    Description

    1969 Topps Baseball First Series Wax Box with 24 Unopened 5-cent Wax Packs. Unopened packs and boxes from generations past must certainly be the most fascinating type of collectible that doesn't have "Game Used" in their title. For the collector, their childhood is peppered with happy memories of plucking down those hard earned nickels and dimes only to pull out a fresh, glossy card of one favorite player that last card we need to fill in our treasured set. Admit it, even if you didn't need a single card it is a thrill time after time hearing the wax paper bloom open, the smell of the gum that tasted so bad it was good. How even a single pack manages to somehow remain intact is the ultimate question mark. It isn't just an unopened pack, it represents a lost moment of happiness from a time before jobs, responsibilities, doing taxes, etc., etc.

    Our databases show a number of 1969 Topps baseball counter display boxes have been put up for auction. All of them were empty boxes! Offered is an unquestionably rare 5-cent wax box from the first series of Topps baseball cards from 1969! This one has what is believed to be not just twenty-four uncirculated wax packs but possibly the same ones hosed for almost 50 years now. The box presents excellent with buckling and tears at the right and left tabs. The packs are a consistent high quality and visually looked undisturbed.

    Inside could be a Mint or even Gem Mint card featuring any one of a dozen different League Leader cards featuring one of more Stars and HoFers, Ernie Banks, Joe Morgan, Roberto Clemente, An Al Oliver (rookie), Graig Nettles (rookie), Hank Aaron, Lou Brock, Johnny Bench and much more. We certainly understand and sympathize with whoever should give into what must be an overwhelming need to open this lost treasure. Reviewed and factory sealed by Steve Hart/Baseball card Exchange.
