  • Figures, all of the cards are centered pretty good except for the MJ.

    Rodman and Stockton in the same pack? I think you did ok.
  • MBMiller25MBMiller25 Posts: 6,057 ✭✭
    Nice Pack, Sorry about the centering on the Jordan, but you cant be unhappy with that pack. Awesome, Thanks so much for sharing.

    Nice pack, great star power: Jordan / Stockman / Rodman / 'nique.

    Thanks guys. I have 27 packs left, but I figured I would take advantage of the special and get them slabbed. I have 3 packs with the Jordan Sticker on the back, and 3 with the bird sticker on the pack.

    Wow! Can you imagine ripping that pack at a show in the early to mid 1990s? Let's see, Jordan was $50, Stockton and Rodman were about $25 apiece, Thomas was about $10, and Wilkins was about $5. Even the checklist would have been $5-$10.
  • jswietonjswieton Posts: 2,870 ✭✭✭
    Wow! what a pack.
  • nam812nam812 Posts: 10,536 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I count 13 cards + sticker. Either you got an extra card in your pack, or the Jordan card was added by you to create some wow factor.

    Yep. I was thinking the same thing.

    Actually I think he added the Joe Klein card, not the Jordan.

    the Frank Brickowski counts as the "stick of gum".

    Or the Mark Eaton card would count as a stick of gum. And that's coming from me a big UCLA fan.

    He obviously has the sequence too and kept the hot pack...and then spiced it up a bit more.

  • The new guy is correct. Rodman and Stockton are about 4 cards apart in the sequence. However, the Jordan would be nowhere near this sequence which would explain why the Jordan is the only card with bad centering.

    Wow your credibility is about zero on these boards now!

    Does the Jordan glow in the dark?
  • it's a sad day when you have to fake a rip... way to start the new year off on a good note!

    << <i>Does the Jordan glow in the dark? >>



    This is exactly what happens when people who are hobby-ignorant invade these boards. Uh, no-- the Jordan does not glow in the dark. But the was a cross-company promotion between Fleer and OPC whereby you could exchange these Jordan cards for (cha ching!) Bernie Nichols RC's on a one-for-one basis.

    Hope this helps,
    Guy

    Apparently you don't realize that popularity on this forum equals happiness in life. Take Lawnmowerman for example LOL!!! imageimage

    I'd like to take this opportunity to really tell you all how funny I find it that a guy would hatch a scheme to convince complete strangers that he pulled a $25 card out of a pack. Good times.
  • jswietonjswieton Posts: 2,870 ✭✭✭
    Why did he find the need to add that Jordan, it was a great pack to begin with? I would be thrilled to pull a well centered Stockton and a Rodman in one pack.

    this might be the saddest post i ever read on these boards. I think scamming is less pathetic then posting a fake rip. Faking a death even falls slightly above this post. You have hit rock bottom my friend.

    You should amend this, Roger, to say 'faking an '88 Fleer basketball rip'. It's one thing to bust a '69 pack and sneak in an Alcindor; quite another to bust this pack and sneak in an OC third year Jordan.

    The big question here is not- Why did he fake the rip? Why did he not realize that most board member can count beyond 12? How sad must his real life be ?

    THE BIG QUESTION IS... mmync have you shipped my Ted Williams pack yet?

    I think the answer is here, in his follow-up post:

    Thanks guys. I have 27 packs left,

    He's looking for some offers. Apparently, this didn't work.

    So out of a fresh box of 36 packs he took out 3 packs with the Jordan, 3 packs with the Jordan Sticker, 3 packs with the bird sticker, and now he wants to slab the other 27 and most likely sell them on eBay to buyers who think they may have an actual chance at pulling a Jordan.
