Default Let's See Some Rack Packs & Cello Packs

My son and I were going through an old tub of cards last night and I found a shoe box with about 30 unopened rack packs and cello packs that I'd forgotten about. They ranged from the 1977 Topps to early 1990s Topps, Donruss and Fleer. Most of them had "stars" showing on top or bottom.

Let's see some of your packs that show interesting player(s) on top or bottom.

Here are a few of the ones I pulled last night:

--1981 Topps rack w/Johnny Bench record breaker on top
--1982 Topps cell w/Pete Rose on top
--1987 Topps rack w/ Barry Bonds on top
--1989 Topps rack w/Greg Maddux on top
--1990 Donruss rack w/Nolan Ryan on top

I don't really get too much into the stars on top but I'm a sucker for a rack pack with an error on top.

Very cool -- and good catches on your part! Setting aside packs with stars on top was always easy and obvious, but I wouldn't have caught most of those errors before ripping open the packs.

I'd love to get a pack with the Glavine/Smoltz error on top.

I remember when that Juan Gonzalez rookie card was a nice pull.

That 1988 rack with the price sticker makes me miss Kaybee.

Pretty soon when Toys R Us goes, my toy store memories are just that.

This is my only unopened rack pack. It has the semi rare Roger Clemens Blue Streak error showing in the center.

Years ago I came across an 81 Topps rack pack with 2 Montanas showing on ebay. I didn't win it, but I did make a thread about it. Hahahaha. Wish I had taken a screen shot of it.

How about this one? How many of you have seen 1986 Topps baseball 99 cent cellos? These bad boys have no gum and are a massive 50 cards each.



And with a pretty decent manager on there to boot!

Saw this one on eBay last week. Didn't win it but thought is was interesting.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/-/223059750107

Item: 223059750107

42 Gary Sheffield cards? I'm not too familiar with resealed rack packs - is this possible?

How about 3 HOF-ers on the same pack?
