The wrapper on mine was folded so tightly, it wasn't possible to "peak" at the card without unfolding it to the point it would be clear it had been opened. As much as I tried to identify the card through the wrapper, I couldn't. Plus, I was younger and foolish.

You can be tempted to crack some of your other vintage wax...?

I once opened a 1952 pack. I'm still mad at myself....

Default 1955 Topps unopened cello pack

I opened a 1955 topps cello pack around 15-20 years ago there were 24 cards----I can still remember going to my sports room and with a little penknive opened the pack carfully----one of the first cards i saw was a Roberto Clemente RC---then Yogi Berra---Duke Snider--and yes another Roberto Clemente Rookie---all the cards were near mint-mint---I would think the clementes would be at least a 8---there was not grading then----I had the pack at a Ed Keetz show in Albany for $1500 with no takers---on the way home, I thought what the heck, even if I get all commons, they are still worth $20 each---the pack was high numbers----it was the greatest pack I opened---I sold all the cards and kept the better Clemente until a friend offered me $2600 plus tickets to Aerosmith (and also to meet them)--he did the lighting for Aerosmith---I also gave Joe Perry a Larry Bird Rookie for his son at the concert.----I hate to tell the story because most people would think (oh yea--right---2 Clementes in a pack---but it did happen.

I just hope it is a legit unopened pack so I at least have a chance of pulling a HOF card.

Default I have opened 1960 packs

When I was working part-time for John Broggi back in the day, he got part of the Alan Rosen Paris Tennessee find of 1954 and 1955 Bowman packs and 1960 Topps packs.

I opened one 1960 Topps pack, pulled a Mantle and quit.

At the time, that pack was 28 years old

Default Unopened

I have a few boxes of unopened 1984 Topps lying around, and in the spirit of the evening I thought I'd open a few packs. First card ... Dale Berra. So much for nostalgia.

Maybe a year or so ago, perhaps two, I found unopened packs of 1982 Topps in one of those vending machines that sell packs of cards. Usually the oldest I'll see is '86, and there are plenty of '88s and '89s.

Anyway I bought a few of those '82 packs - I think they were $1.00 apiece, maybe they were $2.00 - and I opened 'em - and I pulled a "Future Stars" Cal Ripken rookie.
