I took a road trip to Fenway this past weekend with a buddy of mine to take in the Red Sox and A's game. On the way we stopped at a card shop so I could get some supplies and we each grabbed a handful of junk wax to rip. While I was driving, he was ripping his packs, 1987 Topps, 1988 and 1989 Donruss and 92 UD were on the menu.

Just listening to him get excited about pulling a 87 Topps Pete Rose, "Any Pete Rose is a good card!" and acting like a little kid when he pulled a Bo Jackson card, it was just very refreshing to me. He was smiling from ear to ear, just because he pulled a John Smoltz, Jim Rice, and Dave Winfield in the same pack. It was just a breath of fresh air, someone who was actually ENJOYING the cards, not asking me how much each card booked for.

I didn't pull much out of my 92 UD packs, but I did pull the Tom Selleck Mr. Baseball card which I did keep, I gave the rest of my packs to my friend.


He used to lightly collect hockey when he was younger, now he is collecting Yankees cards and memorabilia. He's going to next years National with me, should be a blast going with someone who enjoys collecting like he does.

I gave my uncle (which is over 60) a box of 87 topps unopened this weekend and he was almost jumping up and down...I told him to open it with his grandkids and he said No I'm keeping this sealed and put it up in the cabinet.....Made my day..
