Original unopened wax box of 1980 O-Pee-Chee baseball containing thirty-six unopened wax packs. Each pack contains ten cards for a total of 360 cards. The 1980 O-Pee-Chee set includes many Hall of Famers and stars, including the cards of Nolan Ryan, Ozzie Smith, and Carl Yastrzemski. The entire 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 Mint cards. This is a very rare box that is not often offered complete! O-Pee-Chee production is known to have been limited by a factory strike in late summer of 1980, which lasted more than a month, making the supply of boxes much smaller than other years. The display box has survived in outstanding condition with bright colors and minimal shelf wear visible. This is a stunning unopened wax box that would make a superb addition to any unopened wax box collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
