    1970 Topps Baseball Wax Box (1st & 2nd Series) with 24 Unopened Packs. If you are wondering whether or not Heritage Auctions has ever seen a wax box of 1970 Topps baseball cards, we have, just once. That presentation included a display box, but it was a half box. Now a dozen unopened packs from 1970 is nothing to be ashamed of but this, this is a surprising scarcity. At 720 cards, the set was at the time the largest Topps had ever produced, baseball or otherwise. What that meant is that kids had to open a lot of packs and as always the packs got opened fast and furious as you closed in on the 717, 718, 719 and final card to complete your set. Ah, the good old days when baseball cards came ten at a time for just 10-cents.

    Our offered box is a beautiful, full box with all twenty-four packs housed inside! The box presents at the near-mint level without any dimpling or crimpling from storage. As a first & second series box, the potential for a Mint or Gem Mint card featuring the World Champions (Mets), Carl Yastrzemski, Vida Blue (Rookie), Rich Allen, one of a dozen different Leaders cards, Reggie Jackson, Harmon Killebrew, Phil Niekro, Thurman Munson (Rookie), Playoff highlights, Ted Williams, Steve Carlton, Brooks Robinson, Fergie Jenkins, Willie McCovey, plus others is entirely possible. An absolutely remarkable find, sure to please the masses of wax collectors. Packs have been reviewed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.
