Lastly, the Scott Rolen (a very underrated player, in my opinion) card back.

Overall a nice break. These Fleer Showcase cards absolutely feel high end, with a thicker card stock and glossy surface. Really nice to hit the Griffey Legacy parallel. With there being only one per box it is always nice to hit a big name. It also doesn’t hurt that I hit a new Pedro card for the PC!

    Here’s why I never open wax anymore. You spend $49 on a box and get 120 cards. 110 can be found in a dime bin. The SP’s and #’d cards and better inserts can be found for 25-50 cents each. The two game used cards and the auto you can track down for $1-$2 each. The Griffey parallel might be tough because of its scarcity but if you were desperately seeking that card you can probably find it for $5. $10 tops. So you’ve spent $49 on a box that you can buy the cards for separately for $25-$30. Maybe if you got luckier with the box and pulled something truly valuable you could luck out, but why bother? Especially on an old product like this, if your main concern is resale value. Nobody is looking for this stuff anymore, only the hottest rookies.

    I open product more for the fun of it. Since I don’t sell much I am not too worried about resale value. I am a true collector at heart!
