    1992 Topps 40th Anniversary Contest 3rd Place Prize Prototype - From the Private Collection of Sy Berger. NOTE: The mockups are 100% fabrications for prototype purposes only. There are no cards inside of them that we know of, and they are NOT vintage wrappers. They are computer generated.

    In 1992 Topps was celebrating its 40th Anniversary as the premier supplier of trading cards to gum chewing baseball fans everywhere. Their intention was to offer prizes that included actual vintage unopened packs of Topps baseball cards from years past. This auction features four such prototypes that came from Topps with packs coming from Sy Berger himself. Offered is spectacular prototype intended for a third place instant winner of the Topps Instant Win contest! If all original, this would have been a fantastic third place prize.

    The display shows "packs" from 1951 through 1990. The "packs" are mockups, the only packs that appear to be original, vintage wax packs are those from 1974, 1975 and 1984 to 1990. Framed in a 3-1/2" deep shadowbox case to an overall size of 29-1/2" x 23-1/2."
