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, 7 cards per pack
The 1988-89 O-Pee-Chee set consisted of 264 cards. The card fronts contain the player's name within a team-colored banner, position and team logo at the top. Bilingual backs had yearly and career statistics, number of game winning goals from previous season, playoff scoring records and highlights. Printed later than Topps, O-Pee-Chee was able to get Wayne Gretzky (120) in a Kings uniform in an arena setting. In the Topps set, Gretzky was holding a Kings jersey during a press conference. Key Rookies: Joe Nieuwendyk, Brendan Shanahan, Brett Hull, and Pierre Turgeon
