Mint Condition

Mint Condition

Like many of our readers, the Uncrate staff at one point had an insatiable thirst for card collecting, snatching up rookie cards of our favorite — or the most valuable — players while continuing to buy pack after pack like a chain smoker on an endless bender. Mint Condition ($17) takes a look at the history of the baseball card industry, from their early inclusion in cigarette packs to the holographic, thick-stocked special cards of today and beyond. A must-read for anyone who used to be able to tell between a Topps, Fleer, and Upper Deck card of the same player from across the room.
