1954 Topps Unopened One-Cent Wax Pack "Dated" Variation - Jackie Robinson on Back - GAI Mint 9

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00

Graded Mint 9 by GAI. Offered is an extraordinarily crisp, fresh-looking, unopened 1954 Topps one-cent wax pack ("dated" variation). Penny packs each contained one card and one piece of gum. Topps distributed these packs from 1952 to 1965. All unopened packs from the early 1950s are rare, but penny packs were produced in lesser quantities than nickel packs from this same era. 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 1954 and purchased for a penny. 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 a particularly interesting 1954 Topps pack as careful inspection reveals that the pack contains card #10 Jackie Robinson (which can be seen through the back of the wrapper if you look close enough). This is an exceptional ultra high-grade unopened pack of 1954 Topps, one of the most popular of all early Topps issues, containing one of the key stars of the set. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
