1970 to 2015 Topps Unopened Wax Pack Complete Run (Minus 1) Collection (55 Packs)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Presented is a fascinating and extremely substantial collection of fifty-five different unopened Topps packs spanning the years 1970 to 2015, representing a complete run of unopened pack examples from these years, with the exception of one: missing only 1971 for completion. This outstanding collection was assembled one pack at a time by our consignor, who wanted to illustrate the progression of baseball-card packs from the year of his birth to the present. The packs from 1970 to 1992 are classic wax packs, while the packs shifted in design to foil beginning in 1993. Also starting in 1993, sets were issued in Series 1 and Series 2. At least one pack is present from each year; both Series 1 and 2 are present for 2000-2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2013. Topps Update packs are also included for 2008 and 2010. Overall condition of the packs is Nr/Mt, with light shelf wear visible along the edges on some. This is a very fun and relatively inexpensive history of pack collecting from 1970 to the present. Total: 55 packs.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,320
