Beardy has remarked to me on more than one occasion that he cannot understand how I have unopened wax ready to bust. He probably shares the majority opinion in that unopened wax doesn't usually last very long among collectors.
Well, here is a picture of my unopened wax boxes:
There are probably around 45-50 boxes to open. A few have some packs opened. The only one in this picture that is empty is the Turkey Red box in the top left corner. That is the box from the Turk Off. I usually would just throw it away but I got a call from Cooperstown so instead I'm sending it to the Museum.
Most is junk wax, or as Rob (VOTC) sometimes calls it, kindling. But it's still fun to open. Some of you out there have gotten some of the stuff pictured here, but the vast majority remains sealed.
There is some good stuff too. Some Chrome, Masterpieces. Turkey Red, Finest Threads...not too shabby.
I keep it because I refuse to get behind in my organization and filing. So, if I have cards to be filed I will not open new cards.
Don't judge me...that's the way I like to do it.
In fact, I'm all caught up right now. That box of 2009 Finest looks pretty good....
