    Description

    Twenty-four rack packs of fifty-four cards!

    1973 Topps Baseball (Series 2 & 3) Rack Box. The grey-haired collectors among us will fondly remember the days of the rack pack, which provided both a literal window into its contents and a considerably larger population of inhabitants than its wax pack contemporaries. Surely many of us recall flipping through the rack packs, searching for our favorites, and the experts at Baseball Card Exchange did a bit of that work before sealing this forty-eight year old box in its proprietary shrink wrap for safe keeping.

    The label on back assures that Hall of Fame legends Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson and two Goose Gossage rookies appear on the top layer of the rack packs within. Other notable names from the two represented series who may emerge from the total card count of 1,296 cards in elite condition include Thurman Munson, Harmon Killebrew, Carlton Fisk, Joe Morgan, Carl Yastrzemski, Al Kaline, Steve Carlton, Willie Mays, Lou Brock, Rod Carew and Jim Palmer.

    Considerably larger than wax boxes at 12x9x4", this rack box exhibits scattered creasing and a bit of denting along the lower edge that has split one of the short/vertical seams, but it otherwise presents beautifully, with simple graphics that perfectly evoke the early seventies aesthetic.
