    '84 Donruss FASC looks like it's gone as well. Crazy.

    What were the 87 Donruss boxes going for?

  • NJ80sBBCNJ80sBBC Posts: 414 ✭✭✭

    Awesome, hope you landed a great piece.

    This recalls the good old days of 2013/2014 where BBCE couldn’t keep boxes on the shelves.

    Snagged 83 and 85 donruss boxes. Both more than $100 less than the cheapest on eBay. Also grabbed 15 1984 donruss packs that I plan on opening.

    I bought 13 of the 87D. Leaving the other 13 for my bro in law. But he decided on 10 instead. Leaving the 3. Good to see a CU member grabbed them.

    That’s a great pickup. Love the 81T box design, especially when they are case fresh.

    I must have shaken something loose. Went from 11 fasc items to 55 to 39 in an hour.

    Didn’t take long for the 1984 Donruss FASC boxes to sell out @ $925!

  • rcmb3220rcmb3220 Posts: 856 ✭✭✭

    There is no price too high for 1984 donruss fasc!

    People will pay over 3k for a Mattingly PSA 10...I’d venture to imagine there are MUCH fewer FASC boxes than Mattingly 10s

    I believe I've told this story in some fashion before, but long before my best friend and I could ever drive, his mom would take us all over Missouri and Kansas to hunt down baseball cards. Card shows, garage sales, out of the way gas stations, antique malls and flea markets, old guys that sold cards in their living room, etc. To this day, I don't think she ever really cared about cards all that much, but just enjoyed getting out of the house and taking us around. She would buy cards though when she was with us, talking up and stocking up on "ROOKIES and SETS and UNOPENED BOXES!"(I can still hear her voice and the inflection and emphasizing), practically rubbing her purchases in our faces as some ultra desirable items. She kept them in the closet and dresser drawers in a spare bedroom, and the sole purpose of that, I believe, was that she would often use those items to then "bribe" us into doing yard work or taking our bikes to the grocery store for a few last minute but necessary items, or any other odd jobs.

    Hand on the Bible, she had somehow found and bought a factory sealed case of 1984 Donruss back in 1984. I can't tell you how many times we tried to find a big enough job to do for her that would get her to parcel out just one measly box, heck, just a few packs even. She always insisted that the case would never be opened, as that was for her "retirement". We got 86 Donruss, 87 Fleer, 89 Upper Deck from her without much trouble. Never any 84 Donruss.

    I've asked my friend occasionally over the years if she still had it tucked away in the closet, and he has assured me that she still does, along with all the other 80s and 90s stuff that accumulated from those days. She now sometimes dangles those other cards in front of the grandkids, to limited success. The 84 Donruss case remains untouched.

    I haven't been back to visit her in years to see for myself, but I send my friend text messages every so often, as I did today, when new price levels get reached. She's been retired for 10 years or so now, but now works maybe 16-20 hours a week as a greeter at Wal-Mart, I take it as just for something to do. I don't know if/when she ever plans to sell. It may just end up being an inherited item passed down to my friend.

    I just find the thought of that to be hilarious. All of us that salivate over the idea of getting, and perhaps ripping a FASC 1984 Donruss box, and there's an old lady in a small town somewhere that really doesn't care one iota about cards, that is still to this day just sitting on a whole sealed case.
