1972 Topps Baseball Unopened Wax Box (24 packs) - Third Series

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $8,400

Complete original wax box of 1972 Topps baseball containing packs from the third series (#264-394). A complete wax box of 1972 Topps houses twenty-four packs with each pack containing ten cards, for a total of 240 cards. The third series of 1972 Topps is highlighted by Hall of Famers Roberto Clemente (regular and In Action), Hank Aaron (regular and In Action), Luis Aparicio, and Willie McCovey, among others. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, it is entirely possible that this box includes several MINT and GEM MINT examples of many of these stars and other key cards. This box comes shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange (owned by Steve Hart, the foremost expert on unopened material). The box displays beautifully, appearing almost exactly as it did on the store shelves more than forty years ago. This is only the second complete unopened wax box that we have ever offered from the third series of 1972 Topps baseball (the first appeared as Lot #705 in REA's Spring 2015 auction, realizing $13,200). This is an incredible and extremely rare unopened wax box from this very popular set. Total: 24 packs.  Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $8,400
