Some early 2000's packs I found in the basement! Not bad for free I tell ya!LOL
So basically here is how it went. A long while back my father in law brought me 4 rubbermaid containers with stuff in them. Most of it was late 80s early 90s baseball unopened packs. BUT 2 of the containers had a bunch of early 2000's random packs. Mostly Football and Baseball but a little Basketball and Hockey too. I'll be posting trading threads on the appropriate forum when I get done busting all of it for trading. I did all the hockey and here is what I pulled from the packs! I'll post the better stuff here with scans then a link at the end to the bucket where all of pics are. A trading thread will be started soon also! Some really cool stuff if I do say so myself! Enjoy the show!

It makes you wonder. You can't really tell by looking at the front, but from the back, it looks like a mouse had a late night snack! lol
I guess at this point, it's hard to expect perfection when you find old boxes and packs. I bought some old 02-03 Pacific Exclusive a few years ago, and every card in every pack had terrible paint chipping along the borders. Just about every card in the box was ruined. Oh well, at least it wasn't a great box and I pulled something terrific in a damaged state. :P Still, I learned my lesson to be careful about older wax. It's sometimes nothing or nobody's fault but time.

I'll trade you one of my kids for those last three cards. Or if you want other cards or money, I could swing that too :D

Thanks for the comments guys! I LOVE the gold label stuff! If I thought I could get all the Class 1 and maybe Class 2 base cards I would do the set!LOL Probably not gonna find too many of them now a days though? I'll be posting a trade thread in the next 2 days and reply to anyone who was interested in any of them!
As far as the Naslund goes! Those inserts are 1 per pack and every one of them I got was the same on the back. The fronts aren't too bad but DANG the backs are just torn up! Too bad too cause the rookie version of Spezza would have been nice if it was mint!LOL Oh well cause for free I won't complain!
I am also in the process of busting a bunch of the same year stuff for Football, Baseball and Basketball! Pulled some killer stuff in basketball this morning in the way of odds. 2 jersey cards from 7 packs and one was 1:37 packs and the other was 1:57 packs. So I did well there. I'll be listing those in a few days when they are all opened on the appropriate forum. So if anyone is interested in that stuff I can send them a link to the trade thread when I get them all opened, Brad.
