my recollection is that the cello pack rested on top of the peanut butter, with only light contact, perhaps just a corner or edge of the cello slightly in the PB.

It's very cool that you actually remember it. I suppose it's possible that the packs could survive peanut butter-free since the flat surface of the peanut butter wouldn't promote much contact.

Pack #85: 1982 Cereal Premium Pack

 

This is another pack for which I'm not clear on the rarity. Not that many seem to come up on ebay, yet those that do don't seem to fetch huge money.

Pack #90: 1973 OPC 2nd Series Pack

 

It's OPC time. Original 1st and 3rd Series OPC unopened packs are by definition the rarest of all, because (to my knowledge) none of either series are known to exist.  The 2nd series was in the same category until several packs turned up in the mid-2000s. Most of these were in the possession of Kirk Daniel (and possibly Mike Crist).  Kirk still offers them for sale now and then (for a rather hefty price). Quite a toughie!

Pack #91: 1973 OPC 4th Series Red Pack

 


The 4th Series OPC pack comes with either a red or blue wrapper. It's unknown whether the blue wrapper was used for any of the earlier series, but the fact that the red one was still used for the 4th series suggests all the earlier series were probably red only.

The 1979-80 OPC re-issue packs are not very common either. The 4 sticker packs are the least common, and they get a bit more common with each new release.

The other interesting thing about the 1979-80 OPC re-issues is that one ad variation is twice as common as the other. I'm not remembering which is the rarer of the two right now, but will research it.

I'm not really an expert on current values, no clue on the sheet. On the 2nd re-issue box, my perception is that the value of that has come down a little in the last few years. There was a time when these were going for $500-600 in really nice shape, I don't think that's the case anymore. (I'm assuming you meant a full box.)

Yes, Dave... I'm really enjoying this thread too. Especially all the background info. You should really make an unopened pack handbook (even PDF document) with all this helpful & interesting info. It's a great reference.

The word “grape” translates to “raisin” in French?

apparently so. from Wiki:

"... in French, raisin means "grape," while a dried grape is referred to as a raisin sec, or "dry grape." ..."

those crazy French. They have a different word for everything.

Thanks Bill. I do think all the stories about "finds" are particularly cool, since I know I enjoy reading such stories from others.
