Thrift Treasures 106: Hello, Holograms

The randomness that are thrift stores are what I enjoy so much.  And among the random sometimes I find some odd items, such as this, a 800-card count box filled with standard 1980s cardboard and a small stack of late 1990s SPX cards.

One look at the box and you might find yourself closing it and moving on quickly.  But with the stack of SPX cards was really appealing given the $2.99 price tag on the box.  

We’ll get to the hologram hotness in a bit. But I’ll show the other stuff. There was a sizeable brick of 1983 Topps and among the highlights were two decent looking second-year Cal Ripken Jr. cards.

There also was some 1993 Bowman, which yielded some rookies for my
collection and a second-year Mariano Rivera.

Talk about random. Here’s a pair of Bill Belichick cards.

And now the holograms. I LOVED the hologram-based SPX designs of the lates 1990s. They were distributed one card per pack and they were pricey upon release, somewhere in yhe $4-$6 per pack range if memory serves me right. well, this stack of SPX was just commons. It was star cards and parallels of the same. Fantastic!
