    Here's the video.
    It was a 20-card cello pack.

    I am a lifelong fan of the 55B set, but I've never looked into unopened material. Always figured it would be nearly impossible to find and ridic expensive when I did. But I couldn't figure out how they had 20 spots for the break. I never even heard of them having cello packs. Learn something new every day.

    The other cards:
    Rip Repulski
    Tom Morgan
    Milt Bolling
    Jerry Coleman
    Steve Gromek
    Junior Gilliam
    Ernie Banks (2nd year, really nice if centered a bit high)
    Marv Grissom
    Gus Bell (pulled for ESPN's Darren Rovell)
    Johnny Antonelli
    Duane Pillette
    Paul Giel
    Stu Miller
    Tom Morgan (again)
    Milt Bolling (again)
    Jerry Coleman (again)
    Steve Gromek (again)
    Junior Gilliam (again)
    Johnny Podres

    The PSA pop report on the set is very tough on anything over 8. At least a couple of these pulled have zero 9s. I don't think most of the ones they pulled would hit that mark, but they're all pretty sharp.

    That's a lot of hookers and blow. I mean, good for the guy who owns it, congrats!

    This card is probably worth just shy of 100k

    That's a whole other can of worms.

    Seems like I've seen more tweets than not that the grade was a tad high. I suppose the only thing that will matter is what the high flier pays for the card (the more they think it's really a PSA 9, the more they'll bid on it).

    I got a good long look at the card in hand. A PSA 9 is a fair grade. Honestly I thought it had a shot at a 10. Card was CLEAN

    I thought it looked pretty off center.
