    More virgin wax from the early Sixties gridiron...

    1961 Fleer Football Series 2 Wax Box with Twenty-Four Unopened Packs. Our consignor put away an unopened wax box of every Fleer sports and non-sport issue from 1959 through 1963. For a brief span during the early 1960's Fleer chipped away at the Topps monolith with football card promotions featuring current players and baseball promotions of "Baseball Greats." Today, these sets are great additions to what would otherwise just be Topps, Topps, and more Topps. Unopened material from this era is scarce. Individual unopened packs are prized but what we offer here is very special.

    Offered is a rarely seen retail display box with twenty-four 5-cent packs that have been barely touched by human hands. Their 1961 effort featured 220 cards. The offered box is from the second series that would contain cards of stars, Hall of Famers and short prints like Don Maynard, Jim Otto, Bobby Layne, Jack Kemp, Tom Flores, Johnny Robinson, Ernie Stautner, Hugh McElhenny, Wray Carlton, Lionel Taylor, Goose Gonsoulin, Ernie Wright, Cotton Davidson, Randy Duncan, George Blanda, John Henry Johnson, Paul Maguire, Ron Mix or the last card in the set featuring Sid Youngelman. Coming out of uncirculated packs these cards could be in Mint or Gem Mint condition!

    This presentation is the overall condition of the boxes remains at or near the Mint level! We see only slight wrinkles affecting the top panel. Each sealed pack is totally undisturbed with that "minty" aura. The box comes sealed by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.
