Fast forward 35 years later, their supplies and food was running low so someone would have to come above ground and take a risk to get new products. That was supposed to be Calvin, up until he was ill from stress from his one visit to the surface. So his son Adam would have to venture out in a world he had never met.....
This segment takes a look at products that may have been hidden in a underground fallout shelter for over 20 years and now just coming back out to be rediscovered....by me. Guess you can call me Adam even though my name is Matt. These are products I opened when I was first collecting and is a Part Of My Past, but may not have a memory or a Origins story to attach to them. Most products I post on here will, but some won't and those will be covered in this new segment.These products will be between the years of 1995-1999 only.
Let's just hope my experience with these breaks is better than Adams first visit to the surface.
So let's take a Blast From The Past with a one pack break of 1995 Topps Series 1 baseball!
Believe it or not, I landed this pack for less than a $1 in a pack lot that I paid a total of $4 for. When I can take a Blast To The Past with a break like that I will take it all day long. Back in 1995, I busted a lot of Topps product for hockey and football. I did bust a few packs of the baseball in both Series 1 and 2 in which both you will see on here but not much. Which makes these packs more of a Blast From The Past than an Origin.
Let's take a look at how I did.
The base card set for Series 1 has 396 cards with a couple of subsets and guys like Wade Boggs and Fred McGriff on the checklist.
With so many cards in this pack, I broke out only the best players and not all like I usually do with this series. It would take forever to get all of those posted and it would take up the entire blog to get it posted on.
Jim Edmonds played for 17 seasons and was an underrated player in my opinion. Didn't get the respect for what he did. He played for six teams but I best remember him in California with the Angels. He had a .284 average and 393 career home runs.
Overall, I think I got my .80 worth. Probably with the Griffey card alone even though I have it and will pass it along to another Griffey collector.
