Wow, how cool is that?! Off to BGS/PSA now I presume?

Yes, they are all going to PSA. Golden rule for me, vintage to PSA and modern autos to BGS.

One HOFer (Aparicio) and three 1959 WS winners (Gilliam [also a Negro League great], Giallombardo, and Demeter) in great condition. I'd say that's a good break!

how long did you sit on that pack before deciding to open it if you don't mind my asking?

I debate on how long i could resist temptation if i stumbled upon something like that.... I don't think it'd last long ;( I'd have to sell it unopened to resist

I waited a few months but there was no doubt it was going to be opened. I just wanted to get the break on video so I held out until I was able to buy one(a video camera). I was happy with the centering on all of them with the Aparicio being the most off center. Unfortunately, that's one of the big money cards in a graded set.It would have been nice if it was like the Klaus next to it. I buy unopened to break it for the most part. There are few exceptions.
