Introducing 1988 Topps Traded Tiffany (part 2)

This is part 2/4 of a teaser series for the 1988 Topps Traded Tiffany set we'll crack and display on this blog as soon as we finish the regular 1988 Topps set.

Here's a shot of the box after breaking the gold seal and opening the top.

So there are the 132 cards, just laid into the box. I'm surprised that there is no plastic wrap around the cards, further suggesting that they are probably dinged on the corners. I guess 1988 is too long ago to expect decent packaging. Say what you will about cards today--the packaging is a lot better.

I'm trying to give you guys at home a sense of what it's like to crack a set like this. Next, we'll take a peek at the first card.
