    1988 Fleer Basketball Factory Sealed Wax Case with 12 Unopened Boxes. The 1980's saw a monumental surge of interest in professional basketball starting with the Magic Johnson and Larry Bird rivalry and the debut of Michael Jordan! This coincided with a fast growing interest in the sports card collecting. 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 are noteworthy exceptions for basketball fans - the Fleer editions that first appeared in 1986. Three decades later, each stands proudly as the most coveted basketball sets of the era.

    Offered is a still factory sealed 1988 Fleer Basketball wax case with a dozen unopened wax boxes inside! The over 400 individual packs might possibly have a Mint or Gem Mint card featuring the rookie cards of future HoFers Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, and Dennis Rodman of the Chicago Bulls, Reggie Miller of the Indiana Pacers, and John Stockton of the Utah Jazz. Plus there is Olajuwon, Barkley, Drexler, Malone, Bird, Magic Johnson, Patrick Ewing, of course Michael Jordan plus others, many can be found on both cards and insert stickers. Outer case presents nicely with no major signs of damage, just some wear. Tape along the top is aging and slightly loose but the case remains 100% sealed as it was day it came from the printers.
