Exceptional trio of original unopened cello packs from the 1959 Topps Football series. Each pack is encapsulated as Authentic by BGS. While each of these packs is notable for remaining sealed in its original state for more than fifty years, it is equally impressive that each features an example of #10 Jim Brown, the key card to the 1959 Topps set, on the reverse. This is a tremendous matched trio of cello packs featuring the Cleveland Browns Hall of Famer. The top cards are Mike Sandusky, Philadelphia Eagles Team, and Pittsburgh Steelers Team. Each pack appears to be tightly wrapped but BGS notes split corners because the top two corners of each pack reveal that the cards have pushed through the delicate cello wrap. We have observed this phenomenon on numerous other cello packs, including 1959 Topps, throughout the years and have seen them encapsulated by PSA and graded appropriately accounting for the flaw. A single pack featuring the key card on either front or back would be remarkable, but three in a single collection is especially impressive and noteworthy. This is a tremendous trio of original unopened cello packs that would be worthy additions to any 1959 Topps, Jim Brown, or unopened pack collection. Total: 3 packs. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
