Next buy is a big one.

1988 Topps Yearbook Stickers w/ Superstar card backs. It's stickers, it's cards, it's mini...it's so many things!

1 or 2 boxes were good. 4 boxes was a blast. So, how about a case?

24 boxes, 48 packs, 5 cards per pack.

That's 1,152 packs, and 5,760 packs.

$82.27 delivered.

The Superstars set is 67 cards.

This is going to be crazy. Crazy fun!

Thankfully, my son shares his dad's love of the absurd. He was dancing around the kitchen when I showed him what I'd bought us.

I think those, if not all of those Topps mini card/stickers in that time frame, have a number of variations. You'll find a specific card back shown with a multiple of different stickers or vice versa.

Interesting, I haven't really even been looking at the stickers themselves much!

Some early notes:
  • This is a LOT of packs
  • These packs have GUM in them. 30+ year old gum.
  • I remember when this gum was new. It wasn't even good then.
  • The gum stained the top card in each pack, so those will go to the shredder
  • That still leaves us 4,600+ cards
  • The gum in the tightly wrapped packs have also warped the cards slightly
  • I think the warp will go away if I put the cards tightly in a box
  • 4 boxes in, and I have 7 complete sets, plus well on the way to several more
  • These are so old, the stickers aren't sticky anymore.
  • Good thing I don't have 100 30 year old sticker yearbooks I was looking to fill
  • These plastic wrappers are a bit of a pain. Next buy may need to be REAL wax packs
  • This is gonna take a while!
