Box Break: 1993 Action Packed All-Star Gallery Baseball, Extras For Trade!

I've been looking to buy a box of Action Packed for a long time now. And back in December, Kruk Cards was having a sale on some of their eBay auctions and it was 30% off of an already cheap price, so I bit! I love what I got too.

All of the Action Packed brand cards that I've ever seen were made the same patented way. 1 piece of card stock folded over and the ends meet in the middle of the back of the card. The player image on the front is raised, just like I've seen on Topps Embossed from the 1990's. Because of the way they're made, it's pretty hard to find even pack fresh cards that would grade a 10. Most of them have a little foil blemish, or a bit of white showing on the black rounded edges. So keep that in mind if you're wanting any of these.

7 cards per pack. 24 packs per box. 24-karat leaf cards randomly inserted (I pulled one). I got really close to 2 full sets. So after the 1st set and keeping 1 of each extra hall-of-famer for my hall of famer collection, that leaves me with quite a few doubles. These cards are cheap so hit me up if you want anything. I'll even trade 1-for-1 for anything on my set needs list. Whatever. Here's a list of what I've got available with the team they're representing for you team collectors:

All from this scan are on the list above.

Here's an example of the back. I had always thought Garvey was in the hall until just recently!

And finally, we have the 24K gold foil insert. Not too much of a difference from the base set except the card number on the back is 12"G" and the foil on the front is... pure gold! I like this one so it would be tough for me to trade it away.
