Complete original unopened wax box of 1973 Topps "You’ll Die Laughing" nonsport cards. The box houses thirty-six packs. This display box features a real-photo illustration of three of the actual cards from the set with Frankenstein front and center. The set title is boldly printed in red on top of the box. “Creature Feature” bubble-gum cards feature real-photos of Universal Studio monsters accompanied by amusing titles. Collectors commonly refer to the set as "You'll Die Laughing" from the large title on the back of each card (the "Creature Feature" title on the display box is printed in small text on the reverse of the cards). The entire box comes shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange (owned by Steve Hart, the foremost expert on unopened material). 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 examples. The store display box is bright and bold, with only a few minor touches of shelf wear. It otherwise presents exactly as it did on store shelves over forty years ago! This is an outstanding complete unopened wax box from this very popular nonsport issue. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
