Last Monday I asked you if you'd be interested in seeing the contents of the remaining four mystery packs I purchased from the Online Dime Box. Nobody responded "no" and a few of you were interested... so I grabbed the second most interesting pack. The one featuring Peter Cushing:
1977 O-Pee-Chee Star Wars #168
Sorry dayf, I snagged the Tarkin. As most of you know... the 1977 Topps Star Wars set will always have a special place in my collection, but there's room for his sister set too. Like the Billy Pierce I pulled last week, this card alone paid for the $1 mystery pack.
Let's see if there were any other cards I plan to keep:
Well... it definitely gets an A+ for variety. There's a little bit of everything packed into this pack and I was able to find a few more cards for my collection:
2016 Pokemon XY Evolutions Reverse Foil #43
Never played Pokemon. Never will. But I have a small collection of leftover cards from when I used to sell them to my students. This card was thrown into that box.
1989 Topps TMNT Stickers #10
Had I been born five years later, I'm pretty sure I would have been a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. But it just wasn't meant to be. Anyways... I'm going to keep this cool looking sticker and maybe one day I'll stumble across an unopened box of this stuff at the flea market and complete the rest of the set.
1991 Pro Set Super Star MusiCards #101
I really like U2. The Joshua Tree is one of my favorite albums from the 80's. Excited to one day read Gavin's writeup on this card. Until then... this card will be thrown into a box with my other Pro Set MusiCards.
Well that wraps up another Online Dime Box mystery pack. I'll finish off this post with a two more non-sports cards that I had sitting in my collection along with a famous quote:
