I was presented with a good hypothetical question. A 'what if' if you will. I will also pose the question to all of you as well and see what kind of response I get, if any. If I were presented with a box of 'vintage' cards would I keep it sealed or would I open it? Hmmmmmm.....
Max and I have this dream, well we have a few of them when it comes to cards, but one of the biggest is that at some point in our lives we hope that one or both of us has enough money to be able to get a box of '52 Topps and bust it, haha.
I was always told 'itll be worth more if you open it.' This thing has always bothered me. I am a firm believer that the packs were meant to be opened, so, if I were given a box of 'vintage' cards, HELL YES I would open them, haha.
Knowing my luck (and ask Pete), I would open the box and get every conceiveable Yankee card there is (except for the Mantle, lol). Knowing Max's luck, he would bust a box of 1952 Topps and STILL pull a David Wright card.
So, now I present the question to you... if someone presented you with a box of vintage packs, would YOU open them? Also, which set would you prefer? yes my choice would be a box of '52s, but I would love to bust a box of 54's and see 'fresh from the pack' 54's with the vivid colors and such.
