    1951 Topps "Doubles" Empty Retail Box. The baseball card giant that is Topps Gum started in earnest in 1951 with the production of five small card sets featuring players both contemporary and from generations past. The most familiar are the 52-card "Red Back" cards called "Doubles" which also served as playing cards for a table-top baseball game. The cards seem tame by today's standard but represent the cornerstone of the most prolific producer of cards in the hobby. Offered is an original two-piece retail box that once played host to 120 packs. The top protective cover has overall wear at corners and bends. The right end panel has a partially missing corner and extensive wear along the bottom. The inner piece was nicely protected and has just light wear. The die-cut top panel is separated from the base.
