Lot # 693 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1971 Topps Baseball Third Series Unopened Vending Box

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $12,000

Original unopened vending box of 1971 Topps baseball. The box contains approximately 500 cards, from the third series (#264-393), which includes Hall of Famers Joe Morgan, Fergie Jenkins, Brooks Robinson, Don Sutton, Rollie Fingers, and Ted Williams, along with the rookie cards of star players George Foster and Steve Garvey. The black flush-to-the-border design of the 1971 Topps set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, it is very possible that these boxes include MINT or GEM MINT examples of these cards and others! 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 would have more than forty years ago. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $12,000
