1976-1977 Topps Basketball Wax Box (22/24 Packs)

Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $705.00

Original wax box (missing two packs) of 1976-1977 Topps basketball. The box houses twenty-two of the twenty-four packs with each pack containing ten cards, for a total of 220 cards. We can't call this a complete unopened box because some kid long ago bought two packs, but it's close! The 1976 Topps set includes cards of Julius Erving, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Thompson (RC), and Moses Malone. While it is impossible to provide guarantees with reference to grading of unopened material, there is, of course, the very real possibility that within this box are Gem Mint cards of these stars. All the other stars of the day are also included. Ten of the interior packs are in Ex-Mt condition and twelve are slightly lesser (downgraded due to a very minor tear or two in the corners). Six packs have opened over time. They were not deliberately opened but the glue seal on these six packs is broken; the cards and gum remain untouched in the wrappers, which have never been opened. The box has shelf wear but displays beautifully. Total 22 packs. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $705.00
