    1980 Topps Basketball Wax Box With 36 Unopened Packs - Magic/Bird Rookie Year! Four decades later, this virgin survivor recalls the beginning of the most important decade in NBA history, when future giants like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan commanded the attention of a global basketball audience. This issue introduced two of those Hall of Fame immortals with what is now one of the most famous basketball cards of the past half-century.

    Could Topps have known? One clearly sees that card on the box top, indicating that the Topps brass somehow knew that the trio of Bird, Magic and Dr. J would be the wish of every youngster on a basketball court cracking open a pack of cards. Thankfully, our offered box remains uncharted territory, a close to mint presentation where possibly one or more of the treasured Bird/Irving/Johnson might exist inside. Authenticated and sealed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.
