1957 Topps Baseball 2nd Series (Mantle Series) Wax Pack

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,610.00

Graded NM-MT 8 by GAI. This five-cent wax pack from the rare second series displays a beautiful full-color wrapper, no perforations on the corners, a tight seal, not a trace of dirt, and glorious gloss. It is absolutely incredible to see this pack, looking exactly as it did in 1957 when it originally sat with countless others on candy store shelves. It's a stunner, and while its contents are of course unknown, that mystery is a part of its great appeal. Mystery is, after all, the heritage of unopened packs. Being from the second series, it is very possible that this pack includes #95 Mickey Mantle, the key card from this popular set. This is an extraordinary high-grade example of this rare Topps wax pack. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,610.00
