I couldn't resist any longer! I HAD to bust one of these. This is one hobby box of Maxx's 1992 5th Anniversary Edition Black cards. There are 36 packs of 14 cards. Each pack has thirteen Black 92's & one "vintage" Maxx card (1988-1991). I'm listing by pack but only the "vintage" card and anything good.
Here are the first 9 packs from the bottom-right corner of the box:

THANKS for looking! I'll post the next 9 packs after I open them, and then 9 more, and then the final nine. Big Grin
It was one Davey Allison per pack...LOL. Darn near.

A couple Jeff Gordon cards is good.
Considering the JG's book for $8 and the Dale Sr. cards list at $4, pretty good first 1/4 of the box. I opened the next 9, but I'll have to type them up after work tonight. I'm liking the "vintage" card in every pack too. Makes the break a little more fun. Also, no duplicates in the first 9 packs.

#71 Dave Marcis

9th pack:
1991 Maxx #219 Kirk Shelmerdine (All Pro - Crew Chief)
#231 Dale Earnhardt (All Pro) !
#59 Patty Moise (my only card ever of her)
#42 Kyle Petty
a bunch of cards of non-drivers that we know like Hammond, Wingo, Petree and Mike Joy

The "vintage" weren't as good in this stack (mostly b/c the Hendrick was a double). There were no Gordon's but several Dale Sr. cards. Not a bad stack.
Now that I've blended the two 9-pack stacks together numerically, I confirmed something I thought I noticed while opening them. MOST of the 1st group were even-numbered cards and MOST of the 2nd group were odd-numbered cards. I still have NO DUPLICATES of 1992 Maxx cards.

Halfway through the box and only one card has been pulled twice: the '89 Hendrick RC - not a bad one to duplicate.

I'll open and post the next stack later today.

BREAK OVER. I'll blend this stack with the rest and let y'all know if I completed the set and a final breakdown of the entire box.
So back in the day my dad would build the Maxx sets. As I recall, depending on the number of cards in the set, a single box got him well on his way. Very few duplicates.

!988 Earnhardt Championship card! Nice! If we can, I would like to try to work some trades. Nice box.

I thought of you every time I pulled a Sr. card. I have a bunch for you now. The 1988 card was almost exactly what I was hoping to pull. It's the most valuable regular card in the release. I could have only done better with some Myrtle Beach versions or other really rare cards. I didn't need a regular '88 for any of my drivers b/c I already have them.
So I was fooled a bit by the box. It said 14 cards per pack. I thought it was counting the vintage card, but it wasn't. So I got 36 more cards than I thought.
The box is actually 540 cards instead of 504.

Here's the breakdown:

I completed the 1992 300-card set and have 204 duplicates. Not a single 1992 card was pulled 3 times. I pulled 14 duplicates of drivers I collect (Martin, Gordon, Rudd, Davey A. and D. Jarrett). I only had 4 of them already (1 Gordon and 3 Martin's). I pulled 7 duplicate Davey's for that PC. I pulled 7 duplicate Dale Sr. cards too (for Nick Wilson).

The "vintage" cards break down like this:
1988 = 6 cards (1 dup.)
1989 = 6 cards (2 dups and 1 triple)
1990 = 6 cards (1 dup.)
1991 = 13 cards (no dups)
1991 Update = 5 cards (no dups)

This was a fun break, even without the big '88 Earnhardt pull. It was interesting pulling cards of a couple guys that are STILL racing (Morgan Shepherd and Jeff Green), a bunch of owners that are still around and a bunch of guys that are part of the broadcasts now (JG, DW, Kyle Petty, Larry Mac).

I have 2 boxes of Black left that I need to sell. Anyone interested?
Nice 88 Earnhardt and crew congrats
