    1964 O-Pee-Chee "Outer Limits" High-Grade 5-Cent Wax Packs (24) - GAI Graded! Topps reserved the use of their "Bubbles, Inc." imprint for sets that they felt could be viewed as controversial by the parents of America. "Monsters From Outer Limits" stands as the final Bubbles, Inc. offering. It is also believed to be the very last non-sport set to be distributed in both nickel and penny packs. What a great set! As classic as a set can get. The design incorporated originally black-and-white photo imagery from the popular TV show but given a brilliant hand-colored treatment by the Topps art staff who obviously love glowing hot pastels. Every image was framed within fragile black borders that drives condition-conscious collectors crazy. The set's single prints make it one of the tougher sets to complete in high grade.

    Unopened packs from this series are very rare and about as highly coveted as 1960's non-sports wax packs can get. Offered are 24 unopened packs packed for the Canadian market! Each is graded by GAI. Includes: GAI Gem Mint 9.5 (9 packs), GAI Mint 9 (12 packs), GAI NM-MT+ 8.5 (3 packs). Low pop PSA Mint 9 cards are still selling for over $1,000. Cards in NM-MT sell for hundreds of dollars each. As much as we would like to see these packs be kept intact the truth is there is enormous potential. Can you imagine how many MINT or possibly Gem MINT cards could be inside these packs?

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
