I mentioned my string of good luck hit wise in the last few months.
What has to be the best of that run came from an old school box I picked up from the Baseball Card Exchange at the National. Well to be exact it was a box my dad and I picked up for my son as per his request for “old school hockey cards with gum in the packs”. We picked him up a wax box of 1988-89 Topps Hockey.
It was only about $135, so not much more than a current mid level wax box and have the possibility to pull rookies of a few HOFers and few sure to soon be HOFers.
Cracking old school wax is amazing, I forgot how great it is to slip your finger nail into the corner of the pack and pup the wax seal. Brings me back.
My son my dad and I sat around the table cracking wax, what is better than that? Nothing, that’s what.
I love this card. I remember when it was second only to Gretzky and Lemieux as far as hockey cardboards was concerned. My son was more interested in the helmet stickers so I will hold on to these for him for a few years until he gets a few more years behind them.
