Lot # 1130 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Two 1981-1982 Topps Basketball Unopened Wax Boxes (72 Packs)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960

Two original unopened 36-count wax boxes of 1981-1982 Topps basketball. Each box contains thirty-six wax packs, with each pack containing thirteen cards, for a total of seventy-two packs and 936 cards. Both boxes come from a very old-time collection consigned to this auction and have been carefully saved by the owner since the year of issue. The 1981-1982 Topps set includes the rookie card of Kevin McHale, as well as second-year cards of Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, there is, of course, the very real possibility that within these boxes are Mint or Gem Mint cards of these stars. All the other stars of the day are also included. The packs are in overall Nr/Mt or better condition. One of the display boxes presents as Excellent, with light shelf wear along the edges, but the top display panel has become entirely detached. The second display box is in Near Mint condition, appearing exactly as it did thirty-five years ago (the word "West" is written in small blue pen on the bottom of the box, noting that it is a West region box). Total: 2 boxes, 72 packs.  Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $960
