    1980 Topps Baseball Unopened Wax Case With Twenty 36-Count Wax Boxes!
    Offered is a factory sealed 1980 Topps Baseball wax case with a full count of twenty wax pack boxes, each containing 36 packs! This is not an easy case to find intact, not that any from this era are for that matter, but what a key year that marked the end of the Topps strangle-hold on baseball card promotions.

    The temptation to open this beauty will be great. Any one of the 720 individual packs could contain what will literally be an almost 40-year old "pack-fresh" MINT or Gem MT card of such stars & HoFers like Nolan Ryan, George Brett, Mike Schmidt, Robin Yount, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench, Eddie Murray, Ozzie Smith (2nd year), Tom Seaver plus others as well as the rookie card of Rickey Henderson. The outer box shows some light wear and is 100% factory sealed via metal staples. NOTE: This item is heavy and will require additional shipping charges. With a Gem Mint Henderson rookie achieving sales over $20,000, and the fact there are probably two to three dozen in this case, the potential is enormous. See our website for the letter from Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.

     To Whom It May Concern:

    This letter goes along with a sealed case of 1980 Topps baseball wax boxes. This case contains 20 boxes, each with 36 wax packs. This case is still originally factory sealed. I have inspected the case myself and have found the top of the case to still be held together with the original staples on the flaps.  Topps started using glue in 1981 to seal wax cases.  Therefore, this 1980 case still has the factory issued staples holding the top flaps together.  Likewise, the bottom flaps are still being held together by factory issued staples.  In my opinion, this case is still originally factory sealed.
