1978 Topps Football Cello Box (24 Packs)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $960

Complete original unopened cello box of 1978 Topps football. The box houses twenty-four packs with each pack containing eighteen cards, for a total of 432 cards. The 1978 Topps Football set includes many Hall of Famers, such as Bradshaw, Payton, Staubach, Dorsett, Stallworth, and Largent, as well as all the other stars of the day. 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 Mint or Gem Mint examples of these key cards. The twenty-four interior packs are all in Near Mint or better condition, having been carefully preserved for nearly forty years. Hall of Famers Fred Biletnikoff and Jan Stenerud appear on the back of two packs. The display box is in modest condition, with the front side flap detached and the top popped out (as intended for display). Five pieces of vintage tape hold these areas in place. If desired, a new display box could very easily be obtained to house these pristine cello packs and return the full box of packs to its former glory. Total: 24 packs.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $960
