1963 Topps Football Unopened Wax Box (24 Packs)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $32,588

Incredible complete unopened wax box of 1963 Topps Football containing twenty-four original unopened 5-cent wax packs. This is an extremely rare complete unopened box! To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a complete unopened box of this issue has been offered at public auction. The colorful 1963 Topps football set is very popular among collectors and features all the stars of the era, including rookie cards of Hall of Famers Deacon Jones, Bob Lilly, and Ray Nitschke, and stars such as Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Mike Ditka, Bart Starr, and Fran Tarkenton. The display box has survived in stunning condition with bright colors and minimal shelf wear and comes shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange (owned by Steve Hart, the foremost expert on unopened material). 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. This tremendous high-grade unopened wax box, which looks exactly as it did when it sat on a candy-store shelf in 1963, would make an incredible addition to even the most advanced football or unopened wax box collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000++. SOLD FOR $32,588
