One time I got a derek jeter rookie in decent condition. I've gotten Ozzie smith, Johnny bench, ken griffey jr. rookies.
But that was a couple years back, some things just aren't the same

I saw in the pictures that it was packs of 80s-90s cards. I thought oh cool those are the ones I used to buy. But I thought about it and realized I had most of the cards I wanted from those years and after a few days on Beckett the bigger realization that even the hits of those packs are pretty much worthless along with the cards I already own. They are cheap. They do sell. They have their place, but the people who think they know what they're getting and are happy with what they get are a select few.
