1955 Bowman Unopened One-Cent Wax Pack PSA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,896.00
Graded MINT 9 by PSA. One of only two examples graded at this level with none higher. Ultra high-grade original one-cent wax pack from the 1955 Bowman baseball set. This pack contains one card and a stick of gum. The 1955 Bowman set contains numerous Hall of Famers including, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, and Willie Mays, as well as many other stars of the day. It is extremely likely that this pack is from the famous "Paris, Tennessee, Find" of unopened 1955 Bowman boxes discovered decades ago by legendary dealer Alan "Mr. Mint" Rosen. This pack is an incredible surviving example, worthy in every respect of its MINT grade. Exceptionally bold colors, no rips or tears, and perfectly folded and sealed. This pack appears exactly as it did in stores almost sixty years ago! SMR is $1,250. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
SOLD FOR $1,896.00
