Hey! Some people post box breaks of the latest goodies. I could have done that with the box of Between the Pipes I picked up yesterday. Instead, I'll post goodies from a $5.00 box of 1988 Leaf. Despite my love of masks, I'll lead with the cheap-o stuff.
Notable missing cards:
1 Mark McGwire - Diamond King
40 Mark Grace - Rated Rookie
65 Wade Boggs
90 Tony Gwynn
138 Jose Canseco
168 Paul Molitor
The most surprising thing about the set. You'd think with a Canadian set, that the Blue Jays or Expos would have the most cards. You'd be wrong. Among the base set, the Mets lead the way with 18 base cards. The Jays only had 17, and that's with an extra card in the base for both the MVP and Canadian greats. There were only 14 Expos, as opposed to 15 Red Sox.
But, enough with that, let's show off the goodies!
And that's about all for the box of Leaf. I've probably the first person to put 1988 Leaf on their wantlist for set building purposes, so if you've got some around, let me know!
As a final note, if you get a package from me over the next week or so, don't be shocked if you find some of these bilingual goodies in the package.
