    Description

    1970's "Close Encounters" and "Aliens" Unopened Wax Boxes Pair (2). Some of the most amazing sci-fi films came to us from the 1970's. The lot includes one unopened box of Topps' Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1978, 36 packs) and Aliens (1979, 36 packs). Close Encounters was Steven Spielberg's first great cinematic achievement while "Aliens," starring a young Sigourney Weaver and some of the most vicious outer space monsters captured on film is still ranked as one of the greatest outer space films of all-time. Both boxes present at the EX/MT level with no signs of major damage. Note: All packs appear to be undisturbed and in original unsealed, generally excellent condition. We have judged the collectibles to the best of our expertise but cannot guarantee the assessment of a third party grader, please bid accordingly.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $150 - $300.
