Twelve 1985 Topps USFL Complete Factory-Sealed Boxed Sets (1,584 cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200

Collection of twelve unopened complete factory sets of 1985 Topps USFL Football. Each box contains all 132 cards in a complete set for a total of 1,584 cards. The 1985 Topps USFL Football set is highlighted by the rookie card of Doug Flutie as well as cards of Hall of Famers Steve Young, Jim Kelly, and Reggie White. Many other stars of the day are also included. The factory seals of all twelve boxes are no longer intact, but on several boxes it appears that the tape has merely loosened over the last thirty years and was not deliberately broken. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, it would be hard to imagine that these boxes do not include a generous supply of high-grade cards of most players in the set. Saved for decades by our consignor, these twelve high-grade unopened boxes look exactly as they did when they left the Topps factory in 1985! (And, in fact, they have been untouched and packed away since that time! These boxes have been consigned directly by a now long-retired professional photographer who provided production photos for cards decades ago, and who naturally had a great personal interest in the hobby. He put away many then-modern boxes in case they would become valuable in later years; we believed that all were sold by REA years ago, but he just found these few additional boxes in storage that were long forgotten!) Total: 12 complete boxed sets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,200
