    Description

    1968 Philadelphia Gum Robert F. Kennedy Wax Box With 24 Packs. As chief counsel of the Senate Labor Rackets Committee, better known as the McClellan Committee, Robert F. Kennedy was on a personal mission to bring down corruption anywhere at any level. He was particularly determined to "get (Jimmy) Hoffa." Kennedy's goal was noble and clear, and stated boldly in his book, "The point I want to make is this: If we do not on a national scale attack organized crime with weapons and techniques as effective as their own, they will destroy us." His appeal was such that Philadelphia Gum went far introducing Robert F. Kennedy to a young generation via a set of trading cards in 1968. The scarcely offered box contains 24 unopened packs. The outer box has some wear and presents at the excellent level, the packs are EX/MT or better. This item has been reviewed by Steve Hart and comes sealed by the Baseball Card Exchange.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
