Default 1972 Topps Holiday Rack Pack Rip

Do you like an extremely dull pair of scissors?

Do you like centered things?

Do you like cursing?

Do you like when moments of humor are few and far between?

Do you like falling for holiday scams?

Do you like the names Boccabella and Spinks?

Do you like people who just won't shut up?

Do you like bitter disappointment?

Do you like ridiculously poor camera placement?

Do you like complete wastes of time and money?

Do you like screaming, "For the love of God, will you suck on a frickin' cough drop already!!!!!!!"?

Do you like the absence of a twist ending?

And again, do you like ridiculously poor camera placement?


If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this pack break video is for you!!!

Enjoy the long-winded foolishness.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980s.

Looks painful. I see the comments are turned off.

There is another one of those out there on YouTube where the guy is ripping an "original" '67 Christmas rack and commenting on how "Gee, this plastic isn't old and crinkly like you would think. It's very thick..."

Um, that's because the plastic is probably from 2010.

Between the scissors and table, I feel like he's relegated to doing this in his daughter's room.

Ha ha!!! Yes, it looks like a little kid's room with the trays and girlie scissors (Uh oh!! Am I allowed to say "girlie" anymore?), but the reality is I had to throw it together quickly. Next time I'll soothe my voice to avoid the over-rasping, and read from a script. And the comments are on now. I believe it was turned off because I was forced to check a box whether or not it was 'made for kids.' I assumed that meant 'kid friendly' or whatever...didn't realize they meant 'directed' at kids. Live and learn. That box is now unchecked.

So Darren, let me clarify -

I meant it looks "painful" because I think all Christmas Racks must have to be. To my knowledge they were not made (legitimately) past the 60's. It's true that some have marquee HOF'ers like Mantle or Mays showing, but those were made as showpieces that would be grabbed just for those cards.

Anywho, if you had fun with what you were doing opening it up, that's all that counts. Great video! Sorry I know my earlier comment could be taken the other way.

Oh, no! Ha ha! I didn't take it badly at all. You're fine. I knew it was going to be painfully short of anything good, but since I know how hard that Barton card is to find centered, I took the risk.
