    1965 Topps Baseball Shipping Case (Empty) with Killebrew, Koufax and Mantle Graphics. Offered is a rare 1965 Topps baseball (empty) shipping case that once housed 24 boxes of 24 5-cent wax packs. Can you imagine if it was still intact? How in the world anyone had the foresight to keep such a piece as they were by design made to be tossed once the precious cargo has been delivered to store shelves. To say a handful still exist would be optimistic. The tri-color graphics include portraits of Harmon Killebrew, Sandy Koufax and Mickey Mantle. The case measures 16-1/2 x 12 x 8" and shows overall wear including water staining. Three panels shows buckling. The bottom is intact with factory tape and staples. Top panels are intact as is the original shipping label telling us this case was shipped to "Rex Wholesale Conf." of Hazelton, PA. Yes, there are condition flaws but as we mentioned, how many could still be in collector hands and it is a fascinating piece of ephemera to add to your 1960's Topps collection.
