I have lived in MD for all of my life (50+ years). I began collecting cards in 1980 and have collected for the past 40 years. Obviously, in 1982 Cal Ripken Jr.Rookie and other cards were huge in the industry--and have remained extremely popular ever since. So, anybody collecting sports cards wanted anything 1982 in their collection. I used to order hand-collated sets from the backs of magazines--whoever was cheaper. But, when you could find cards in stores (department stores--we didn't have Walmart in these parts for another 20 years), we would grab whatever we could find. All but this 1 (possibly 1 other, but I only recall 1) were shrink wrapped. Says, some in the hobby tried to say these don't exist. Some [most] tried to say they weren't sealed. In fact, there have been several articles over the years that J. While many in the industry believe that, many others who obtained these themselves know otherwise. I think it was a matter of the clerks just removing the outer packaging because the outer box was a common white, "set" box--the kind that hand-collated sets would be placed into.
I could be wrong but that is my recollection. I never paid that much attention to the outer boxes to see if they matched or not. I have photographed all 6 sides of the box as well as the picture with the lid removed. I didn't photograph the outer box, partly because it is just a plain white box and partly because I would have to block out all of my personal info. The picture showing the cards is intended to show that the cards have never been removed from the box or otherwise touched by humans.
There is no damage to the box or cards. This is a well preserved set that has survived for nearly 40 years. I'm not sure how to guarantee the cards are untouched, unsorted, or picked through but I will do so. It is not my intent to rip anyone off.
This set has never been touched and is more valuable remaining that way.
