1955 Topps All-American Football Unopened Cello Pack PSA NM-MT 8

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,963

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Extremely high-grade cello pack from the 1955 Topps All-American football set. Only nine cello packs have ever graded higher (all MINT 9). Each cello pack contains twenty cards from this very popular issue, the last football-card set issued by Topps, honoring college football stars and including numerous Hall of Famers and stars. Years ago, a remarkable group of untouched cello boxes was unearthed by the family of a 1950s-era toy dealer. A time capsule of sorts, the boxes yielded pristine cello packs that when opened produced tremendous high-grade singles. The offered pack originates from this legendary find, and while it is impossible to provide guarantees with respect to the grading of unopened material, it is possible that within this pack are several ultra high-grade cards from this very popular set. This is an outstanding original, unopened cello pack that would make an excellent companion piece to any 1955 Topps All-American set or serve as a superb addition to any vintage football collection. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,963
