Nostalgic Box Break: 1996 Collector's Choice Series One (Part Three)
Oh my gosh, could I be finishing this box within a week?? This is pretty insane, especially for me!
We've already cracked two thirds of this nostalgically colorful and frenzied box of '96 Collector's Choice. Onto the last half of the box. I want to point out here that this box didn't have any chance for a hit, an auto, a game-used, or anything that'd really get me money. I just ripped it because it's a fun rip. Nothing more.
Cal Ripken in a very nice full bleed shot, hitting a liner.
Lenny Dykstra is just rounding out his career as a Phillie.
Wade Boggs is looking pretty solemn in this well-posed shot as a Yankee.
Jeff Bagwell, who may end up joining Dawson in the HOF, on a Game insert.
As much as I love that Eddie Murray card, again, it's not really a tribute if Murray would end up playing 2 more season.
Barry Bonds' Game Card credits him for a One-Base Error. Oh, he made an error alright.
Al Leiter may be the most likable of the three.
That was a fun box. Lots of great 90's stars, lots of guys who could be Hall of Famers tomorrow, and lots of great 90's memories. I'll see if there's anything 90's-esque that I could post before I regain things to write about.
