1975-1976 O-Pee-Chee WHA Hockey Partial Wax Box (25 Packs) - All PSA NM 7 or NM-MT 8!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $8,400

Extremely rare partial wax box of 1975-1976 O-Pee-Chee WHA hockey cards, featuring twenty-five of the forty-eight packs which comprise a complete box. Each pack has been graded and encapsulated by PSA as NM-MT 8 (twenty packs) or NM 7 (five packs). This set was produced by O-Pee-Chee as a parallel to its regular issue in order to feature players from the World Hockey Association, which had been created just a few years earlier in an attempt to compete with the well-established National Hockey League. Several Hall of Famers are featured within the 132-card set, including Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull, and the key rookie card is that of Mark Howe, Gordie's son. Wax boxes from this issue are very rarely seen, and the packs presented here are all crisp and fresh. Also included is the original display box, which presents with bold colors but is technically in low grade as the top panel is secured to the box by means of tape, as is one of the side flaps. This is an outstanding collection of vintage wax packs from this rarely seen hockey-card issue. Total: 25 packs and one display box. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+. SOLD FOR $8,400
