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!
1980/81 Topps Basketball Wax Pack (Popped Seal)
8 cards and 1 poster per pack!
Reed recently bought an old store inventory in North Carolina, and in it were 20 unopened packs of 1980/81 Topps Basketball- with the Larry Bird/ Magic Johnson rookie card. However, several of the packs have what is known as a "popped seal", where the wax was heated and melted to create a seal but has loosened and/or flaked over time, causing the seal to be broken. The packs are 100% authentic and unsearched; nobody has ever attempted to open any of these packs- they just ccant be considered sealed since they have been "popped".
If you're looking to take a chance at pulling a Bird/MAgic rookie (Mathematically a 1 in 22 pack shot) this is your opportunity to do so at a significantly discounted rate.
