Reed Kasaoka is the head buyer of the Sports Division at Dave & Adam's. His primary responsibility is traveling all over the country, buying private collections out of people’s closets, bedrooms, attics, basements, garages, and storage units, as well as complete inventories of show dealers, shop owners, autograph dealers, and distributors. Reed comes up with some amazing finds – rarely seen unopened boxes, quality graded cards, certified autographed memorabilia, and much more.
We have tagged all of his acquisitions as a Reed Buy so you’ll know where to look first for all of his deals. Almost every item is “one-of-a-kind” – so when you see something interesting, don’t hesitate, because there are likely many other collectors who are thinking the exact same thing!
2004 Topps 1st Edition Series 1 Baseball Hobby Box (Damaged Box)
20 packs per box, 10 cards per pack
Each card in this box is stamped '1st Edition'. Key rookies include Anthony Lerew, Dioner Navarro, David Murphy, Kyle Davies, and Zach Duke.
Each HTA case contained as a bonus a 1st Edition waxbox which contained 20 packs of ten cards. Each card coming out of these special packs is foil-stamped with a circular "1st EDITION" logo -- not unlike what was common with CCGs of the era. 1st Edition packs contained only parallels -- no other inserts or parallels. Unlike the Gold and Black parallels, all 732 base cards are available as 1st Editions.
THIS BOX CONTAINS ONLY SERIES 1 1ST EDITION PARALLEL CARDS.
