Repack Wax HO!!!!!

Posted by houstoncollector on February 22, 2009

I fell victim to the lure of repack wax at Wal-Mart the other night.  I saw a 16-pack box Gems of the Game which lures you in with possible hobby wax inside (up to 2007 UD Black and 2007 Triple Threads), but in over 99% of the boxes will be full of 2006-2008 retail wax with a few 80s and early 90s products.  Still, it had a retail value of more than the $20 I paid, so it wasn’t all bad.  Video below:

Finally, I want to bring the poll back up.  Right now the consensus is that we can do group breaks, depending on the price, with the leader being a case of 2008 Ultimate Collection Football with ‘Something Else’ and 2009 Topps Heritage Baseball in second place.  However, as between the three of them, there’s only seven votes, I’d like to give this some more publicity.

If you have other options, leave a comment.  I’d like to make a decision as to what to bust by the 1st of March, and hopefully have it sell out and have product in hand by the 15th.  On the subject of product, the group break has gone out for everyone except the three people I had to ask for addresses.  Those packages will go out on Wednesday.  Also, the package for Joe Collector is on the way, and I should have one ready for Mario in the near future.
