The box-hit from a fresh 1995-96 Fleer Metal box happened to be of The GOAT, Michael Jordan, in our latest card breaks here on Vintage Breaks! Not only did we pull a Maximum Metal Jordan, we also pulled a Slick Silver insert, too! Check out the the video and see how you can get in on the next break.
Not one but TWO inserts of The GOAT? It was that kind of day on Vintage Breaks South this weekend. Gilmore opened up a sealed box of 1995-96 Metal Series 1 for James Phillips. James bought every spot in the break to make it a personal box, and we went hunting for MJ.
Checking the insert ratio of the box, a Silver Spotlight (Series 1 has 200 cards in the set) was inserted in every pack, Slick Silver inserts are 1 in 7 packs, and Maximum Metal inserts are 1 per box of 36 packs. James knew he would pull 1 Maximum Metal and a few Slick Silvers but of which players? Nostalgia hits like Penny Hardaway or Hall of Famers like Jason Kidd or Shaq maybe?. Luck was on James' side as he scoops up a Jordan as one of the Slick Silvers, and the lone Maximum Metal in box turned out to #23, too, or as Gilmore put it - "Michael. Freakin'. Jordan." 😮

Congrats, James! Those MJ's look AWESOME! Loving the die-cut; really taking us back to the 90's when you could find a pack of hoops cards that had more than four cards and die-cuts were THE cards to own. When Wal-Mart had boxes with 20 + packs and we could find all the boxes you could dream of; those were the days.
Gilmore makes a great point - these cards look great because they weren't in a binder your mom found under your old bed when you go visit. The cards haven't been placed in screwdowns or old top loaders and passed around at card shows. What you get from VB are pack-fresh pulls that we also broadcast live for you and are posted on all of our socials for playback; the provenance is undeniable.
