1966 Donruss "Marvel Super Heroes" Unopened Wax Box (24 Packs)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,251.50
Complete unopened wax box of 1966 Donruss "Marvel Super Heroes." This box houses twenty-four five-cent wax packs, each containing five cards, for a total of 120 cards. Marvel's roster of super heroes serve as subjects for this popular set, including Spiderman, Captain America, The Hulk, and others, in a series of colorful action scenes throughout the 66-card set. The colorful wax packs, bright yellow with six super-hero heads on the front panel, advertise an offer for a super-hero stationery set on the reverse in exchange for five wrappers and one dollar sent to the company address. Each pack is tightly wrapped, exceptionally well preserved, and presenting in Nr/Mt-Mt or better condition. The brightly illustrated display box features six Marvel Super Heroes on the top and side panel and remains in near-perfect condition with extremely minor handling wear at the corners mentioned only for the sake of accuracy. The top panel has been popped out, as intended, for store display. 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 Mint or Gem Mint cards from this set. This is a remarkable complete unopened wax box of this popular 1960s nonsport issue appearing exactly as it did on store shelves almost fifty years ago. Total: 24 packs. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,251.50
