    Great to see you dusting off the video camera Jeff. Not that I really approve of your delinquent activities. :grin:

    Not surprised the dark sheep of the unopened world is looking forward to the carnage that awaits.

    Thanks, Mike! Tim just sent me a PM offering a dozen or so 70s rack packs from his own collection. I was wondering if you'd be interested in donating as well?

    There's a better chance of Mike not wearing socks at the National than of that happening, LOL..

    Always loved your videos, looking forward to new ones. You taking requests? ;)

  • galaxy27galaxy27 Posts: 2,307 ✭✭✭✭

    The PG withdrawals have been excruciating. I desperately need those sound effects back in my life.

    Very much looking forward to this, and great to see you posting again brother!

  • SumoMenkoManSumoMenkoMan Posts: 1,185 ✭✭✭

    I'm looking forward to more as well. They are definitely a highlight of these boards.

  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,747 ✭✭✭

    @Nikklos - My job is to entertain and inspire my fellow collectors ;)

    @baz518 - Thank you for the love! And I am definitely open to requests.

    @galaxy27 - I appreciate the warm welcome back, my friend. It's great to see you again!

    @SumoMenkoMan - The friends I've made through the CU boards are a big reason I'm doing more of these videos. There are some great people here, including some true experts in the field. While I'm just a collector (definitely not an expert), I love sharing these rips with you guys. Hopefully I can bring a few minutes of entertainment and a smile to your face.

    Looking forward to these...i too love ripping old packs...I've been really busy this year and haven't posted any results recently, but have accumulated a nice pile of gradeable cards along the way...best of luck!

  • PorkinsPorkins Posts: 479 ✭✭

    Ohhhhhhhhhh....

    Cha-ching!!!

    Awesome news! Great to hear you're back, Jeff. You still have a few to knock off that checklist!

    Good luck!!

  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,747 ✭✭✭

    @MantleFan23 - Yes! That was definitely one of my favorite rips. I should mention that I have another 1980 Topps basketball rip lined up as one of my next round of videos.

    @pjb103183 - That's one of the benefits of these sort of high-risk pack rips, you typically come out with some gradeable cards whether the star power is there or not. I hope you'll share your rips on the boards, as well.

    @porkins - Thanks for the support, buddy! I still have four of the five "Pull Goals" left. So I've got my sites set on knocking a few of those out.

    Thanks for watching, guys!

    @pjb103183 - I'm obsessed with 80s classics, so I'm always looking for a way to tie them in. Good catch!

    @dennis07 - It started off a little sketchy. Thanks for checking it out.

    Nice first break back, Jeff

    Good luck, and keep 'em coming!

  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,747 ✭✭✭

    Guys - thank you so much for the kind words. My plan is to try to post a new video every week, as long as I can.

    @lahmejoon - Thank you! Not everyone likes the sound effects, so I'm happy to hear when people do.

    @grote15 - I really appreciate it, Tim! Deep down inside, I think you're a secret pack ripper.

    @Porkins - Thanks, buddy! Many more to come!

    The sound effects are awesome!

    Watching, always watching.

    Jeff, great reboot for the site. While I still don't condone with type of activity, it is nice that you share with the rest of the Collectors Universe. For 1978, and Tim can correct me if I'm wrong, most of the big hits are in that first section as you saw in the video. Only Ryan in the middle and, of course, Trammel/Molitor in the far section are not in there.

    Mike - I keep it 10 feet away from my desk in my office and have zero desire to rip it open. Have always been that way. Being a huge Bench fan it is a favorite of mine. Would love to find a 1976 rack with a Bench showing - favorite card as a kid growing up.

    I agree, the 1976 Bench card is my personal favorite too. That would be cool to find a 1976 rack with that one on top. I was able to get a 1974 rack with Seaver on top which is my favorite card of him with an assist from Dave (70ToppsFanatic). Good luck on your quest.

  • Thanks for reincarnating this series, certainly enjoyed it back in the day, and look forward to the new rips!

  • secretstashsecretstash Posts: 893 ✭✭✭

    Do you normally rip on similar days each week or just random times? I subscribed and am ready to see some new gems unleashed!

  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,747 ✭✭✭

    @Time4aGansett - Thanks for watching the videos! I'm having fun doing them again.

    @secretstash - The goal is to release a new video each week (likely on Wednesdays). Speaking of - I smell a new post coming...

    Thanks....opened several boxes of those back in 1984. Always liked the 1984 design, and for the most part, the cuts were clean....unlike the first few years of Donruss baseball.

  • Big80sBig80s Posts: 2,747 ✭✭✭

    @rookiewax - how was our luck with the boxes you opened? Did you average on Mattingly per box?
