    Description

    1988 Fleer Basketball Wax Case with 12 Unopened Boxes. The 1980's saw a monumental surge of interest in professional basketball starting with the Magic Johnson and Larry Bird rivalry and the debut of Michael Jordan! This coincided with a fast growing interest in the sports card collecting. Today you'll find sets of Donruss, Topps and Upper Deck still in the shrink wrap, and selling for less than the thirty year old price tag affixed. But there are noteworthy exceptions for basketball fans - the Fleer editions that first appeared in 1986. Three decades later, each stands proudly as the most coveted basketball sets of the era.

    Offered is a 1988 Fleer Basketball wax case with a dozen unopened wax pack boxes inside! Inside the over 400 individual packs are going to be possibly Mint or gem Mint cards featuring the rookie cards of future HoFers Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman of the Chicago Bulls, Reggie Miller of the Indiana Pacers, and John Stockton of the Utah Jazz. Plus Jordan, Olajuwon, Barkley, Drexler, Horace Grant Rookie, Malone, Bird, Magic Johnson, Patrick Ewing plus others, many on both cards and insert stickers. Outer case presents EX-MT. Tape along the top is slightly brittle and semi-loose but the case remains sealed. When was the last time you saw one of these?
