Not All Boxes Are Created Equal

As part of my organization process I am trying to move my mini-PCs in to one box together instead of keeping them in larger storage boxes and separated. This way I can them all in a single 1500-ct box and everything is there. So I grabbed a empty box I had sitting in my closet and have been using that and hadn’t noticed I had writing on the side. Apparently I have had this box for 25 years, back in the early 90s I was a set builder this was my 1993-94 Skybox & UD basketball box. Surprisingly after 25 years and 9 moves this box is still in great shape.


  1. And the box set you back a whole $1.95!

  2. The question is, are there are cards from those sets still in the box?
    I store all of my cards in boxes and still use the boxes I started getting in the 1990s.

    1. The cards are long gone. When I got divorced from my first wife in 1997 she threw away 3/4 of my collection. Then in the mid-2000s I donated many of my base cards to a local children's hospital.

  3. Who says cardboard from the early 90's hasn't gone up in value? I'm thinking I pay at least $3.50 to $4 for my shoe boxes these days.
