Set Registry Spotlight

The Timmer Collection - The Number One Current Finest 1961-1989 Wax Packs - All Series Basketball Set
As more packs are opened over time, the scarcer they become. There is also no question that the advent of third-party grading gave collectors even more reason to risk opening vintage packs, which was once almost unthinkable. This particular basketball pack run covers three important decades of card production. It was during this time period that some of the most important basketball rookie cards ever made were released, including those of Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan. The 2012 winner for Best Unopened Pack Set of the Year holds a set rating of 6.79 for the 16 packs needed to complete the run. Click here to view.
