Graded EX 5 by PSA. This five-cent wax pack from the fourth series displays a beautiful full-color wrapper, a tight seal, no staining, and glorious gloss. The corners are all intact, with only a few tiny spots along the top and left borders where it appears that the gum has nicked the wax paper. The spots are almost perfectly placed (if they have to be there) so as to not distract at all from this pack's superb display value. It is absolutely incredible to see this pack, looking exactly as it did in 1960 when it originally sat with countless others on candy-store shelves. It's a stunner, and while its contents are of course unknown, that mystery is a part of its great appeal. Being from the fourth series, it is very possible that this pack includes #350 Mickey Mantle, the key card from this popular set. Given the popularity and price increases that all Mantle cards have enjoyed recently, it is hard not to consider the increased value prospects of a completely original, unopened wax pack such as this. This is an extraordinary example of an unopened Topps wax pack from this popular set, ideally from the Mickey Mantle series! Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
