When I recently ordered my Gypsy Queen boxes I couldn't resist also picking up a Cooperstown box as this is a set I would love to complete and has some fun and nice cards in it. And so it happened that I had the pleasure to open up a cool Cooperstown box.....although....cool.....a bit disappointing was more like it. Out of the whole box I only got 10 new base cards, despite having only opened 1 box before, that's it. So clearly not great....on the flip side, it does leave me with a pile of Cooperstown cards so if anyone wants to set-up a trade let me know !! Now let's see what I got in the box, luckily it included an Auto card !!
First up a few of the new base cards, a cool Clemente as well as a guy I have seen before in my GQ box break: Carl Ripken Jr !!
The box also included some numbered parallels, Reggie Jackson and Satchel Paige, both numbered to /299.
The Cooperstown set does have some cool inserts, here's one of the BallParks and a Field General !
Cooperstown also has some sort of "silk"-like cards, I got one of Rickey Henderson.
All in all a bit disappointing that the box didn't help me a lot in completing the set but it did leave me with a pile of doubles so let me know if you are looking for a trade !!
