Its not about value or nostalgia. Its about taking something highly collectable and removing it from the population. Its like cracking a high grade Amazing Fantasy #15 out of the tomb because you want to read it. You can buy an ungraded copy for much less and still have all the enjoyment of reading the same exact comic book without taking a high grade protected copy out of the population. You can buy lots of wax packs or partial boxes or really poor condition full boxes and have all the fun in the world opening packs. There is no need to take a good condition sealed box out of the population.

I've read about these blister packs at Rite-Aid, but I've never been able to find them at any of the Rite-Aids by me. The only store by me that I ever found Blisters was 5below, and they haven't had them since FB2. Its a shame, because I crave them for my sealed pack collection!
I visited a few Rite Aid stores in the last week trying to find older GPK series Blister Packs but most stores Trading Card sections are gone!! They mentioned all trading cards are being recalled and stores have to send them all back, they have been unsold for too long. They will be supplied with updated stock soon. NOOOOO!!
After finding 10 Blister Packs from various series (FB2, FB3, BNS1, BNS2, BNS3, 2014) at multiple locations I pulled this from a BNS1, for sure keeping this one, love it
They will disappear from Rite Aid really quick so not much time left. I decided to visit every Rite Aid where I work and pass on my way this week
I think it was originally built as a parade float, but ended up in his backyard as playground equipment for my cousins. I'll have to see if i have any pictures of it. It is no where near as detailed as your r2, but to a 5 year old in 1980 it was amazing!
G.I. JASON: people see ebay sales and get jaded, there's only a small bit of gpk stuff that goes for really high dollars. os1 and then the newer chase stuff

G.I. JASON: yeah i mean i felt good to get 200 for what i did, they were all spares, and none would make full sets.

gpkseller: ok, i gotcha.. thanks for the input. i won't take up any more of your time. Have a nice night. ok, just got your last post.. yeah, was thinking if i can make $25-$50 for an hours worth of time, it may be worth it... other than that.. nahhh

G.I. JASON: if you don't wanna fool with getting cents....toss them out. i just sold 5000 cards for 200bux. you won't retire off of them
Oct 19, 2014 21:31:28 GMT -5
G.I. JASON: ur not gonna get a lot for them, no matter what
Oct 19, 2014 21:30:58 GMT -5
G.I. JASON: i was saying list em all in one big lot
Oct 19, 2014 21:30:45 GMT -5
gpkseller: well... if most of them are worth $15... that's not worth the price of a stamp... doesn't seem worth it to sell individual...., right?
Oct 19, 2014 21:30:19 GMT -5
gpkseller: ur talking ebay, and mail them out one by one? fogedaboudit!
Oct 19, 2014 21:28:43 GMT -5
G.I. JASON: if you were gonna throw them out, whatever you'd get on ebay will be bonus money.
Oct 19, 2014 21:26:19 GMT -5
G.I. JASON: list them up at a penny starting bid and let em fly
Oct 19, 2014 21:26:07 GMT -5
gpkseller: None of these have enough value to ship separately, but if i listed what i had and the condition, and took some pics of selected cards, do people ever buy in bulk? Basically, I'm either going to sell the lot for $25+ or through them out.

gpkseller: Thanks GI! based on a website i saw... 2nd series are worth about $1 a piece if mint, mine are probably Very Good to Excellent. I have 34 of those, then ~ 50 series 3, ~125 series 4 and ~ 100 series 5. later series are probably near mint condition.
Oct 19, 2014 21:21:49 GMT -5
G.I. JASON: honestly. try to get pix of the 2nd series.....but they won't go for a ton i wouldnt think unless the majority of the 200 are os2. it may not be worth your time if all your looking is money with little to no time spent on moving them
