1986 Topps Football Grocery Rack Pack Collection (15 packs, 720 cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,680

Outstanding collection of fifteen grocery rack packs from the 1986 Topps Football series. Each rack pack contains forty-eight cards, arranged in three sixteen-card cello packs, for a total of 720 cards. This is nearly twenty percent more cards than a standard 1986 Topps Football wax box contains. The 1986 Topps Football set is loaded with Hall of Famers and stars, including the rookie cards of Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Reggie White, Andre Reed, and Bruce Smith. 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 cards of these stars. All the other stars of the day are also included. These fifteen rack packs were purchased directly from Steve Hart of Baseball Card Exchange, the foremost expert on unopened material. All packs are in Nr/Mt-Mt condition, appearing almost exactly as they did on store shelves nearly thirty years ago. Also included is an empty 1986 Topps cello box, bright and crisp, with scattered flaws, mostly on the bottom, that would cause it to grade modestly despite a far better appearance. This is a very attractive collection of original unopened rack packs from this very popular football issue. Total: 15 packs.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,680
