But you know me, I can't pass up cheap junk wax. The guy was asking $15 for the lot. I countered with $10 and he accepted. Not bad, right? 180 packs for $10.
It ended up providing me two solid hours of entertainment as I busted packs and built sets, while flipping back and forth between Monday Night Football and the A's/Rangers game.
Here's a look at the five sets I built:
In addition to those, I pulled a ton of extras and even had a bunch of leftover wax packs that I'll either giveaway, post on Listia, or both.
These cards might not be your cup of tea. But I wanted to kill two birds with one stone and show off the Tony Gwynn cards from each of these sets, while giving you a sample of what these cards look like:
1986 Topps Mini Leaders #65 Tony Gwynn
1987 Topps Mini Leaders #35 Tony Gwynn
1988 Topps Mini Leaders #74 Tony Gwynn
1989 Topps Mini Leaders #39 Tony Gwynn
1990 Topps Mini Leaders #80 Tony Gwynn
Okay... it's your turn.
What do you think about these Topps Mini Leaders? Love 'em? Hate 'em?
I'll be honest, I wasn't a big fan of these back in the 80's. But I had a blast busting these packs and building these sets. And honestly... for the price, I'd do it all over again if the opportunity arises again.
Happy Hump Day!
