    1963 Topps Football PSA-Graded Wax Packs (19) With Original Retail Box. Who doesn't love a new discovery? If you do, the following presentation has been intact for almost sixty years and are being made available at pubic auction for the first time! A more than likely early-10964 store shelf appearance resulted in the sale of just three packs before sunnier days and thoughts of baseball were entering the hearts of gum-chewing sports fans. The colorful outer box was designed to house 24 interior packs being sold for 5-cents each. We are happy to say there are still twenty-one included here plus the now empty retail wax box.

    As Summer tuned to Fall in 1963 and Baseball's Fall Classic concluded sports fans turned to football. Topps produced a 170-card edition that would one day possibly serve as the inspiration for their 1975 baseball effort. The style is colors, colors and more colors from tip to tip. While he set doesn't have a more limited high-number run, it does have over seventy-five (close to half the set) cards that were printed in lesser quantity officially making them more challenging short prints. The set features the greats of the 1963 NFL season including over thirty Hall of Famers including Johnny Unitas, Lenny Moore, Raymond Berry, Jim Parker, Gino Marchetti, Jim Brown/SP, Mike McCormack/SP, Lou Groza/SP, Dick Lane, Yale Lary, Joe Schmidt, Deacon Jones (Rookie), Y.A. Tittle/SP, Sam Huff/SP, Doug Atkins, Bill George, Bob Lilly /SP (Rookie), Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Forrest Gregg, Jim Ringo, Hank Jordan, Willie Wood (Rookie), Ray Nitschke (Rookie), Fran Tarkenton, Hugh McElhenny, Sonny Jurgensen/SP, Tommy McDonald/SP, John Henry Johnson/SP, Ernie Stautner/SP, Bob St. Clair, Leo Nomellini, and Bobby Mitchell.

    The box which served as both carrier and protector did it's job and is today in good condition but the top panel separated from the base but kept each of the packs well preserved. Each has been graded by PSA: PSA NM-MT 8 (7 packs) and PSA NM 7 (12 packs). Inside was an original Topps sales 4-page brochure that you rarely ever see.
