Just for giggles & grins, I opened one of my last few decks (purchased in 1981 or 82) just to see how bad they might be. They felt exceptional, considering these cards are more than 30 years old. They are made from a great stock that the USPCCo has not used for a very long time. As for the current prices these cards are fetching, well, to each his own. Isnt capitalism great? All that having been said; I need to remind everyone that there is to be no commentary on Marketplace ads. Questions may be asked and answered, but if you are not the seller answering, refrain from adding opinion to them.
