1957 Topps Baseball 2nd Series (Mantle Series) Wax Pack

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,997.50

Graded NM-MT+ 8.5 by GAI. This rare second series five-cent wax pack displays a beautiful full-color wrapper, no perforations on the corners, a tight seal, not a trace of dirt, and perfect gloss. It is incredible to see this pack in such extraordinary condition, looking exactly as it did in 1957 when it originally sat with countless others on candy store shelves. It's a stunner, and while its contents are of course unknown, that mystery is also a part of its great appeal. Being from the second series, it is very possible that this pack includes #95 Mickey Mantle, the key card from the extremely popular 1957 set. This is an extraordinary unopened high-grade example of this rare Topps wax pack. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
