Original wax box of 1980-1981 Topps basketball. The box houses thirty-six packs with each pack containing eight cards for a total of 288 cards. The 1980-1981 Topps set includes rookie cards of Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. 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. All the other stars of the day are also included. This box comes shrink-wrapped by Baseball Card Exchange (owned by Steve Hart, the foremost expert on unopened material). The box displays small areas of shelf wear but otherwise appears almost exactly as it did on store shelves more than thirty-five years ago! Total: 36 packs. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
