Complete original wax box of 1968 Topps football (1st series). Complete wax box of 1968 Topps houses twenty-four packs with each pack containing ten cards, for a total of 240 cards. This is an extraordinary complete display box with twenty-four packs that looks exactly as it did forty-two years ago, when boxes just like this sat on shelves in candy stores across the land. But few packs (let alone complete boxes) escaped being ripped open by ten-year-olds! This is an ideal and extremely rare box that escaped the normal fate of packs and has been carefully stored away since the year of issue. The 1968 Topps set includes cards of Hall of Famers Joe Namath, Gale Sayers, and many other stars from the era. 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 Gem Mint cards of these stars, as well as many other top players of the day. The wax packs are all in Nr/Mt or better condition. The store display box has typical light shelf wear. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
