1953 Topps Unopened Five-Cent Wax Pack
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $4,112.50
Graded EX+ 5.5 by GAI. Offered is an extraordinarily crisp, fresh-looking, unopened 1953 Topps five-cent wax pack. This bright multicolored pack is tightly wrapped, and appears exactly as it did the day it was picked up from the candy-store shelf in 1953 and purchased for a nickel. It is a miracle that any packs of cards from more than half a century ago still exist in their original unopened state. They are, of course, very rare, and this is one of the few survivors from the glory days of baseball cards of the early 1950s. This is an extraordinary high-grade unopened pack of 1953 Topps, one of the most popular of all early Topps issues, containing six essentially perfect (no guarantees, but possibly PSA 9 or PSA 10 quality) never-touched-by-human-hands cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,112.50
