    Cool 1996 Ultra Series 2 Live Break

    Is there any interest in this? Just got a box in today and was curious is any 90's collectors would want to keep up with a live break or not. If I get a few replies I'll update this post. If not, I can post what came out of it.

    Figured I'd get more interest in this forum instead of the box breaks since there isn't a whole lot of interest over there Looking forward to this one!

    Thanks Papa. Started going and 3 packs in the nostalgia is already setting in. I remember getting a pack or two back in the day. Bets card so far is a Jeter "rookie". BTW, does anybody know who Wonderful Monds was lol? I've never seen a card of him before.

    Sounds fun! I went loose pack hunting and busted (36) '98 CC Series 2, (32) '97 Finest Series 2 and (5) '97 Finest Series 2 Jumbo today. Best hit was a Silver Refractor of Sandberg. Beat the pack odds across the board though.

    Good luck!

    That sounds like fun too man! Nice pull on the Sandberg!


    8 Packs in and so far the best card has been a Call to the Hall of Ripken. The Rawhide inserts look great too!

    Halfway through and I beat the odds and got a golden prospect of Bobby Abreu. One of the sweetest looking inserts from the mid 90's. These are listed at 1:72 or one every 3 boxes

    All finished. Definitely beat the odds on this one with two Gold Medallion inserts listed at 1:40 and the Golden Prospect. Overall just a fun break with 80% of the names barely or not ringing a bell at all. Here's a quick picture of the inserts:

    Believe it or not, his full name is Wonderful Terrific Monds III. I'm not kidding.

    I remember my first pack of series 1 of this at a flea market I pulled a Nomo Gold Medallion insert. I thought I hit a monster but was only worth a few bucks.
