Vintage Hall of Famer! Yes, this was basically the best $1 grab bag pack thing ever. Pretty much puts that McDonald’s dollar menu commercial to shame, eh?
Also, 1994 Upper Deck football is pretty.
Pretty much everything but the Jerry Rice is available for trade.
That’s it for this one. So long, and thanks for stopping by!
Until our next…
I’d love to add those Patriots to my collection. Anything in particular that you’re looking for? If not, I’ll just go through your want lists and see what I have.
They are all yours. I have no specific thing in mind for what I’d like in return, so whatever you’ve got that you think I might like. 🙂
Well, I have some Cubs cards sitting in the giant trade bait stack so I’ll send you an email with those and we’ll go from there.
Those are some sweet grab bags…. I would have bought a bunch. Of course the vintage are sweet… but I’m a huge fan of 90’s inserts and those 90 Fleer All-Pro cards are awesome. I built that set back 20 years ago.
I dunno how many of them were vintage-laden. The basketball pack I picked up wasn’t, though it was interesting in it’s own right. I believe I saw at least a couple of other packs with a vintage card on top though. Will definitely pick up more next time.
For being from the early days of insert sets, the All-Pro set does have a certain something about it (that I can’t quite place) that makes me really like it.
I would have bought it just for the Chuck Howley. Nice pick up.
Shall I set it aside for you?
I’m sure we could come to some sort of agreement in the near future.
