Description



Reviewing the general high quality of this enormous non-spot card hoard, it’s easy to spot the fact that our consignor is a serial pack-buster. Teeming with razor sharp examples this considerable assortment can only have been accumulated through the opening of countless wax packs and/or vending boxes. There’s no denying our man’s discerning eye, as even the small number of cards that can not be described as pack fresh are still far better than average. Headed up by (121) PSA graded cards, this collection progresses from mid-1930s to mid-1950s issues in above average to top notch condition and then moves into the bulk of the lot dating from the late-1950s to early-1980s, which are nearly all pack fresh. Subjects include a variety of gum, candy and tobacco types from the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, humor, space exploration, military, music and more.
