Presented is a fascinating and extremely substantial collection of sixty-two different unopened Topps packs spanning the years 1970 to 2019, representing a complete run of unopened pack examples from these years. This outstanding collection was assembled one pack at a time by our consignor, who wanted to illustrate the progression of baseball-card packs from the year of his birth to the present. The packs from 1970 to 1992 are classic wax packs, while the packs shifted in design to foil beginning in 1993. Also, starting in 1993, sets were issued in Series 1 and Series 2. At least one pack is present from each year; both Series 1 and 2 are present for 2000-2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019. Topps Update packs are also included for 2008 and 2010. Overall condition of the packs is Nr/Mt, with light shelf wear visible along the edges on some. The 1971 pack is graded EX 5 by GAI. This is a very fun and relatively inexpensive history of pack collecting from 1970 to the present. Total: 62 packs. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
