Get all the details on how that happened with The Baseball Card Exchange owner Steve Hart, a specialist on vintage wax and hear a little bit more from him about the show.

Nice chunk of money, what were the odds of pulling the jordan in a box

Comment by MICHAEL RUNYON

There are usually 3-4 Jordans per box. I have seen as low as 2, but that could have been a searched box and as many as 5, could have been a franken box or just bad collation. This stuff was junk wax to a lot of people so it really depends upon the source. It was not uncommon for people to buy partial boxes and combine them into 1 full one.
