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!
1987/88 Fleer Basketball Wax Box (BBCE)
Even though the rookie crop is not as impressive as the 1986/87 year (Ron Harper, Detlef Schrempf, Otis Thorpe, Brad Daugherty, Nate McMillan, Terry Porter, A.C. Green, Dale Ellis), the true value which lies in this product is production run. Originally, 1986/87 Fleer Basketball did not receive acceptance by collectors; baseball was still king and basketball was a much smaller market. This forced Fleer to cut their production dramatically for the 1987/88 product. The proof is out there; how often do you see anything from 1987/88 Fleer Basketball in comparison to 1986/87?
Opportunities to pick up one of the toughest modern era wax boxes are becoming few and far between. This is a perfect opportunity to add an increasingly scarce item to any basketball or wax box collection!
36 packs per box; 12 cards, one sticker, and a stick of gum per pack
