Extraordinary original unopened wax pack of 1969-1970 Topps basketball cards. The 1969-1970 set represents Topps' first large-scale basketball effort in over a decade (since its first issue in 1957) and is extremely popular with collectors due to its size, design, and star selection. Crisp, clean unopened wax pack in virtually perfect condition, looking as it did when it appeared in a box on a candy-store shelf in 1969. The pack displays a beautiful full-color wrapper and a tight seal. There are a few tiny spots of wear at the corners. This is an exceptional ultra-high-grade and extremely rare unopened pack of 1969-1970 Topps, one of the most popular of all early basketball issues. Due to the size of the pack, PSA does not have a holder large enough to safely secure the pack, but Steve Hart of the Baseball Card Exchange (the leading authority on unopened material) has personally reviewed this pack and assured us it is 100% guaranteed unopened. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
