Lot # 1083 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Two 1981-1982 Topps Basketball Wax Boxes (72 Packs)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Two original unopened 36-count wax boxes of 1981-1982 Topps basketball. Each box contains thirty-six wax packs, with each pack containing thirteen cards, for a total of seventy-two packs and 936 cards. The 1981-1982 Topps set includes the rookie card of Kevin McHale, as well as second-year cards of Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, there is, of course, the very real possibility that within this box are Gem Mint cards of these stars. All the other stars of the day are also included. The packs are in overall Nr/Mt or better condition (with a few lesser). Six of the top packs have loosened seals, likely from many years of storage by our consignor affecting the glue (all cards and gum are intact). Each box displays minor shelf wear and has small initials in pen on the front side panel (EE and MW, which likely stand for East and West regions as these boxes were issued regionally); the top flap of one box has a large "X" in marker, consistent with wax boxes from this era. Total: 2 boxes. SOLD FOR $600
