1977 was when I started collecting with Star Wars as well as baseball and football. I picked another one of these up...just 34 to go for a full box!

Yes! I did some Star Wars too, and then moved to baseball in the spring of 1978. Damn I am getting old, lol.

Love the wax packs...please don't stop!

Great packs all around. I'm guessing this came from one of those fun bags, but they really had three card wax packs in there? Very cool must be a rare wax item.

Yes, I assume it came from a fun bag. I also didnít realize that they only contained three cards. This is the first one Iíve come across graded, so had to have it.

Awesome Jackie card. I just picked up a similar card with near perfect centering and nice registration and similar corners. I just sent to PSA so this gives me hope.

Those Star Wars packs look like they are a pretty penny after seeing some in lower grades on the bay right now. Now you have me itching to pick up at least one, awesome pieces.

Here are my latest unopened pickups. The football cello has HOF'er Sam Huff on the back, while the baseball cello has a Hank Aaron RB on the back!
