie”? Let’s go looking for one!!

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…


Two unopened wax packs of 1966 O-Pee-Chee Baseball, courtesy of Steve Hart and the good folks at BBCE.  And with this latest arrival – I’ll be pursuing Pull Goal #5 – a 1966 OPC Mickey Mantle!!

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!
