    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."
