    1953 Topps "World On Wheels" Cello Box with 36 Unopened Packs! In 1913 the first Model-T Fords were driven off another innovation called the assembly line. The next 15 years was an average of 1 million cards produced and the love affair with the car was born. Never before did man have such a personal sense of independence. By the 1950's, the car was king. It was a golden age of both engine power and body style that seemed to fit right in a new American sense of freedom after years of war. As with many other trends, Topps was right on top of it with a trading card set befitting the current craze. Topps' "World On Wheels" series is one of the most popular vehicle related releases thanks to the professional illustrations and some challenging high-numbers. This edition showcased cars, trains, and trucks from the more futuristic to the current trends and the past.

    Offered is a drive down memory lane. This original generic Topps trading card box shows some toning and spot staining but no damage. This outer protection worked wonderfully as inside are 36 virtually untouched cello packs from the "World On Wheels" series. The outer box is stamped "AUTOMOBILE SERIES" on the side panel.

    Condition report of the packs is a brief and happy one. "New" sums them up quiet nicely as they are about as mint as one could ever hope to encounter. The Topps inspection paper note is still inside in case someone thought this incredible find was anything less than 100% complete. Reviewed and sealed by Steve Hart of Baseball Card Exchange.
