Original unopened wax box of 1978-1979 Topps basketball. The box houses thirty-six packs with each pack containing ten cards, for a total of 360 cards. The 1978-1979 Topps basketball set features rookie cards of Hall of Famer Dennis Johnson and Bernard King as well as numerous other stars and Hall of Famers, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Pete Maravich, and Julius Erving. While it is impossible to provide, guarantees regarding grading of unopened material, there is, of course, the very real possibility that within this box are Gem Mint cards of these stars, as well as many other top players of the day. 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! Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
