I'm sure what he should do is keep or sell the unopened pack. But I'm not sure I could resist the temptation. I think it would also depend on if you could figure out what series the pack is, and if the Mantle or Yaz rookie has a chance to be in the pack.

DO NOT OPEN. Cards inside are worth $12. Cards in pack are worth hundreds or thousands.

I told him a gambling man opens it. Safe play is to sell the graded pack.

Fairly long odds. Not a gamble I'd take personally

Default 1960 Pack

If it`s me, no way I`m going to open that pack. Is there also mention of some sort of drawing for a T 206 Cobb involved with these redemption cards ?

You could always press the front and back of the pack tight to see if you can make out the names on the top and bottom.
