36 Pack Wax Match: Pack 25

The Stage has been set. The Match is underway. Who will come out on top? There’s only one way to find out.

Keep going, and open that twenty-fifth pack!

As we dive into this pack, we're coming off a tie in pack 24. Who will grab the momentum with this pack? Let's see!

Hall of Fame +1
I can't decide if this is the best picture on a card, or the worst. On the one hand, as an action shot, there's practically no action. But, as a piece of art, the story it is trying to tell s deeper than an ocean. Either way, it's worth one point and a quick lead for 1988.

But, that's where the scoring ends for this pack. Will one single point hold up?

Yankees -2
Well, that's not the best start. Nor the best card. Was this really the best Fleer could do?

Unfortunately for 1990, that's the end of the scoring! Incredibly, the single point from 1988 is enough!

    1. Especially if Brett's bat is layered with pine tar!
