    1979 Topps Hockey Wax Box With 36 Unopened Packs - Gretzky Rookie Year! The holy grail of modern Basketball cards would be an unopened box from the 1986 Fleer series that contains the rookie card of Michael Jordan. The only worthy equivalent in the modern era of hockey cards is this wax box - the 1979/80 Topps edition, thanks to card #18, the rookie card of the "Great One" - Wayne Gretzky! Ask any hockey card enthusiast what box from the last 50 years they would want to own and the answer from all but one - there is always one - will be the 1979 Topps series.

    One can only imagine how many possibly Mint or Gem MT condition cards these treasured packs could yield. With the popularity of Gretzky it is safe to say unopened material from this series is scarce and immensely desirable at any grade level, but particularly the highest levels of quality. Packs have been authenticated and the box comes wrapped by Steve Hart-Baseball Card Exchange.
