1974 to 1980 Topps Football Unopened Cello-Pack Collection (7) - Five with Hall of Famers on Front!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720
Collection of seven unopened cello packs from five different Topps Football sets spanning the years 1974 to 1980. Five of the seven are particularly noteworthy cello packs as each contains a Hall of Famer on the front. 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 himself. 1) 1974 Topps: #130 OJ Simpson All-Pro on front. 2) 1975 Topps: #416 Joe Theismann on front. 3) 1976 Topps: #148 Randy White Rookie on front. 4) 1977 Topps: #100 OJ Simpson All-Pro on front. 5-6) 1978 Topps: #315 Tony Dorsett Rookie is on the front of both packs. 7) 1980 Topps: #170 Otis Anderson All-Pro on front and 475 Joe Theismann on back. Each of the packs is in exceptional condition, with only the 1974 and 1975 packs 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: 7 packs. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $720
