Bustin’ Wax: 1979 O-Pee-Chee baseball cards by Chris Olds

Beckett Baseball‘s Chris Olds opens a 31-year-old pack of 1979 O-Pee-Chee cards — so you don’t have to — in what we hope will be the first in an occasional series of vintage pack breaks called Bustin’ Wax.

What will he find inside? Watch and find out …

While he didn’t admit it in the video, this is the oldest pack that Olds has ever opened. (That’s excusable since he started collecting in 1987, we guess…) His previous-oldest was a pack of 1982 Topps.

We want to know — when did you start collecting and what’s your oldest ripped pack?

Tell us below.

Started collecting in 1988, mainly Topps and even splurging on some Donruss. Have to admit that my oldest pack ripped is 1986 Donruss! My Grandmother had bought me the pack for $15 trying to chase the Canseco rookie! I know..its sad.
