1973 and 1975 Topps Football Unopened Cello-Pack Collection (4) - All with Hall of Famers on Front and Back!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $4,500
Collection of four unopened cello packs, two each from 1973 and 1975 Topps Football. These are all particularly noteworthy cello packs as each pack contains a Hall of Famer on the front and back. This is very rarely seen and was even realized as special by our consignor forty years ago, when he received products directly from Topps and made a point to save these packs (and others in this auction) for his personal collection. 1-2) 1973 Topps: one pack features #400 Joe Namath on front and #475 Roger Staubach on back, while the other features #487 Ken Stabler Rookie on front and #245 John Riggins on back. 3-4) 1975 Topps: one pack features #367 Fouts Rookie on front and #400 Fran Tarkenton on back, while the other features #282 Lynn Swann Rookie on front and #425 Joe Greene on back. Each of the packs is in exceptional condition, with only the Swann pack displaying tiny tears at the tips of the corners. While there are no guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, it is possible that ultra high-grade examples of Hall of Famers, stars, and other top players of the day could be included within. This is an outstanding group of mid-1970s football cello packs which would make excellent additions to any pack collection or provide accents to any collection including these complete sets. Total: 4 packs. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $4,500
