Default What's the oldest wax pack you've ever opened?

What's the oldest wax/rack/cello you've ever opened?

Also, Considering today's prices for unopened material .. assuming you paid close to market price ... What year would you draw the line at now, for opening a pack?

On a side note ... We're planning to do a couple of group wax breaks over in the Facebook group; Vintage Football Cards. What years would interest you most?

A few years ago I opened a '62 pack. And ate the gum.
Mistake on both counts.

Back in the 1990's there was a 1954 Bowman find and I bought a 1 cent pack and got an Otto Graham. I wish I still had it.

Probably opened a couple boxes worth of 1961 Nu-Card Football back in the late 80's. Also, maybe a Cello Box worth of 1970 Topps.

Default 1981 Fleer IA Football

I've opened more than 1 box of 1981 Fleer In Action Football. Silly but I'm looking for PSA worthy cards.

Even though I wasn't born until 1960, I managed to open a 1951 Bowman football wax pack and entire box of 1957 Topps football high number cellos back in the 1970s when I was a teenager. The '51 pack had a card of Buddy Young, and the gum had pretty much turned to dust. The '57s had all three superstar rookies, Hornung, Starr and Unitas. I only paid $15 for the box of '57s, but opening it remains the worst financial decision of my life.

There was an unopened cello box of 47'-66 exhibits. I picked 3 packs and pulled Mantle and May's. I can say I pulled a mantle rookie....photo. he was pictured in the 51 uniform, not sure what pose

For me it was a 1958 cello pack due to knowing there was a high probability of pulling this card. Once again the centering gods punished me

I got one of those packs as well and pulled the Blanda. It had 2 dinged corners and was O/C.

Oh that's still a fantastic Brown! Though you are right (to be a beggar and a chooser), you did get slightly hosed.
