Description

    1959 Nu Cards "Rock & Roll" Cello Box With Packs and Loose Cards. Offered is a counter display box of "Rock & Roll Stars" cards produced by Nu-Cards in 1959. Inside are 21 loose cards and 29 cello 5-cent packs still housed inside. This set showcased many of the greatest stars from the earliest years of that new musical sound which some say triggered the end of the world - Rock & Roll. Some of the stars included in this set are Rickey Nelson, Ray Charles, Fats Domino, Johnny Cash, Perry Como, Pat Boone, Johnny Mathis, Sam Cooke, Jimmy Darren, The Platters, Paul Anka, Fabian, Frank Sinatra, Kingston Trio, Everly Brothers, Frankie Avalon, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin and the king - Elvis Presley. The box presents FR with wear and corner splits. NOTE: The interior packs are tightly wrapped but the fragile crimping that sealed the cellophane at the top and bottom has separated over the last half century for almost all of the packs. We do not feel they have been searched but please bid accordingly. The 21 loose cards are in great condition with clean surfaces and sharp corners and have that "fresh from the pack" appearance. They grade EX to NM/MT almost exclusively due to centering.
