Decided to do some rearranging and display the unopened boxes I have in the office. I’m trying to put together one of every type of box and pack from 2001 - 2012 Topps Heritage; hobby, retail, blaster. Doing the same with packs.

I’m also a sucker for late 90s/early 00s boxes, though I don’t have too many yet.

Not a lot for baseball. 2 boxes of 2002 Bowman Draft, 2 boxes 2004 Bowman Draft, a case each of 2006 and 2008 Bowman Chrome, and 6 boxes Donruss Elite Extra.

The moment has passed for the Bowman sets, just guessed completely wrong on those, but Elite has risen slowly in recent years, at least according to ebay pricing. It's funny, it was one of the first products to try to invade Bowman's turf with lots of prospects and none of the big names from then panned out. Mitch Einertson, Matt Tuiasospo, DeWitt, Sowers, Walker, Street, etc. RC autos of Yadi Molina seem to be the best cards now, along with early autos of Hunter Pence, Dustin Pedroia and a couple others, and some HOFers. Plus the various tiers of parallels that a surprising number of people like. I've been thinking of trying to do a break but never get around to it.

I have to say OP's Legends of New York box is sweet. I don't think I ever saw a blaster of those before. Must be pretty rare. That whole set seems underrated, but the appeal of the NL teams is pretty selective these days.

I am with the others. I can't really stand to see anything stay sealed. The only things I have sealed are because of how they look from the outside, not what might be inside. I really don't see the point to that, although I know it has become a huge market segment.

I do have a small collection of sealed, but nothing is pictured. I do have a lot of small boxed, retail and mail-in type sets that remain sealed. I have a few Donruss Preferred sealed Tins, mostly Frank Thomas and a gold Belle. I got some cheap boxes of 1993 Leaf (1 of each S1, S2 and Update) and I think 95 of 96 Leaf and left them sealed, because all of the boxes feature Frank Thomas on them and busting them probably would have been a losing proposition anyway. By now the cards inside are probably all stuck together. I also have some select unopened racks and cellos with Garvey showing. That is nearly the extent of my unopened aside from maybe a few 90s era random rack/cellos packs that I just tucked away for the heck of it.

Totally get the urge to never leave anything sealed. I cheat a bit though. I have a box of mixed packs that I can bust when I get the itch.
