    That 93 finest was crazy when they first came out......I remember the packs were about $20.00 per pack! Best regards, David

    Anything form 2001. But not for how much the hits could be flipped for. I started collecting again in 2001 and saw so many amazing cards pulled from then that I couldn't afford to own or even open so it would be so much fun now.
    I still pick up cards form 2001 now just because of good memories from that first year of collecting again.

    I'd love to open up another box of 1993 Finest sometime!
    Around 1996, I saved up and went in with a friend on a box of '93 Finest. He was a big McGwire guy so the deal was we'd split the packs evenly, but he'd get all the McGwires and I'd get all the Thomases. I think we ended up with 1 McGwire, 1 Thomas, and 1 refractor that was in one of my packs...it was John Franco.

    I'd also love to get another box of 1996 Select Certified. (Currently working on getting a box for a decent price.) I bought one in the early 2000s and it was a lot of fun opening those to chase the mirrors...I ended up with a Jason Kendall mirror blue. If I get my mitts on another one, I may take a page from @BenG76 and open 1 pack per day. Or maybe 1 every time the Royals win - but that could take a couple of seasons to get through the box.

    Interesting. But not to open but to sell. I sold 2 cases of 86-87 fleer basketball. Chasing 90 fleer baseball Kevin mass and David justice. One of the biggest mistakes ever.

    1985 Topps Rack Packs.
    When I was younger, I would buy cards with earnings from odd jobs but never would buy a whole box. As a high school kid I convinced my parents that I wanted cards for Christmas and they bought a couple boxes. These were the first full boxes I broke.

    Sometime in 1993, I helped my dad re-roof our house and all I asked for was some packs of 1993 Bowman. I can't remember how many he got me, but it was worth it!!!

    That would be a fun one. We had the card shop when that came out and that's the only time my mom has ever gotten pack fever. We sat in the shop one day and busted a case. Dad about had a heart attack.
