1966 Donruss "Green Hornet" Unopened Wax Box (24 Packs)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,258.75

Extraordinary complete unopened wax box from the Donruss "Green Hornet" issue. This box houses twenty-four five-cent wax packs, each containing five cards and a stick of gum, for a total of 120 cards. Issued in 1966, this 44-card set was produced to coincide with the ABC television series following the exploits of the Green Hornet, a masked, crime-fighting vigilante. The show was a hit during the two seasons it aired, and the Green Hornet remains a very popular character to this day. This box is in exceptional condition, appearing almost as if it were manufactured yesterday, even though it is 47 years old! The twenty-four packs are all tightly wrapped and in Nr/Mt-Mt or better condition, while the display box shows almost no visible handling wear at all. The die-cut top panel, intended to be popped out for store display, is almost entirely unpunched. 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 superb complete wax box, appearing exactly as it would have on store shelves nearly fifty years ago, from this very popular mid-1960s nonsport issue. Total: 24 packs. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,258.75
