Default help identifying this pack

In the early 90's I purchased this at a card show, im not sure if its a cello pack because it has no markings,it is sealed and has been since I bought it. Im debating if I should open it or not.

Thank you in advance

Looks like a pack of 1980 Topps. Could potentially pull a Rickey Henderson rookie.

I'm guessing it's a dealer created pack. The Topps Cello packs have the logos on it. The rear the cello pack would have the back of a card.

Those are definitely 1980 Burger King Phillies cards, but I don’t recall seeing them packaged that way. I’m guessing someone did it aftermarket.

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was 1980 Burger King Phillies but I had to double check and sure enough the Schmidt is cropped differently, his batting glove is visible on the BK card but not on the Topps card. I’m guessing a dealer packaged these as a complete set on their own.

The two best cards are showing . ETA, there is a cool pre rookie card of Keith Moreland in there, though.

I don't think a dealer would put a price sticker on a genuine unopened Topps pack.

(A knowledgeable dealer, anyway...)
