    Description

    1953 Topps Baseball Five Cent Wax Pack PSA EX 5. One look at the bold red, white, blue and black design and one forgets this was only the second year Topps produced a major baseball card release in their quest to reverse the lead enjoyed by Bowman. '53 was the year of illustration vs photography and although photography seems to have won that creative war the 1953 Topps edition is considered by many to be their best effort. Offered is a rare 1953 Topps Baseball 5-cent wax pack, graded PSA EX 5. The packs appears completely unscathed by the six decades of time that have passed since the multi-card gem went into circulation. One's natural instinct is to tear this beauty open, hoping beyond hope for a mint card bearing the name Mantle, Mays or Paige! A deep breath later and you realize just how few unopened packs from 1953 could possibly exist and the realization that just having this in your collection is reward enough. Competition must have been fierce as Topps was sure to note the 3/8 oz size slab of gum which certainly bested the lighter stick found in packs of the "other" brand.
