    1986 Fleer Basketball Wax Box With 36 Unopened Packs. While the 1980's saw a welcome surge of interest in sports card collecting, this trend resulted in a veritable tsunami of cardboard from the old guard and newcomers alike, creating a supply that drowned even that augmented demand. Today you'll find sets of Donruss, Topps and Upper Deck still in the shrink wrap, and selling for less than the thirty-year old price tag affixed. But there was one noteworthy exception for basketball fans: the 1986 Fleer edition of 132 cards and eleven stickers.

    Three decades later it is an issue that stands proudly as the most coveted basketball set of the modern era. Not since the fabled "Tall Boys" of the 1969-70 Topps issue has a basketball issue boasted such a remarkable assembly of rookie talent, highlighted, of course, by the number fifty-seven card (and number eight sticker) dedicated to the iconic Michael Jordan. A short list of esteemed stars and Hall of Famers who appear in this set (many their rookie debut) include Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Joe Dumars, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Manute Bol, Wayman Tisdale, Chris Mullin, Hakeem Olajuwon, Isiah Thomas, Dominique Wilkins, James Worthy, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

    Offered is a thirty-six unopened wax pack box of 1986 Fleer basketball cards. The outer box displays nicely with moderate wear exhibited. This is the ultimate representation of the modern trading card hobby's most iconic and important wax box. Authenticated & sealed by Baseball Card Exchange (BBCE).

    This letter is being written for the 1986/87 Fleer basketball wax box that is labeled #X0132.

    It is in my best opinion that this wax box is not the exact 36 packs issued by Fleer. The sticker collation is not correct as on original Fleer box should be. However, the packs are 100% original. We will label this box as a "36 pack box".

    The sticker collation for this box is as follows:

    Jabbar --- 2 Stickers
    Bird --- 4 Stickers
    Dantley ---5 Stickers
    English --- 3 Stickers
    Erving---3 Stickers
    Ewing---4 Stickers
    Johnson --- 3 Stickers
    Jordan --- 3 Stickers
    Olajuwon --- 3 Stickers
