Wax Pack Revolution: Baseball Edition

Over the last few years, I've been collecting old wax & foil packs of trading cards from the 80s & 90s. When you would buy one of these packs you would tear it open and throw away the wrapper. Never giving it a second thought. Seeing these again brings back memories of feeling the slick paper in your hands, seeing the simple artwork and the smell of bubble gum. In celebration of the return of Major League Baseball after the great lockout of 2022, let's dive into a few of these packs that I have on display and celebrate a few of my favorite players from my #1 team...the NEW YORK METS!

Thanks for taking a minute to look at some old packs of baseball cards and humoring my die hard Mets fandom. I hope whoever you cheer for has a great season and you can enjoy the game to the fullest! If you feel like checking out the classic 1985 broadcast of the Mets vs. Cubs game, feel free to watch the Youtube video below. Now let's PLAY BALL!!!


  1. Agreed. The wax pack covers are pieces of art themselves.

    1. There are so many great ones out there! Wish i didn't throw them all away!!

  2. Even though I spent way too much money on them at the time, I still really like '92 Stadium Club wrapper design. And the addition of the old Kodak logo makes them just that much more interesting.

    1. Yes! I remember that Kodak logo being a huge deal!
