1963 Topps Presentation Box Collection (5)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $470

Offered are five extremely rare "Presentation Boxes" relating to the 1963 Topps set. These five boxes, which originally housed five complete series of 1963 Topps, were specially created by Topps in extremely limited numbers exclusively for special presentations of 1963 baseball cards to ballplayers and dignitaries. Each fancy brown-and-white box (2.75 x 3.75 x 2 inches), which represents a different series (1st through 5th), has "Limited Edition - Baseball Picture Cards - Collectors Set - Topps Chewing Gum Inc." in gold lettering on the front and side panels. The boxes are in Near Mint condition. While we have known of the existence of these boxes for decades, and seen a few examples years ago, these are the very first examples that we can ever recall offering at auction. This is an extremely rare, literally almost-never-seen 1963 Topps card-related collection, which would be an ideal accompaniment to any high-grade 1963 Topps collection. Total 5 boxes. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $470
