I hate to say it but you probably won't. Upper Deck actually ruined the value of their own cards by producing WAY too many. The first set was 90-91 and you can STILL buy an unopened which has 25 boxes for under 200 bucks. Obviously nobody would buy that, but if there are still that many unoowned cases imagine how saturated the market is with these cards. There was a bit of interest a few years ago because of grading. People were picking up boxes in hopes of getting a card with a grade of 9.5 or 10.
