Found it. Not sure if they continued to include the entire set, but they were through at least Almanac #5 (Beckett). It checklists them by series. The series number is the last number in the control number from your labels. For example, in my picture, it's series 21. The guide is extremely handy for determining who is inside those unopened packs.

You have a small fortune there my friend!!! 78 has the Magic Johnson, 77 for Gretzky and 74 is the Bird packs, but most series above the mid 50s are listed higher $$. 103 is the last series they show, assuming that was it and the series died.

If you are planning to part with any of them, I'd love a shot at 34 & 67. These contain the Steve Garvey cards. Actually, I believe I already have 67 as it should have Garvey on top, but would like 34 for sure.

Each pack has a slip of paper enclosed with information that will say something like "Sports Cards TM Control No. 03 005 87". I notice the last card in the pack will have the same control number at the bottom and be a -24. So I assume the packs go by these control numbers. Each pack has a mix of sports, so it's hard to guess what might be in any package in particular. Any experts out there for these cards? I'm hoping someone might have created an Excel spreadsheet with a list of the card numbers/pack listing.

Along with the cards in packs, there were several Sportcaster Digest mini magazines. I have never seen these. They included No. 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, and 15.

The group included the following unopened packs (All say "Printed In Italy"):

Most of the sets (but not all) are shown here. If you need any others, let me know and I can assist.

I may be interested in Magic but if it's truly Mint you should consider grading it, as it's worth a few hundred as a 9 and who knows as a 10.

Thanks for the link! That's what I was hoping to find. I may have to get some of these graded. Or would they be worth more unopened?

There is always a market for unopened products, as the chance of something mint inside is very powerful. I think the larger size of these hurts them somewhat as some people just don't do anything outside of the 2.5 x 3.5 format, but there is a market for them all the same.

I wonder if anyone is sitting on an entire set unopened? You have a significant start there, but filling in the holes at this point may be quite a challenge.

I did notice that the link is missing information. I think each series has 24 cards, but they do not have all cards for each year listed. The full list is definitely in the Beckett Almanac.

I thought the same thing at first, but there is a "more" button after they list the first 15, and the other 9 of that series are then listed.

I would think the value of unopened is more than you would get if you got lucky and got a 9. People world wide collect these and if you get even a couple fierce collectors bidding you will do well. Imho
