    Description

    2001 Topps 50th Anniversary Presentation Sets (2) - With Wood Presentation Boxes. NOTE: The "Topps" sticker acts as a seal for the boxes that house the cards. The ends of these boxes though can be opened. Heritage did not open the boxes and will not disturb nor are responsible for the contents. We have no reason to believe the boxes were ever opened but please bid accordingly.

    Offered is a pair of very special 2001 Topps 50th Anniversary Presentation Sets. This promotion is remarkable for many reasons. The set consists of one random card from every annual Topps set from 1951 to 2000. To the best of our knowledge they were never made available to the public making them the most exclusive Topps promotion ever and the pair originate from the personal holdings of a hobby legend - the man responsible for dumping cases of 1952 Topps cards into the Atlantic - Sy Berger! The cards are housed in an elegant gold box with a "Topps" gold foil sticker. Each box is contained inside a large 6-1/2 x 5 x 3" wood box with a gold "Topps 50 Years" metal logo embedded in the cover. Overall Mint condition and an amazing addition to any collection. Exactly how many of these were made is unknown. How many (if any) were given away is also unknown. We have been unable to find no other auction record of this promotion ever being offered other than this same pair.
