The $15 3200 Count Box - Part 1
The box contained 1 complete set, and I now own a complete 200 card set of the die-cut version of 1995 SP Championship series. This did include the Derek Jeter #20 base card, which goes for between 5-10 bucks depending on the sites I searched (sportlots, ebay, COMC). That set should be enough to get a post of its own.
There were two almost-complete sets in the box as well, as I added the base set of Series 1 Upper Deck from 2006 and 2009. The only cards I needed to complete this set were the Colorado Rockies base cards. All other cards were there. While it really isn't a priority, I will likely add them at a later date to finish the set.
Of interest to my other blog, the box had over 100 of the silver signature parallels from 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice. I'll be showing them off as I get to them, which at this rate will probably be finished around 2023. But I now have over 150 of these parallels.
There were also about 80 1995 silver signature parallels, and a dozen golds.
And that's just the easily grouped stuff that I'm keeping. The #supertraders can be on the look out for some of these showing up in future mailers.
Approx. 65 1992 Gold Leaf
Approx 150 1994 Donruss
Approx 200 1993 Fleer Ultra Series 1
Approx 200 1992 Donruss
And about 300 other cards (1993 Topps, 1993 Flair, 1993 UD Fun and more)
As of now, I've only extracted some of the Cleveland cards from the 300, a portion of which can be seen here.
So, while it wasn't 3200 cards in the box, it still worked out to less than a penny per card, a rate I approve of.
The Alomar, the Loftons and the 3d cards were all among the contents of the final miscellaneous portion. The only other content that I've partly sorted through was the Blue Jays stuff, splitting the dupes into two piles which will be split between the Card Papoy (cards already sent to Bob Walk the Plank) and OrlandoBolts, for whom I waiting for a final card to fill out that package.
That was a lot of text. So, I'll hit the box, ignoring all the Upper Deck sets and partial sets, and show off all the Mets hiding among the #supertrader cards.
Up next, the more extensive Expos content.
