Cheap Wax Wednesday Box Breaks: 1995 Leaf Limited Series 2 Baseball
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!

Wait, pack 21? That’s right. That’s why I called this one a bonus box. Each one is supposed to have just 20 packs. Mo Vaughn, Wally Joyner & Tony Gwynn BP
Chuck Finley & Kenny Lofton BP
Mark McGwire, Barry Larkin BP & Jeff Bagwell Lumberjacks (1:23 packs)
Lumberjack inserts were numbered to 5,000 copies, which was a big deal back in 1995.
Ken Griffey, Jr. & Will Clark BP
Jack McDowell & Rafael Palmeiro BP
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.
