    1988 Fleer Basketball Wax Case with Twelve Unopened Boxes - Opened June 2021. The 1980's was a golden age for the professional hardcourt, supplying fans with unforgettable battles between Bird and Magic, and of course, the thrilling debut of a legend by the name of Michael Jordan. Rather predictably, the basketball card industry saw an equivalent surge of interest during this memorable decade, but somehow this cardboard box preserved its virginity for more than three decades since its production and just recently opened this June. Beneath the original seal was found a dozen unopened, never touched by hands wax boxes that might contain pristine rookie cards from future Hall of Famers Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Horace Grant of the Chicago Bulls, Reggie Miller of the Pacers and John Stockton of the Jazz. Other notable names who might appear in card and/or sticker format include Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Patrick Ewing and, of course, the iconic Michael Jordan.

    All twelve, mint condition boxes are now sealed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange and labeled "From a sealed case opened June 2021."

    Guide Value or Estimate: $50,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
