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!
48 packs per box, 10 cards per box
Because Topps did not issue a set for a two-year period, this 396-card set marks the first time since the pre-war era that O-Pee-Chee manufactured hockey cards without competition. Card fronts displayed the player's name, team and position at the top. The backs had yearly statistics, highlights and a section devoted to team records. A team logo appeared at the bottom. Highlight cards, team scoring leaders cards, league leaders cards and In-Action cards were contained within the set. The cards were essentially in team order. However, text on front was updated to reflect off-season trades.
