Description

    1953 Topps "World on Wheels" Collection (234) Plus (Empty) Counter Display Box. NOTE: There are fourteen graded cards in this presentation. For clarity, we want to add the wax box is empty, there are no wax packs being offered.

    The transportation-themed, 1950s classic "World on Wheels" was widely heralded as a hobby masterpiece on the basis of its content and artistry. That opinion has changed little. In addition to this gallery of 234 cards is a scarce (and empty) 24-count wax pack box. The box presents at the VG level but has one corner split with old yellowed tape. There are tape stains on the inner top panel as well. Fourteen cards have been graded by SGC. Includes: Graded - SGC 96 MINT 9: 1 card, #64; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 4 cards, #'s 45, 52, 56, 65; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 1 card, #57; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 3 cards, #'s 88, 94, 97; SGC 84 NM 7: 5 cards, #'s 9, 11, 19, 26, 100. Grades 36% NM to NM/MT, 38% EX to EX/MT, 26% VG to VG/EX (few lesser).
