I Can't Resist Unopened Packs

I bought a lot of unopened packs last week without knowing much about them.  The price was right so I took a chance.  There were almost 100 unopened one-card packs from 1978.  Sure I expected there to be no stars, but there were a few decent names - Gossage, Foster and a few others as well as the Cubs and White Sox that I like to see.



The fun of it for me is that now I can work on making a duplicate set.  I got 29 different cards in this lot, so now I can get going on a set.

I've found that Card Saver IVs work the best for these cards.  Is anyone using regular card sheets?  What else do people do to care for these packs?

  1. Nice pickup. Haven't started collecting packs yet. Maybe one day after I complete my 70's run of sets.

  2. I enjoy picking up random lots like this so if you ever start I might be a trading resource. I'm not much for selling unique Kellogg's stuff - trading is another story.

  4. Sox players from 1978? Slim pickings. Chet Lemon? The Roadrunner? Wayne Nordhagen? Jimmy Piersall?

  5. Correct with Garr. You won't believe the other two. Soderholm, who my son caddied for and Bannister - Alan. I imagine that the 1977 Southside Hitmen would have been included, but they were not on the White Sox in 1978.
