Repacked.

Repacked cards are what they are, mostly junk wax, but there’s occasionally a diamond in the rough. There’s usually three configurations I’ve seen 5 cards for a dollar(waste), 20 cards for a dollar, or 30 cards for a buck. Unfortunately the 30 card repacks are harder to find, and I think they’ve discontinued them. :(. However, the 20 card repacks seem to have slightly better cards inserted. I recently opened a few and figured I would share them. The first three were 20 count repacks, and the last was a 30 count.

A dupe Tom Kelly, Frick Frack and Hack, some not quite junk, not quite vintage, and a few Upper Deck action shots. The miscut Astros probably has a destined home with Matt.

The most recent cards so far 2004 Fleer, and 2001 Bowman Gold. I always loved that 1995 Score design. Paul “Kia” Sorrento dupe, and a glowing dark back 1991 Topps Astros card. Headed the same way as the previous miscut.

2011 Panini EEE, and our oldest so far a 1982 Donruss. Oldest and newest in the same repack. This seemed to have a mix of old and new, not too many junk wax era cards. Gotta love that 2005 Donruss Joe Nathan dupe though, 3/3 on Twins. :).

Make that 4/4 with the Scott Erickson Bowman. Super glossy Catfish Hunter, some mid-80s “vintage” and a Fleer Gold. Lotta junk with this 30 count. Bob Welch OPC is yours Night Owl, if you want it.

Overall, this is what you can expect – a mix of this and that. The occasional older product, usually Donruss or Fleer, but more often 1988-1993 is what you’ll find, especially Topps and Upper Deck. My best pickup so far was a 1991 Chippah rookie with a gum stained back.
