1975 Topps Mini Unopened Wax Case

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $12,925

This original factory-sealed wax case of 1975 Topps Mini baseball houses sixteen boxes with thirty-six packs per box for a total of 576 packs. With each pack containing ten cards, the case represents a total of 5,760 cards. The 1975 Topps Mini set includes the rookie cards of Hall of Famers George Brett, Robin Yount, and Gary Carter, and many other stars, including Schmidt, Aaron, Ryan, and Jackson. The 1975 Mini cards are 20% smaller than the standard Topps cards and were test marketed only in Michigan and certain areas of the West Coast. Aside from their smaller size, they are otherwise identical to the standard 1975 Topps cards. The colored flush-to-the-border design of the 1975 Topps Mini set makes this issue particularly challenging to collect in extremely high grade. While we cannot state with certainty, it seems highly probable that this case contains numerous cards, both stars and commons, that would be ideal candidates for professional grading. The outer box, which displays normal shipping wear, has never been opened and the sixteen wax boxes are in their original guaranteed unsearched and unopened state. As a special courtesy to REA, all unopened boxes and cases in this auction have been personally reviewed by world renowned unopened box and case expert Steve Hart of the Baseball Card Exchange. From the Charlie Conlon Collection. Please Note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, shipping costs (depending on where it is sent and its method of shipping) may be substantial. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $12,925
