Presented is an astounding complete unopened cello box of 1959 Topps Football containing thirty-six original unopened 10-cent cello packs. Each cello pack houses twelve cards, for a total of 432 cards. This is an extremely rare complete unopened cello box! The 1959 Topps football set is very popular among collectors and features all the stars of the era, including Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Bart Starr, and Paul Hornung. The display box has survived in outstanding condition, with bright colors and light shelf wear, including a few light creases along the edges. The 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 Gem Mint cards. This tremendous high-grade unopened cello box, which looks exactly as it did when it sat on a candy-store shelf in 1959, would make an incredible addition to even the most advanced football or unopened-box collection. Reserve $5,000. Estimate (open).
