Trivia

  • Cards marked as SP (short printed) from 648-660 are more difficult to find than the other 13 SP's in the lower 600s. These 26 cards listed as SP were apparently pulled from the printing sheet to make room for the 26 Bonus MVP inserts. Six of the checklist cards were done two different ways to reflect the inclusion or exclusion of the Bonus MVP cards in the wax packs.
  • Distribution
    Wax: 36 packs per box, 15 cards and 1 puzzle piece per pack. 20 boxes per case. Six boxes per retail display.

    Cello: 24 packs per box, 36 cards and two puzzle pieces per pack (MSRP: $0.99)

    Rack: 24 packs per box, 45 cards and 3 puzzle pieces per pack. Three boxes per case.

    Blister: 72 cards per blister. 48 blister packs per case.

    Factory Sets
  • The card front border design pattern of the factory set card fronts is oriented differently from that of the regular wax pack cards. No premium or discount exists for either version.
  • Set features the Rookie Cards for 2 Hall of Famers Roberto Alomar and Tom Glavine.

Looks like I am not the only one that bought a pack of these as their first pack of baseball cards. Like everyone else I was looking for my favorite player, which at the time was Ken Oberkfell. So I was more lucky than most about getting my favorite player. Then he got traded to the Pirates, and I changed to my favorite player to another 3rd baseman Mike Schmidt. He is still my favorite player even though he retired just after I started collecting his cards. For my 40th birthday my cousin who is another card collector got me his rookie card, which is tied for first for the best birthday present ever.

Overproduced, ugly and minimal Rookie value.

First pack of cards I ever opened, thus marking my entry into collecting just as the junk wax era was really taking off! Still nostalgic about this set though. Looking through my cards I can probably pick out the ones from that first pack because they're pretty beat up.
