Great find, by the way. Those cards you purchased at $5 each are absolutely awesome!

Additionaly, welcome to the board. Enjoy. You have landed upon a great website. Plenty of knowledgable collectors willing to help.

Best regards,

Eric
Thanks for the welcome!

Yea, the back is showing on the front & the back of the pack, so no info to be found there...that was my first hope as well!

Welcome aboard!!!

If you're looking to do some trading, I could use the '61 Koufax, a '63 Mays and the '63 Fleer Spahn and/or Koufax. Check out my bucket to see a ton of stuff I have available for trade.

I always thought it would make an interesting reality type show to throw a bunch of fifties cards in boxes, put them out at a yard sale and tell people to pay what they think would be fair. Congrats on the find. The reality nowadays is that most of these estate sales price cards in vg shape at 50-80% of "book value" and the cards don't get much of a look. I'm always fascinated by the fact that whenever there are cards for sale at those general merchandise type auctions ( the one's with furniture, books, costume jewelry, box lots, etc... ) the cards always sell for way more than they should. Off grade 74 Nolan Ryan, 67 Bob Gibson... the kind of cards that would just sit in a five dollar box at a show will go for 12-15 dollars at these auctions.

Anyway, thanks, hope I'm not breaking any rules with multiple photo posts to start, but I'm so damn excited about my find today I just have to share it!!!

Thanks for the heads up on the thread guys. Rob, nice find. The DS boxes I have seen look like the regular 1991 Topps boxes. Are your boxes wrapped in cello? I have not seen DS boxes wrapped in cello - other than BBCE certified boxes (see below). DS boxes will look exactly the same as regular issues 1991 Topps boxes - even the 4 yellow bordered 1991 Topps cards printed on the bottom of the boxes do not have a DS logo on them.

One of the ways you can tell a DS pack is to use a strong blacklight and shine it on the back of the pack. The red trim on the reverse of DS cards should glow or fluoresce; if it doesn't it is likely not a DS pack. However, if every pack in the box glows or fluoresces, there is a high probability it is a DS box. Here is a pic of "sealed" Desert Shield boxes by BBCE (below).

Default BBCE Wrapped Boxes

Were those 1991 Topps boxes wrapped in Cello?
