    Dang, thats all they had in Detroit when I was a kid, the 1975 mini’s. Had a box full of them. Traded them to the local toy store for a butt load of the topps gum. Bad move I guess.
    But hey, was only like 8 or 9 years old.

    If I remember right, the minis are typically valued at 1.5x the price of standards except on the key rookie cards, which are about the same as standards.

    Awesome! Love the 75 mini’s! Had no idea that fella who was mentioned had a stockpile of these haha. Can’t wait for the next one! I would have ate the gum as a ha-ha moment as long as it was on video. Did that to an 87 pack and it was so awful.. But hillarious.

    I’ve had good luck buying old packs on ebay…I decided I wanted a pack of everything baseball from 1974 to the present. I couldn’t help myself and decided to open them. I pulled a ’75 Bench, a ’78 Ryan Record Breaker and a ’79 Ozzie Smith Rookie Card. They were from different dealers.

    How about 1989 Score baseball. Yes! 1989 Score baseball where there was a HUGE Print Run. Follow that with a 1991 Donruss Series I & II Rip!

    Nice, inexpensive “Junk Wax” that is over 20 years old, but does not require a mortgage to buy! Still can find some nice rookie cards and stars!

    Thank you!
