So last week I decided to search Ebay and see if I could pick up an unopened box of wax. What I found instead was these beauties.....
Thats right 6 unopened rack packs. The auction started at $9.99 with free shipping. I bid $9.99. As you can see I won the auction. I know what you are saying to yourself right about now.... and yes I probably could buy a complete set for $9.99 + shipping but that is not what I did. I bought 6 unopened rack packs. What can I say? I am an addict.
Here are the highlights of the 1986 Donruss break!!!! Wish me luck!!!!

"OIL CAN" Boyd- the glasses plus the embroidered jacket = Awesome
