    Guaranteed Yaz rookie, Mantle/Boyer All-Star

    1960 Topps Baseball 2nd Series Cello Box (36 Packs). It's a Major League Baseball season best remembered for the Mazeroski walk-off World Series blast that brought it to a dramatic conclusion, but somehow in the excitement this virgin cello box was lost and forgotten. Over a half century later, the nearly pristine relic reemerges to tease collectors with its "10ยข per pack" price tag, which has been affected just a bit by decades of inflation.

    This second series box contains card numbers ranging from 111 to 198, suggesting that key cards including rookies from Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Kaat and Frank Howard may reside within, as well as the important Mantle/Boyer "Rival All-Stars" card. The thirty-six (36) packs might very well contain Mint 9 and/or Gem Mint 10 specimens, but you'll have to break through the shrink-wrapped authentication packaging applied by the "Baseball Card Exchange," the hobby's leading authority for unopened trading cards, to find out.

    The label applied to the bottom of the sealed box does make a couple guarantees, however, stating that one cello pack has Yaz on top, and another the Mantle/Boyer. How many more might lurk within?

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
