    1952 Bowman Baseball 5-Cent Unopened Wax Pack PSA EX-MT 6. Paris, Tennessee was the site where over 750 unopened 1954 and 1955 Topps and Bowman baseball and football wax boxes were discovered. This has made acquiring unopened packs from the final Bowman releases a possibility but that certainly does not apply to the 1952 Bowman baseball edition. We can say we are so please to be able to offer for the first time in Heritage Auctions Sports history a rare 5-Cent 1952 Bowman Baseball wax pack with 6 cards, each still untouched by human hands. The patriotic red, white and blue color scheme is reminiscent of the early 1950's Bowman baseball color palette. With individual wrappers selling for hundreds of dollars, how much is an unopened pack worth? And not just any pack, an even far more rare 5-cent pack. We will soon find out. Shifting gum has made a small opening I the left edge. We cannot determine which specific series this pack originates from. Graded PSA EX-MT 6.
