What was your first box break?

Do you remember your first box that you ever opened?  Mine was a box of 1998 Upper Deck Collector’s Choice baseball cards.  Up until that point I hand only opened single packs, but I received a sealed box as a gift and couldn’t wait to open it.  I completed the entire All-Star insert set and pulled a Cal Ripken, Jr Frontiers insert card.  At that time I went by “book value” and couldn’t believe that the Ripken was worth $40.00 which was the value of the whole All-Star set.  After the whole box break was over, there was one card that stood out to me.  It was a bobblehead card of Scott Rolen.  Have you ever seen these?  If you pop out the pieces you can create your own bobblehead.  I kept my Rolen together and still have it to this day.  I don’t think these bobblehead cards were inserted ever again, but they make for an interesting conversation piece.

  1. I’m pretty sure it was 1990 Donruss… back in 1990, when you had to pay actual money for them. 😦
