Cheap Wax Wednesday Box Breaks: 2000 Topps Stars Baseball

Share:

For those who have been following along with my blog for the last four-plus years, welcome to the new home of #CheapWaxWednesday! For those new to the series, every Wednesday I share a box break of a “cheap” product. As a rule for this series, $50 is the maximum I usually pay. The product can be from any year and I try to jump around to share a variety of years and products.

So without further ado, this week’s Cheap Wax Wednesday break features 2000 Topps Stars Baseball.

This box cost around $72 when it was released back in 2000. What did I pay? A lot less.

Finally, a card back. Not a big fan of this one as I prefer the stats-loaded card backs.

Not a bad box for $30! Lots of inserts to find and I got lucky with the double-relic pack. There is also a really solid autograph checklist in this product, including names like Yaz, Gibson, Jeter and Ozzie Smith. The autographs aren’t easy to find, though, as there is just one in every 310 packs overall.
