    1952 Topps Baseball "Picture Card" 1-Cent Retail Wax Box (Empty). Offered is a rarely seen counter display box of Topps baseball cards from 1952. If you could choose just one box to add to your collection, what would it be? After a brief moment focusing on the year you were born, or waxing sentimental about the year your child was born, you realize the answer is 1952. This was the set upon which an empire was built. It may have been their first major effort and many will debate it is still their finest. The tri-color box once housed and unbelievable 120 wax packs all for the taking for just one penny! The top cover has mild surface wear, wear at corners and along bends. The left edge is split. The bottom half shows wear at corners, plus creasing and pressure dimpling at the sides. What a fantastic item to display with your 1952 collection. Filled, this small block would be worth its weight in gold, if not more.
