1966-1967 Donruss and Topps "The Monkees" Complete Collection of Unopened Wax Boxes (5 Different Boxes)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,555.00

Collection of five different complete and unopened wax boxes from "The Monkees" sets produced by Donruss and Topps. The Monkees, the famous pop band headlined by Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz, gained immense notoriety during the mid-1960s as a result of their popular NBC television show. In an effort to capitalize on the craze surrounding the band, Donruss produced a number of sets devoted exclusively to the band and featuring scenes from the show while Topps joined in later with a single 1967 issue of the same focus. This collection consists of the following 5 complete unopened wax boxes: 1) 1966 "The Monkees" Wax Box: Sepia-colored series. 24 packs. 2) 1966 "The Monkees - Series A" Wax Box: Color photo series. 24 packs. 3) 1966 "The Monkees - Series B" Wax Box: Color photo series. 24 packs. 4) 1967 "The Monkees - Series C" Wax Box: Color photo series. 24 packs. 5) 1967 Topps "Monkees Flip Movies" Wax Box: 24 packs. All 120 packs included in these five boxes are in superb condition, tightly wrapped, and grade Nr/Mt-Mt or better. Each of the five boxes has been exceptionally well preserved, maintaining their vibrant colors and strong eye-appeal. The Topps box is in "like new" condition, appearing exactly as it did in the year of issue, with even the diecut panel fully intact and not popped out as intended for counter display. Light staining is present in the top left corner of the top panel and along the backside panel of the four Donruss boxes. While no guarantees can be made with respect to the grading of unopened material, it is entirely possible that within these boxes are Mint or Gem Mint examples of cards from these five sets. This is an outstanding collection of wax boxes from these classic mid-1960s nonsport sets devoted to the pop culture phenomenon that was The Monkees. Total: 5 boxes, 120 packs. Reserve $500. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,555.00
