I had been reading on several blogs about the packs of old cards at Dollar Tree, and decided to pick some up.
I bought five packs of "Bringing Back The Oldies," which advertised itself as being all 1980s cards, with one guaranteed 80s star. That one guaranteed 80s star was Tom Seaver, 1984 Topps. Each time!
Each pack was about evenly split among 1984 and 1989 Topps and 1986 and 1988 Donruss. Fortunately I need a few of the 1984 Topps and most of the 1986 Donruss.
The five "Pieces of History" packs were more diverse, but also guaranteed one star. That one star was Jim Rice, 1984 Topps. Each time!
Still, of the 200 cards I got, 40 were cards I needed. So that's 160 more cards to trade, especially in 1984 and 1989 Topps and 1988 Donruss. So check your wantlists! Anyone need an 1984 Topps Tom Seaver or Jim Rice?
