Takeaways:

  • If there were blogs back in 87 O-Pee-Chee would have got hammered for their coalition.  Half the packs had doubles in them.  
  • There were 8 Rob Deer, joe Sambito, and  Dave Smith cards.  All miscut on the back exactly the same.  (there may be 8 cards of others two those 3 just jumped out at me.
  • 1987 Gum tastes horrible and is hard as a rock.
  • My son agrees.
  • I didn't notice any gum stains on any cards.
  • Some of you may get cards that have gum attached to them.
  • If you get one of these gum stuck cards don't worry about it you probably got a double as well.
  •  I have a new respect for people that break boxes and type out the results.  This sucks.
  • No Conseco or Bonds.  It  could have been searched but everything was miscut exactly the same so I don't think it was.  But looking at eBay why bother.
  • I don't like to watch them but I now know why people do box breaks on video.  
I'll be shipping packages soon.  If you don't want all your doubles please let me know soon.  Hopefully I can ship these all as $1.71 packages.

    I certainly want my doubles! Can somebody say B-I-P!

    Clearly, when I collected this set, I never bought entire boxes of it.

    Hockey was better collated. Not sure how, since it would be the same equipment.

    Damn 8 Rob Deer and not a single Yount. Damn you OPC!!!! Maybe the doubles in the pack was an OPC gimmick of the day? I see some TTM to Rob Deer in my future!!!

    I'm going to enjoy looking at all those '87 OPCs as much as you enjoy looking at '62 Topps, but have my Dodgers I must.
