Starting Bid - $1,500.00, Sold For - $2,643.75

Tremendous collection of twenty-nine unopened wax boxes spanning the years 1977 to 1989. This collection represents a near-complete run (missing only 1986 and 1988 Donruss and 1989 Fleer) of unopened wax boxes from three different card manufacturers: Donruss, Fleer, and Topps.

Each box was properly stored in the ideal manner, away from moisture, in a dry and clean area within his home. This is the first time this unopened material has seen the light of day in over fifteen years. Every box is all original and guaranteed to be unopened and unsearched. The interior packs are in Excellent or better condition (mostly Near Mint or better), have never handled, and display only normal packing and storage wear, if any at all (sometimes in the manufacturer's packaging process a pack can have a tiny corner tear or minor imperfection).
