    Description

    1972 Topps Baseball Fifth/Sixth Series Wax Box with 24 Unopened Packs. Topping out at 787 cards, the 1972 Topps baseball series was their largest promotion Topps had ever produced. Keeping with the style of the times, cards were flashy and stylish. Maximum visual impact was achieved thanks to the glossy white borders that surrounded a frame glowing with a combination of cyan, orange, lime, yellow, blue, green and red. Innovative cards include "Boyhood Photo of the Stars" and the first separate cards announcing player Trades and of course, the great "In Action" cards that allowed for second cards of the greats of the era to get in one more appearance. Issued in six series, as with previous high-number runs the 1972 high numbers are a tad more difficult to find.

    Offered is a rare 1972 Topps baseball wax box with twenty-four uncirculated 10-cent wax packs from the concluding 5th (#'s 526-656) and 6th (#'s 657-787) series of the massive edition. As a 5th/6th series box, there is the potential for Mint or Gem Mint condition card featuring stars/HoFers like Don Sutton, Brooks Robinson, Ron Santo, Pete Rose, Pete Rose IA, Juan Marichal, Juan Marichal IA, Phil Niekro, Al Kaline, Nolan Ryan, Texas Rangers team, Steve Garvey, Rod Carew, Rod Carew IA, Bill Mazeroski, Dusty Baker, Ron Cey or Rick Dempsey (rookies), any one of eight "Boyhood Photo" cards of one of seven Traded cards that could feature Steve Carlton, Frank Robinson or Joe Morgan.
    The box presents very close to overall mint condition. The 24 interior packs have passed inspection. The box comes sealed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
