Thanks AG, Johnny and Blair! I have always loved and collected Sawchuk and Howe, so it is pretty exciting to get a Sawchuk RC in pretty decent shape! This is definitely my favorite card in my collection.

I am looking for a bit of advice. I just purchased 6.5 boxes (157 total packs) of 1976-77 Topps Basketball. They were at a price I could not refuse. I don't collect basketball but I would like to trade or sell them to obtain baseball cards. Do you have any feedback or advice as to how I should approach this? Should I open the packs and grade the cards individually,sell the boxes intact or sell the packs individually? I have never done this with unopened material and obviously hope avoid a potentially costly mistake. I doubt such a deal will ever fall into my lap again. Any insight or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

IMO '76 is still too late to make any money busting em open and grading them. Keep them in packs and either hold them for a few years, or sell them individually.

Love that Sawchuk! Picked up a few 1968-74 HOF Bookmarks (including Mikan), a James Worthy pre-RC and a Karl Malone RC.
