Spade Racing Opens Classic “Blaster Boxes” and Premiere Sets

Recently I acquired a collection of Nascar cards from the past thirty years.  Most of it was unopened “Blaster Boxes” (those things you see near checkout at big box stores) as well as a few early-90’s “Premiere Sets”.  Lets open them and see what’s inside!

Tracks 2007 Box 3 Part 2—Late period Sterling, playing out the string, and a CART thing

FIRST LOOK: It kinda stunk that Sterling Marlin didn’t get to end his career racing for a winner.  On the plus side, its better than Rusty Wallace retiring a contender and then whining about it for years on end.

TO THE BACK: Speaking of drivers at the ends of their careers, I still have no idea why Ricky Rudd came back after a year off to race for a declining Robert Yates Racing.  Maybe he really, really, REALLY liked Snickers?

SAY WHAT: “For the last time I’m NOT Paul Tracy!”

RATING: 1 side skirt out of 10
