Presented is a collection of fifteen different Topps display boxes, spanning the years 1951 through 1971, with many highlights. The collection consists of the following: 1951 Topps (one-cent, Vg with all four seams split on box top), 1960 Topps (five-cent, Ex), 1961 Topps (five-cent, Ex), 1962 Topps (five-cent, three puncture holes on the bottom panel, otherwise Vg), 1964 Topps (five-cent, Vg-Ex), 1965 Topps (five-cent, Ex), 1966 Topps (five-cent, Vg-Ex), 1967 Topps (five-cent, Ex), two 1968 Topps (both five-cent boxes, one regular box, Ex, and the other advertises the 1968 Topps Game cards on a side panel, Vg), 1969 Topps (five-cent, two seams are split, otherwise Vg), 1970 Topps (Gd), 1970 Topps "Super" (flap separated on top lid, otherwise Vg), 1971 Topps (Vg), and a generic Hobby trade card cello box (Vg-Ex). All of the boxes have bright colors and light to moderate shelf wear, and as expected, display light creases on the panels, but still have strong eye appeal. Many feature advertising for inserts and illustrations of stars. A very substantial group with many highlights. Total: 15 boxes. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
