Junk Mall Junk Wax Wednesday - SPECIAL

This week we have a repackaged lot of baseball cards that turned up at my daughter's resale shop. She sent me a picture similar to this one I took, asking if I wanted them. I saw the '81 and '83 Topps and replied with a "Yes please!" She gets a discount, so these were only around $5.

Here's how the 286-card repack broke down with just a sampling of each:
1978 Topps - 2 cards

1979 Topps - 4 cards

1981 Topps - 19 cards

1981 Fleer - 4 cards

1982 Fleer - 1 card

1983 Topps - 3 cards

1983 Fleer - 1 card

Fleer Stickers - 2 cards (1983, 1985)

1985 Donruss - 13 cards, all miscut the same way!

1986 Topps Traded - 2 cards

1986 Topps Box Bottoms - 3 cards

1986 Donruss - 1 card

1988 Fleer - 66 cards (12 checklist #656, 10 checklist #657)

Including this error (21 Dan Schatzader)

1984 Donruss - 1 card

1991 Topps - 153 (including this dark logo variation)

1988 Topps - 12

1989 Topps - 1

Turns out the 1981 and 1983 Topps were mostly window dressing.

Worth the 5-bucks, yes, if just for the fact that I didn't know what I was going to find.


  1. You don't see box bottoms often in repacked cards!

  2. Nice find with the box bottoms and some of the older sets.
    Did you happen to get
    2 George Brett record breaker
    5 Cal Ripken record breaker
    398 Ryne Sandberg all-star
    600 Bo Jackson and
    670 Rickey Henderson

    from the 1991 Topps stack? Those are the last 5 cards I need to complete the set.

  3. Oh yeah, I'd snap that up, even if I have 80 percent of those.

  4. Box Bottoms are a great find. And it kind of amazes me that that card breakdown is the same, if not better, than what I got out of repacks when I was a kid in the late 1980s.

  5. I think that a lot of bloggers would've took this deal. I don't think that I would've though, but that's only because I don't very good mojo with pack/repacks anymore, so I'd just assume that there wouldn't be anything for me in there.

  6. Not bad, I would have gambled as well
