    1976-77 Topps Basketball Wax Box. Direct from the year of our nation's bicentennial comes this lonely wax box, never having seen the counter of the local drug store where children would plunk down a nickle and a dime to purchase one of the twenty-four packs inside. What once would have then set you back $3.60 will now be a bit more, but keep in mind that there are eleven cards in the set of 144 capable of bringing well over $100 in Mint condition, including the all-important Julius Erving #1 card that books at $300 in PSA 9. Will you keep the wax box in its complete and untampered state, or turn it into your own private Las Vegas and crack the packs open? Our single caveat--don't chew the gum! Light wear at corners and edges of the box, while wax itself is pristine.
