Share:

This week’s #CheapWaxWednesday break features a bonus box of 1995 Leaf Limited Series 2 Baseball. Why am I calling it a bonus box? You’ll see.

I paid $43 for this one, nearing the $50 Cheap Wax Wednesday maximum. When this product was released this box cost around $100!

Here’s a Griffey card back. Leaf went with a different approach on these, featuring career numbers sorted by month.

Five extra packs in this one. You will never hear me complain about extra packs! It didn’t hurt that I finally hit a Lumberjacks insert (the only real inserts to chase in this set) in pack 23.
